ZIND-HUMBRECHT Muscat Turckheim 2016

See the wine detail page

90 Points

From a richer part of the valley floor (with more loess) and a younger and a very old vineyard planted in the 1950s, the 2016 Muscat Turckheim is a 100% Muscat d'Alsace (or à petits grains) and opens with a clear, fresh and beautifully aromatic Muscat grape bouquet. On the palate, this is a dry, full-bodied, well-structured, perfectly balanced Muscat with good grip and mineral tension and even a slightly salty finish where some stimulating citrus flavors show up. It's a great pleasure to drink right now.
