Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Clos Windsbuhl Hunawihr Riesling 2014

Pop and pour. An arresting medium gold color. On the nose: pear, honey, apple, floral with a hint of cinnamon. Taste: lemon, some tangerine, pear , minerals . A firm dry wine with just a touch of sweetness that went well with all kind of food at Luce restaurant — 3 days ago

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 — 10 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 🍾 🥂

Annoyingly seem to have lost my notes on this. But this was everything I expected and more from this Riesling: bracingly acidic, juicy, long, beautiful. Excited to see how it ages. — 25 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. — 2 days ago

Clos Windsbuhl Tokay Pinot Gris 1993

Beautifully aged Tokay/Pinot Gris from 1993. Apricots and green apples in the nose. Acidity meddles sweet fruit texture on the palate. A very rich, mouthfilling wine. Long zesty fruit finish. nature yet youthful. Nice now but I'd like to try it again in 7-10 years. Great wine brought into the USA by my old friend, Brian Lynch, by Kermit Lynch Wine Merchants. Yum's the word. — a month 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! — a day ago

Hugel et Fils

Gentil Alsace Sylvaner Blend 2015

This might be Hugel’s standard Alsatian white blend, but this wine is quite complex. Tropical fruit and apricot aromas and flavors. Hint of lemon zest. Loads of minerality. Mouth watering acidity. Good stuff. — 8 days ago
