"- June 1995 - If you don't think Alsatian Pinot Blanc can be profound, check out the 1993 Pinot D'Alsace, a 35% Chardonnay/15% Pinot Blanc/50% Pinot Auxerrois blend made from some of that fairy tale region's finest vineyards (Clos Windsbuhl, Herrenweg, and Rotenberg). A beautiful Pinot d'Alsace with an intense fragrance of tangerines, minerals, and honey, this pure wine offers gobs of deliciously well-delineated, ripe fruit with a floral note. It exhibits medium body, exceptional intensity, as well as fabulous elegance and precision. Better than most grand cru white burgundies, this delicious Pinot d'Alsace should last for 2-3 years. The 1992 and 1993 wines reviewed in this issue are the wines of a genius.
