Alsace Riesling

Lucien Albrecht

Pfingstberg Alsace Grand Cru AOC Riesling 2012

Floral, honeyed, lively and dense. Bursting with apricot and lychee fruit which mingle well with lemongrass, ginger and jasmine. There’s both freshness and weight, with a subtle minerality. Excellent with Thai cuisine, comfort style. — 3 days ago

Trimbach

Alsace Riesling 2015

It would be unwise to underestimate the quality and complexity of Trimbach’s entry level wines, particularly the Riesling. Racy salt-preserved lemon, Granny Smith apple, orchard blossoms, ginger and shimmering minerality are what define this wine in addition to its petrol-forward personality. What it might lack in textural richness it more than compensates for with lovely freshness and kinetic energy on the palate. Outstanding vintage. (Kittens not included) — 19 days ago

Grand Cru Kaefferkopf Riesling 2014

One of the best Rieslings I’ve had in a while. Young but honeyed and peachy. Balanced acidity. Crisp. Delicious. — 13 hours ago

Delicious traditional Riesling full of green apple, pear, and dusty dry fruit flavors. Good avid, not overwhelming, and a great buy. — 10 days ago

The story about this wine for me is about the fragility of life. It was about a year ago that I last drank a bottle - in a little Japanese restaurant called BISSOH, in the heart of Beaune, among riesling and burg lovers, among people whom I regard as my family away from home. We were celebrating the life of a man, who I got to know only a couple months before and admittedly knew little about. But that didn't matter. We all bonded over wine, and he was a man of preposterous passion for it. What really got to me was how quick it all went from drinking the best wines with him to drinking the best wines for him. Hits really close to home.

I've decided upon this wine as my choice to start populating my cellar in Malaysia. Why? For one, it's to remember the life of Tino. Also, riesling's a little hard to come by in Malaysia... so thank God for Trimbach. But perhaps most importantly, it's so bloody delicious!

I love the 08's precision and focus. It smells of flowers, stone fruits, then flowers again, then straight up stone, herbs, almonds. The palate's just liquid rock. And the finish... Breathtaking. Waves of citrusy goodness. However, it needs time. The acid sticks out like a sore thumb at the moment. I reckon with a bit of laying down, it'll integrate right in. What a complete CFE it'll be then 😍

2018 Fall dinner for the Confrerie St Etienne.

Dry and aromatic; nose has typical Alsatian petrol Riesling notes. Zestiness to the palate with tangerine and orange blossom and a chalky, slate finish.
