esbrown reviewed Domaine Bott-Geyl Alsace 2008 on July 7, 2010
The Bott Geyl Metiss takes its name because it is a melange of colors: Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois with their yellow skin, Gris with a greyish/ pink hue, and then the Black Pinot, and it is an appropriate name as it is a seemless blend of the best aspects of each. The apples and creamy texture of the blanc and Auxerrois shine through, while the spicy nature of the Gris adds touches of almond, clove and ginger. The Pinot Noir adds a touch of golden raspberry and a silky feel. Overall an excellent example of Alsatian wine that is hard to define but easy to love. Also certified organic and biodynamic if you are into that sort of thing.
