Domaine Moltes, Gewurztraminer, Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé, Alsace, France, 2015
GOLD Medal 95/100 Elegant, aromatic nose of rose-petal and pineapple unravels in the glass, leading to a medium-bodied, mineral, vibrant palate with a richness and purity – a touch of sweetness is given lift and vigour thanks to a fine acidity. With a long finish, this is classy and very attractive.
Moltès, Terroir Pinot Noir, Alsace, Alsace, France, 2013
SILVER Medal 90/100 Intense nose with oak and blackberries, with the intensity found on the nose repeating on the structured, juicy black-cherry palate: smoky oak, forthright but ripe tannins, a deep and rich extraction, and a dense, spicy finish.
Moltès, Terre D’Apollon Riesling, Alsace, Alsace, France, 2014
BRONZE Medal 87/100 Aromatic, clean aromas of nettle and grass; fresh, off-dry palate with crisp acid and lemon-lime characters supported by a lean minerality – charming, easy-drinking.
Domaine Moltes, Pinot Gris, Grand Cru Steinert, Alsace, France, 2015
BRONZE Medal 89/100 Ripe stone fruit aromas with a touch of honey. Some baked apple-like sweetness on the palate though intensely fruity with good acidity and a long, suave finish
Domaine Moltès, Tradition Pinot Gris, Alsace, Alsace, France, 2015
BRONZE Medal 86/100 Aromatic, clean nose with notes of hazelnut, vanilla and peach; off-dry in the mouth, medium-bodied, with a fresh fruit salad-like character enlivened by decent acidity
