Mes vins plaisirs à moins de 10€

Mes vins plaisirs à moins de 10€ (Jean-Pierre Coffe) (éditions PLON)

He can be proud of his soil (...) in the villages Pfaffenheim and Westhalten south of Colmar (...). This land gives the Riesling in particular a surpassing, subtle grace, which Pierre-Paul Zink brings out with great mastery.

De ELZAS wijnroute

De ELZAS wijnroute (Etienne Van Steenberghe) (éditions GLOBE)

"Nog best betaalbaar. Gezellig proeflokaal. Sympathieke ontvangst. Een absolute aanrader"

Les Grands Crus d' Alsace

Serge Dubs (World’s best Sommelier 1989), “Les Grands Crus d’Alsace”(éditions Serpenoise)

An excellent wine (...) A storage wine, certainly a bit nervous and impulsive when young, but which attains a rich body and fullness by virtue of the personality of the terrain.
