Domaine Jean Ginglinger

Alsace AOC Riesling 2018

A feral Riesling animal. Textured orchard fruits and sour cream. Acid burbling through apples and pears - favors fruits and ferment in exchange for minerals and petrol. Don’t procrastinate as this will turn quickly in a day or two. — 3 days ago

Vignoble du Rêveur

Singulier Riesling

Deeply complex, but not super intense. You have to go to it, but it’s great when you do. White flowers, starfruit and other tropicals, stone fruit, musty herbs, petrol, food brew coffee, raisins (think a dry PX sherry note). The deep notes and fruit notes aren’t integrated into one another per se, but they harmonize like a duet. Really cool wine. — 9 days ago

Cave Vinicole de Kientzheim-Kaysersberg

Anne de K Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling 2017

Straw hue. Nose of white flowers and orchard fruit. Fresh pear, apple, peach, and cantaloupe, honeysuckle, white lilies, honey, and wet stone on the palate. Dry. Vintage 2017. ABV 13%. Works well with the spiciness and heat of the chili. Spent considerable time thinking about what best to pair with chili, from a wine perspective. Glad we chose this one, but second choice was to pair with a Southern Rhône, Grenache-based blend, which leads me to this question: what wine do you think best complements chili or a red-meat dish with Mexican spices? So curious as to what others have tried and liked. #riesling #alsace #alsacegrandcru #schlossberg #annekriesling — 18 days ago

Wow, tough question. With chili I prefer ice water. With spicey dishes I lean toward beer or again water . Maybe ill learn more from others responses.

Thanks @Dennis P. The Riesling was pretty good, but I think beer would be another promising pairing! Or perhaps champagne 🍾 🥂

Trimbach

Cuvée Frédéric Emile Alsace Riesling 2008

Consistent with my last note here (about a year back). Looks like it hasn't moved much - still as good and as acidic. Definitely one of my favourite 08' rieslings ❤️ — 2 days ago

Cave Vinicole d'Orschwiller-Kintzheim

Le Puits Du Moine Alsace Pinot Gris

Probably my all-time favourite white - perfect balance of acidity and sweetness, slight hint of mineral notes and lots of fruit (lychee, peaches, some pear). Lovely stuff! — 4 days ago

La Chimère Riesling 2015

Végétal, minéral, Pierre à fusil, effervescent! Vraiment très différent. C’est une expérience à vivre. Il y a un dépôt, verser légèrement ou décanter! — 9 days ago

Gentil Alsace Sylvaner Blend 2016

Pineapple and mango/peach, medium bodied with crisp acidity. Some flint on the finish. Really nicely balanced. Wish I bought a few more. Would probably age well. — 4 days ago
