April: Simple Excellence
If anything connects these wines, it’s their simple excellence.
Let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat though: the Schoech stands alone and it is not really fair to compare the other wines to it. After all, it is a Grand Cru. And not just any Grand Cru, but perhaps the finest vineyard in all of Alsace. Monumental, sculpted, deeply mineral, insanely long and intensely fruited – this is Serious Wine, with a capital S and W. Explore these four wines and savor their simple excellence for yourself!
