Muscat Ottonel & Reisling

Don’t judge a wine by its varietals… that’s what I’m reminded of today, tasting this vintage of Le Bec Fin white. You may be tempted to assume that the Muscat would bring uninteresting, low acidity, possibly even overly viscous wine - and combined with Riesling might just be sweet despite the description. However, this vintage brings all the beautiful aromas of an incredible Alsatian Riesling to the forefront, and in true Jean Claude style the acidity and balance strikes a harmonious chord. A surprisingly crisp profile but with a hint of spring blossom that a Sauv Blanc could be envious of. No need to get fancy about it - twist the top and settle in with your cozy pants and a bowl of Fritos, and your favorite true crime show.
