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 — 9 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 🍾 🥂

Really sexy, rounded and lovely. Lemon chiffon and rocks. The old vines very obviously add length on the palate and superior texture. #ostertag #alsace #sylvaner — a year ago

Domaine Loew

Alsace Riesling Blend 1970

Vintage 2017 / #biodynamic AGentil wine, like they used to make in #Alsace long ago. Made from #riesling #muscat #pinotgris #gewurztraminer. Vibrant wine with good balance. Paired it as a starter with ripe pear and bluecheese. — a year ago

Steingrubler Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2015

A bit diffuse, with low acidity; something that plagues a lot of Alsace ‘15s. Subtle, one note aroma & palate of apple blossoms; I might’ve called it Riesling blind. Still, mildly sweet and very tasty. Drink up. #gewürtztraminer #albertmann #alsace — 2 years ago

Domaine Schoffit

Vieilles Vignes Alsace Chasselas 2015

2015. Always one of my favorite Alsace wines. Like a lot of wines of this hot, dry, problematic vintage, it’s not built for the long run, but it’s fat, rich and full of spiced pear and vanilla aromas and flavors. Bring on the choucroute! #schoffit #chasselas #alsace — a year ago

Explosive rose petal aromatics with lots of spice. Significantly off dry on the palate was surprising. Good fresh acid and lot to much bitterness. #alsace #gewürtztraminer #blindtasting — 2 years ago

Richer on the nose than the palate. Nose hadsome advanced age notes. Loose structure. Dry on finish which was short. Lacks character. Good standard #riesling Missing lift and texture and fruit in mid palate. #domainagape #alsace #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago
