Muscat 2021 AOC Alsace


Fruity, fresh and crunchy

Muscat 2021 AOC Alsace

Particularly sensitive to climatic fluctuations, Muscat obliges us to plant it in various sectors in order to ensure a minimum harvest each year. It is therefore above all the grape varieties from which it comes from that express themselves there.

Tasting notes

  • Pale yellow with silver highlights
  • Particularly expressive and charming nose with delicate floral nuances of hawthorn, fresh fruit notes and of course a musky side.
  • A silky attack followed by an aromatic burst of fresh fruit that gives the sensation of biting directly into the grape, all supported by a fine acidity that prolongs the mouth on a pleasant note of freshness.

Food and wine pairing

Its fruitiness and freshness make it a thirst-quenching wine that is particularly pleasant as an aperitif, as well as at any time of day, especially in summer. Excellent with asparagus when combined with a fine sauce such as hollandaise or mousseline. Also very pleasant with scallops just fried or Sushi (without the wasabi!) or with a good slice of Kougelhopf!
