Bechtold 2018 Cremant d'Alsace (Pinot Auxerrois/Chardonnay)

A blend of Pinot Auxerrois and Chardonnay (yes, Chardonnay in Alsace!) from a long-time organic estate in Alsace. Very classy, dry and framed by mineral cut. There's enough golden fruit and brioche on the nose to give the sense of broadness, but overall it's a clean and fresh traditional style sparkler... and a fantastic deal!  -EL

Frick 2014 Alsace Grand Cru Muscat Steinert

Grand Cru Steinert is the steepest vineyard in Pfaffenheim with bedrock of limestone covered with thin stony soil and rocks with fossilized shells, very dry and porous, famous for wines with intense mineral flavors. The 2014 Muscat is extremely dry (0.5 g/l RS) with 12.6% alcohol, a beautifully balanced wine. The aromas of citrus and white flowers typical of Muscat are joined by almond, stone and earth. The palate is quite earthy with subtle flavors of citrus, peach and almond, with a bit of the musky flavor found in natural wines. The finish is all minerals and citrus expressing the limestone terroir. A Vin Nature to contemplate with a full-flavored raw milk cheese, or perhaps sauteed monkfish with ginger and garlic. Best to decant or open a day or two in advance...

Frick 2020 Alsace Grand Cru Riesling Steinert

Grand Cru Steinert is the steepest vineyard in Pfaffenheim with bedrock of limestone covered with thin stony soil, very dry and porous. The wine shows a bright gold color with aromas of limestone, honeysuckle and verveine with a touch of iodine - the palate is ripe and energetic with saline flavors framing citrus confit, white fruits, with a long mineral finish. Every so slightly off-dry, in a welcome, food-friendly way. Less than 15mg/l of SO2, 14.3% alcohol, 7.5 gr/l RS
