Turckheim, Alsace

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Brand (Turckheim) Grand Cru Riesling 1994

Really exceptional well aged grand cru Alsatian Riesling. Amber in the glass, but no hint of oxidation on the nose. Just pure deep honeyed white fruits. Mouth filling and quite viscous without being remotely cloying. Long finish, though the acid is starting to fade ever so slightly. Really a mesmerizing wine. — 14 days ago

Kuentz-Bas

Alsace Riesling 2017

Easy, fresh & approachable Riesling. Hints of honeysuckle accent the peach & light citrus. Good tension & crisp acid. Lingers on the palate & calls you back for another sip. — 2 days ago

Heimbourg Riesling 2017

Intriguing nose. Stony minerality with beeswax, wool and animality. Hints of herbs and cinnamon. Gooseberry, peach and yellow apple. Orange juice and lime. Honey. Zesty finish. Great match with Spargeln. And likely even better with sashimi or dim sum. — 3 days ago

Heimbourg Turckheim Riesling

Still young. Needs time to shed off that chubbiness. Good? Yes, surely; but I’ll be giving it at least another 20 — a month ago

Can’t expect much more from a Pinot Blanc. Well balanced and good tension. Light-medium bodied. Brie, grapefruit, green apple. Versatile partner and an excellent value. — 10 days ago

Linsenberg Vin 'Alsace Riesling 2015

One of the worst labels I’ve seen in a while, but the wine is exemplary. Gorgeous nose has pungent stony minerality, crisp zingy apple, and lemon-lime. Soft and mouthfilling, but with a real sense of lightness. Crisp and dry but full of very pure fruit. Long, snappy finish. — 5 days ago
