Domaine Bott-Geyl Muscat 2002 wine review by (PB)

This Alsatian varietal is made by the same folks who made the stellar Gewurztraminer I raved about in an earlier post. This wine--like the Gewurz--was bought on close out for $7.

It has a lovely light gold color and is a little musty on opening with sweet aromas of honey and something else I can't peg.

In the mouth this wine is surprisingly crisp where I had expected a dessert wine. Muscats are often made as aperitifs or dessert wines but this Alsatian Muscat was definitely a food wine.

Another bargain found on closeout and as I bought the only two remaining, I have one left which I'll open in a few months or maybe another year just for kicks. Raise a glass to bargain closeouts.
