Be Geyl

[grapes]Bott-Geyl 2004 “Gentil” (Alsace) – Smooth, deft stone fruit and the lightest forms of citrus, with a little bit of that classic Alsatian spice. Strong-willed for a Gentil, but not heavy. Very appealing. (8/09)


JP&F Becker 2004 “Gentil” (Alsace) – Malic steel, such that it tastes like riesling more than anything else. It’s a crisp, wet, juicy, thirst-inducing wine that bears not even the slightest hint of examination, for in truth everything other than the first refreshing burst of acidity, there’s not a whole lot to this wine. I’d happily drink it, but I’m not sure I’d buy it. (3/08)
