2010 Bruno Sorg Muscat - France, Alsace, Alsace AOC (10/15/2012)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 3 days; TN is mostly from Day 1 --
NOSE: extremely expressive notes of lychee and powdery florals --- smells like a fresh, powdery perfume; slight hint of matchstick. Day 3: lychee note has turned more pear-like. Absolutely intoxicating Nose this wine has!
BODY: green-yellow color; medium bodied.
TASTE: sweet --- akin to a Kabinett Riesling level of sweetness; lychee; hint of powdery orange candy; mineral-laden finish is long, and of medium+ intensity; simple, but very good within the spectrum it occupies; I imagine the concentration of flavor, r.s., and low alc. (12% alc. is not noticeable) would allow this to develop over the short term in the cellar; perhaps a bit low in acidity. Day 3: No perceptible degradation of quality from Day 1. Must be approached as a sweet wine --- this is a great Kabinett Riesling changeup.
B: 50, 5, 12, 16, 7 = (90 pts.)
