eROBERT PARKER 92+ POINTS: "The 2013 Riesling Grand Cru Furstentum starts deep, coolish and intense on the nose, showing aromas of very ripe pineapples Read More...
along with candied fruit flavors. Full, rich, broad, intense and elegant, this well structured and spicy Riesling shows more tannins than the Schlossberg, but reveals a very juicy and meaty palate of good concentration. Very long in the finish and stilly young, this medium-dry Riesling should age very well."

ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: A heady, esterous nose of over-ripe cantaloupe, white peach, quince preserves, and fading lily informs the Boxler 2009 Riesling Read More...
Sommerberg Vendange Tardive – harvested in the Dudenstein soon after the “regular” bottling from that site – leading to a lush and soothing palate on which quince preserves, peach, nutmeg, and liquefied lily are well-supported by sweetness. There is a fine sense of primary juiciness that – along with hints of fruit pit bitterness – helps moderate the sweetness of a sedate finish slightly less sustained and more diffuse than that of the corresponding “regular” bottling. Expect this to age well for at least 12-15 years. Jean Boxler relates that in 2009 he picked some parcels of young wines early due to stress, then sold off the juice; and any under 15 years’ age he didn’t even bother to pick. Eventually, when he harvested his older vines and best sites, the sugar levels were the same – but not the flavors. He deftly charted a course with most of the resulting wines between alcohol and residual sugar, but to the extent it was unavoidable, sinned on the side of sweetness. From 2008, almost predictably given the track record at this address, Boxler rendered sharply focused, minerally complex, yet seductively fruit-filled wines that should prove excellent both as keepers and as partners with cuisine. Boxler compares these wines with his 2002s and finds then “definitely more interesting than the 2001s.” While most of the 2008s finished fermenting already by Christmas – which is par for the course chez Boxler – he points out that several of the extraordinary wines from the Brand lingered into spring. (For some detail on among other things Boxler’s different Riesling parcels, see my report in issue 188.)

ROTENBERG is the most precocious terroir of Bergheim. Its red soil is marked by iron and limestone. The Riesling and Pinot Gris are evident in the shimmering citrus characteristics, Read More...
fine and very elegant. The Rotenberg is enjoyable quite young, fresh and aerial with its lemon frame, very aromatic and light on the palate!

Stephen Tanzer 90 Points-"Bright straw. A fusel quality complicates tangerine and blood orange on the expressive nose. Chewy, rich and rather full-bodied, with ripe apricot and peach flavors complemented by anise and licorice notes. The smooth, rich finish lingers nicely with repeating anise and licorice nuances. This has a more evolved nose than the 2011, which I found surprising given that 2010 was the cooler, higher-acid vintage."

The famous Schoenenbourg vineyard is sourced for the flagship of Domaine Deiss. This Terroir is distinguished by its southern exposure and steepness with marl mixed with gypsum covered Read More...
by the Vosges sandstone. The result is a rich, ageable wine of nobility, which magically combines an impression of strong extract with a weightless quality, very impressive.

ANTONIO GALLONI 95 POINTS - "Bright, deep yellow. Ripe, vibrant aromas of white peach, lemon zest, chamomile and balsamic herb are complicated by lemony botrytis. Silky on entry, then round and fresh in the middle, with terrific lemony cut providing excellent energy. Really resonates on the floral, saline, tactile back end, leaving the taste buds vibrating under a lemon meringue and peach sheen. In terms of richness this seems to fall between the Mambourg and the Altenberg; it usually needs more time in the cellar than the wines from either one of those sites. In ten years' time this will be intensely mineral rather than tropical, the latter quality more typical of the Altenberg and especially the Mambourg. Best from 2018-2034

Maison Kuentz-Bas was first established by the Kuentz family in 1795, and the domaine as we know it today was forged through a marriage that joined the Kuentz and Bas families in 1895. Jean-Read More...
Baptiste Adam current owner like the estate’s former owners, has a reputation for being an advocate of Alsatian terroir. Eager to restore Kuentz-Bas to its former glory, Adam lowered yields significantly and reverted to natural methods, following organic and biodynamic approaches to vineyard work. Reduced doses of sulfur allow for a greater expression of fruit, and a drier fermentation yields crisp, mineral-laden wines with less residual sugar.
WINE ENTHUSIAST - "Fine, soft and round, this is a simple Pinot Blanc that’s fruity and creamy. Apples and pears dominate the fruit flavors, with a texture that is open and ready to drink."

Famille Sparr has been making wines in Alsace since 1680. They own 15 hectares and work with well-experienced wine growers on another 130 hectares. Alsace is famous for food-friendly wines-- Read More...
with a history incorporating French and German traditions, the wines have benefited from both. And for those of us on staff who unabashedly love French and German wines, is this not perfect? Is is-- and especially with turkey. The nose has notions of peach pit, apricot zest, sweet brown spice and a touch of river water minerality. The palate is rich and viscous with both light sweetness and acidity. On the palate, peach and apricot flavors resound, more brown spices and river rock notes surface, a touch of citrus keeps it fresh as we meander to the long, tasty finish.

and pineapple notes with pleasantly bitter hints of pink grapefruit peel and green papaya, with a touch of curry spices. A rich style, but balanced nonetheless. Drink now through 2020. 1,100 cases made." –AN

eROBERT PARKER 89 POINTS: "A deeply-golden 2008 Gewurztraminer Kessler smells multifariously and enticingly of grilled pineapple, bacon, malt, and a maritime medley of salt spray, fresh scallop, and poached oysters. Subtly honeyed; oily in texture; this wine’s sweet tropical fruit flavors are suffused with the aforementioned, sweetness-offsetting, enticing, and mouthwatering maritime elements, which – along with significant bitterness – inform the sustained finish. This will be best drunk over the next 5-7 years, although it might well keep longer. (My only experience with significantly aged Schlumberger bottlings was from an era when the style was quite different.)"

eROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: "The 2007 Riesling Frederic Emile is clear, deep and fruit intense on the nose, very aromatic and mineral. It has over-ripe, dried raisin flavors on the palate that are intense, dry and compact, but does not have the finesse and stimulating elegance of the Clos Ste Hune. "
