2019 Muscat Goldert Grand Cru, Zind-Humbrecht

Muscat is the maligned grape of Alsace. But in the right hands, it is one of the most wonderful wines to discover. This 2019 is fleshy, peachy, with vibrant acidity, greengage freshness, and terrific mineral drive. It has just a touch of residual sugar, but feels pretty close to dry on the palate. Goldert is the only cru in Alsace with marine oolithic limestone, which is a staggering 235 million years old. It is a late ripening terroir, and engenders the wine with a taut line of acidity not always common to the variety. There is not even a hint of the vulgar varietal character you find in a common Muscat. This 2019 has the phenolic ripeness, tension, and concentration to transcend that entirely. It’s an incredibly smart buy.
