Dirler-Cadé 2015 Alsace Grand Cru Muscat Saering

From biodynamically farmed vines in the clay, sandstone, limestone soils of the east, southeast-facing grand cru Saering vineyard, Domaine Dirler-Cadé 2015 Muscat offers an exotic nose on opening with aromas of litchi, orange oil, blackberry leaf, and wet stone. The pleasingly dry and stony palate has bright acidity and a dense core of minerality that belies the flamboyant aromatic profile. This is a lovely Muscat, with exuberant perfume and vibrant flavors and a savory, nearly salty finish. Enjoy with asparagus vinaigrette or Thai green curries. John McIlwain

Valentin-Zusslin 2014 Alsace Sylvaner Bollenberg

From the south-facing Bollenberg lieu-dit in Orschwir, a hill that stands apart from the foothills of the Vosges. The soils are iron-rich clays. The vines are farmed biodynamically, the grapes undergo extreme selection before fermentation with native yeasts and aging in large Vosges casks. The 2014 Sylvaner Bollenberg offers enticing aromas of apricot, cool crushed herbs, golden apple skin, and apple blossoms. The palate is fresh and lively, with flavors of perfectly ripe stone fruit, faint tropical notes, a bracing herbaceousness, and an incisively savory finish. The 2014 embodies the charm of Sylvaner, while expressing enough stoniness to captivate the most ardent rock fan. A fine pairing with poached chicken with salsa verde and grand with a ripe triple crème cheese, this would enliven lighter fish preparations and make for a splendid apéritif. John McIlwain
