Tasting Notes

Muscat d'Alsace, expressing typical grape aromas, is very fruity and dry. It boasts a full bouquet and is the ideal aperitif. Muscat d'Alsace is the only dry Muscat grown in France. Its pale golden colour is shiny and limpid with discreet green tints. The refined and subtle nose marvellously reveals the Muscat's delicate and fruity features. Aniseed and citronella notes produce pleasant freshness. The fruit explodes on the palate and gives the impression of biting into a fresh grape. This Muscat offers well-balanced matter with good freshness and good volume. All the fruitiness of the Muscat is also expressed on the palate with very persistent and thirst-quenching length on the finish.


Food Pairing

Suitable as an aperitif. Dry and supple, this Muscat pairs well with sweet or salty snacks (kougelhopf or Alsatian-style bretzels). It goes perfectly well with creamy desserts, cold appetisers and spring salads. Suited to smoked salmon, crab with ginger, and cheerfully unbeatable with asparagus served with a hollandaise, a mousseline or a creamy sauce.
