Region: Alsace, France
Color/Style: White Wine
This Riesling from André’s estate vineyards around Epfig has a very transparent, crystalline nose and the type of purity and focus that is virtually impossible to achieve with any other white grape. There is a reason—there are many reasons, really—why Riesling is so prized across northern Europe; when it is "on" (as in this cuvée), it is a real thoroughbred that is tough to catch. A touch of creaminess rounds out the edges and makes this deliciously drinkable right now.
