Domaine du Pavillon Clos des Mouches Beaune 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Excellent best of the tasting but 125$. Plenty of minerals, has already the hazelnut undercurrent. North of what I would usually spend but as part of a tasting why not. — a month ago

Domaine Long-Depaquit (Albert Bichot)

Les Vaucopins Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay

Darker yellow than typical Chablis; good nose of wet grass and lighter fruit with some oak. Very smooth but much more of a Chardonnay taste than Chablis; a touch buttery, apple & pear flavor- a full bodied white. — 22 days ago

Edelzwicker Reserve Alsace White Blend 2017

I love this Alsatian producer and am loving this Alsatian blend from Albert Boxler.

The term “Edelzwicker” in Alsace, France, historically -- dating back to the 17th Century -- indicated a wine made exclusively from a blend of the “noble” varieties, i.e., it had to be a blend involving Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris, and/or Gewurztraminer.

The term became deregulated in the late 20th Century, which explains how Albert Boxler now uses the name for a wine comprised of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris, as a reminder Pinot Blanc is not a noble variety.

Perhaps this wine is both a nod to tradition and a commentary on how things can change. Perhaps this beautiful wine is a pure reflection of what tasted and blended best from the 2017 vintage, notwithstanding the noble (or lack of noble) status of the grapes involved, still deserving of the Edelzwicker designation due to style.

This wine is medium lemon. It has medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas, which include notes of ripe white peach, pear, apricot, cantaloupe, also white blossom, honeysuckle, and wet slate. On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. The finish is medium.

Grand Cru Brand Riesling 2017

Mid yellow, strong and powerful on the powerful with impressive Le goth on the honey, guava and lime palate. This is proper Riesling that is thankfully drinking well now but I’d expect to develop beautifully for many years to come. First Boxler wine for me and I’ll be buying more on this evidence. Good comparison to Germany’s GGs. — a month ago
