About Domaine Leon Beyer
The Beyer family has been making wine in Eguisheim since the sixteenth century, although the domain wasn't established until 1867. Today, Beyer bottles the full complement of Alsace varieties: Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, Riesling, Tokay, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris.

($55) Bright straw-yellow. Pure, sexy aromas of spiced meats and clove. Broad, spicy and fat with fruit; as rich and horizontal as this is in the mouth, it also boasts terrific definition and subtlety. This, too, tastes sweeter than its four grams of sugar would indicate. But note that this wine will doubtless come across as drier and even more classic by the time it's released: Beyer was about to ship the 2003 (!) at the time of my visit. An outstanding vintage for this bottling.
