Description of the wine Muscat Herrenweg de Turckheim 2000

This wine comes from a vineyard planted in 1947 by my grand parents, which includes also a lot of the gewürztraminer and riesling in the Herrenweg vineyard. 80% Muscat Ottonel and 20% Muscat d’Alsace mean that it is always a very aromatic, grapey Muscat.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The 2000 shows the extraordinary potential of this gravely soil: high maturity, fully dry, intense nose and yet has an elegant palate. This is the perfect alternative to sparkling aperitif if not used with spicy food.
