Crémant d’Alsace is definitely a success of this vintage, as well as Sylvaner is.
In this vintage, Riesling is really convincing : richness of aromas and ripe acidity.
Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois suffered a lot of wet summer conditions, but gave birth to dry wines all in softness and harmony.
Pinot Gris has a good structure and fruitiness, together with complexity.
Pinot Noir shows a good colour and elegant tannins.
Muscat are crisp and fruity.
And finally, Gewurztraminer are robust, fine and complex wines with notes of spice and yellow stewed fruits.
