Champagne - 1997

Elegance, finesse and uprightness: while not necessarily constituting a vintage year, it seems to have been fairly a success for the Chardonnays.

White Alsace - 1997

"The sweetest year of all time," as this vintage was described. In Mittelbergheim, all the more credit to Albert Seltz for producing some dry wines to go down in history. In the Riesling, but especially in the Sylvaner, of which he is an "unconditional" supporter, as his corks announce. For the Grand Cru Zotzenberg, still denied the appellation because the INAO does  not (yet) consider the Sylvaner a noble variety, this big, nervous brown grape gives a wine of an incredible complexity.

Jura - 1997

General quality of the vintage wine: very good. Excellent very well-balanced wines.
