Burg Bergheim Alsace Riesling Blend 1999

Alder Yarrow

There are excellent wines, and then there are magical wines. But some fewer still are singular and peerless, unique in their bearing, composition and inspiration. Such is the case with Burg. A stupefying field blend that harnesses everything that Alsace might be or become and transmutes it into something akin to watching the evening sun burst through a technicolor stained glass window on high. An all-encompassing blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat d'Alsace (white and red), Muscat à Petit Grain, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Traminer, Chasselas, and Chasselas Rose. This old bottle yielded wine the color of amber, smelling like candied orange peel, beeswax, and dried yellow flowers. Silky flavors of citrus rind, bergamot, honeysuckle and candle wax mix with still-excellent acidity and a stony underbelly that lingers through the candied-mandarin-rind finish. Slightly to moderately sweet. A wine of meditation to be sure. — 5 months ago

2018 Fall dinner for the Confrerie St Etienne.

This has got to be one of the better Pinot Gris I’ve had. More dry in style. Notes of baked apple and toasted pear round out the palate and finish. Went wonderfully with the pumpkin soup course.

Altenberg de Bergheim Alsace grand cru Gewürztraminer 2015

Yeah, what a wine. Full ripe tropical fruits, creamy vanilla with a light hint of caramel sweetness. Orange zest bitters. Quite sweet but just enough citrus sour to prevent it from becoming too thick. Mached excellent with the spicy lintal coconut dal for diner. But standalone it is even better. — 7 months ago

Engelgarten Bergheim Alsace Riesling Blend 2001

Some of my most favorite wines in the world. I discovered this bottle and a few others of its ilk recently lurking in the inventory of a local wine shop being sold for a song. I bought them all and opened the first one today. A bright Halloween orange in color this wine smells of orange peel, dark honey and exotic flowers. In the mouth, lightly sweet notes of orange blossom syrup, citrus peel, wet pavement and autumn leaves make for a gorgeous silky concoction. The acidity is filigreed and softening, but still very much a part of the wine. Exotic and alluring. A one-of-a-kind field blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Beurot, Muscat, and Pinot Noir. — 9 months ago

Altenberg de Bergheim Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2011

Burnt honey, lightly roasted nuts, lychee syrup, and a hint of petrol! Unctuous on the palate, with significant residual sugar balanced with growing bitterness in the finish. Nicely done. — 2 years ago

Grasberg Bergheim Alsace Riesling 2010

This wine, I believe is a field blend. The apricot fruit here makes me think there is a fair amount of Pinot Gris. Rich, viscous and luscious. Fairly sweet. Went well with spicy Asian chicken soup. — 7 months ago
