In the past, vineyards were plant collectives, with many varieties and the wine made in any area was just whatever grew in that vineyard. In Alsace, Gentil is such a collective wine, made from the blending of all the wineries varieties as here, a dab of pinot blanc, riesling, muscat and even Gewürztraminer. The result is spicy, luscious not cloying, and soft. A perfect everyday summer wine with an ancient pedigree.
