Red fruit notes of cranberry and cherry. The finish has some hints of 5 spice powder and even a bit of cinnamon. Has a really cool earthiness to it as well. Medium + acidity, medium body and medium tannins. Paired this with turmeric roasted cauliflower and it was great! — 3 days ago

Nature Gamay of very good quality, in the spirit of Marcel Lapierre (his nephew has told me). At the same time greedy, accessible, and with a very beautiful aromatic density which unfolds especially when one gives the wine time to air out. Superb for its price.
Gamay nature de très bonne facture, dans l’esprit de Marcel Lapierre (son neveux m’a t’on dit). À la fois gourmand, accessible, et avec une très belle densité aromatique qui se déploie d’autant plus qu’on laisse au vin le temps de s’aérer. Superbe pour son prix. — 19 days ago
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. — a month ago
