White wine. Alsace, France. Biodynamic. 65% Auxerrois, 35% Pinot Blanc. Bright golden-tinged straw-yellow. Exotic honeyed citrus fruits, a hint of coconut and green grapefruit on a nose complicated by a spicy botrytis nuance. Sweet on entry, then lush, with orange peel and grapefruit flavors, but lacks the lift and depth of the grand cru. The exotic quality carries through to the back end, which is firm and long. These are clay-loamy soils and the vines face southeast; in 2016, the grapes were harvested on October 22. According to Marie-Thérèse, the Rosenberg is sure to be moved up to premier cru status; she believes it to be an exceptionally interesting site. Only 12.5% alcohol, 18 g/L residual sugar and 8 g/L total acidity, so this tastes off-dry rather than classically dry." — 89 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous (April 2018)
