«L'Alsace Grand Cru Goldert Muscat 2016 [...] offre un bouquet très net, profond et fin avec des notes délicates minérales rafraîchissantes, florales et herbacées (coriandre, persil). En bouche, c'est un muscat très fin, élégant, complexe et persistant, doté d'une très longue finale saline, stimulante et captivante. De beaux amers en arrière-bouche font de ce Goldert un excellent vin de gastronomie.» (Wine Advocate 2018 - Robert Parker)

Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 5*****Stars (Exceptional producers, representing the very top of quality in France and in the world)

About the vineyard : For several decades, this estate has embodied an ideal of the absolute in terms of great wines of terroir. Léonard Humbrecht had visionary by acquiring superbly located plots on the Rangen: Clos Windsbuhl, Clos Jebsal, Brand or Hengst, his son Olivier magnifies the expression of the soils with an incredible intensity and power. The style of the estate had an inflection with the transition to biodynamy, in the late 1990s, wines still being more tense and more rights than in the past, even though they retained their wealth and their density. Entry-level wines until the Herrenweg cuvées, are expressive fairly quickly. On the other hand, as soon as someone enters the circle of the great terroirs, a cellaring in the bottle is generally required, the time that the wines express the best high balance between minerality and concentration.

About this wine : L'Alsace Grand Cru Goldert Muscat 2016 est composée à 90% de Muscat d'Alsace et à 10% d'Ottonel. Fermenté comme les Rieslings, pendant un an et avec une teneur en alcool de 12% et moins de deux grammes de sucre résiduel, le 2016 offre un bouquet très net, profond et fin avec des notes délicates minérales rafraîchissantes, florales et herbacées (coriandre, persil). En bouche, c'est un muscat très fin, élégant, complexe et persistant, doté d'une très longue finale salée, stimulante et captivante. De beaux amers dans l'arrière-goût font de ce Goldert un excellent vin de gastronomie.

About the vineyard : More than ever, this major estate flies high the colours of Alsace, with a range of wines that are difficult to ignore. Tireless ambassadors of their wines and the region, Olivier Humbrecht and his father Léonard have long understood the importance of the work in the vineyard. Involved in biodynamic viticulture, Olivier became one of the leaders in France. Installing in a huge cellar, in Turckheim, yet increased the quality. Aware of the stalemate caused by the increase of the maturity of the grapes and its corollary, the rise of residual sugars, the winemaker has returned  to drier wines since a few vintages, keeping their strong personality with a special concentration. As all great Alsatian, they take their size with a few years of cellaring.

L'AOC des vins d'Alsace et Alsace Grand Cru a été obtenue suite à de longues discussions au plan national. En 1935, un premier décret met en place les AOC françaises, mais les pourparlers avec l'INAO, organisme certificateur, ont été interrompus du fait de l'annexion de l'Alsace par l'Allemagne durant la  Seconde Guerre mondiale. Ce fut également la première appellation ...
