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.
94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
Pale straw yellow color. Complex, subtly cool aromas of grapefruit, mirabelle, citrus peel, white flowers, and minerals. Then dense, juicy and fresh, with a spherical texture and complex flavors of tropical fruits, mint and white pepper, along with a bright mineral overlay. Boasts wonderfully harmonious acidity, with a strong lemon zest and chlorophyll nuance echoing long on the minerally, very pure finish. Only 4 g/l residual sugar for this classically dry wine, and 5.6 g/l total acidity. Another great Comtes d'Eguisheim gewurz, made from grapes grown in the Eichberg cru, one of the greatest of all for this variety in Alsace.
