Barth, Laurent 2018 Alsace Racines Métisses

Laurent Barth's 2018 "Racines Metisses" is a delightful blend of many grape  varieties from his tiny organic estate in Bennwihr. Always around 50% Pinot Auxerrois (fermented separately), with Muscat, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and a touch of Riesling. The idea here is to make a wine that is easy to drink, says Laurent, and he nails it! The wine shows bright citrus, lime-flower, white fruits and Riesling aromas -  there's a subtle touch of spice on the palate, with silky white fruits, citrus and floral notes, with a crystalline minerality in the finish, thanks to the granite soils.  Delicious!  Eben Lillie

Barth, Laurent 2019 Alsace Pinots Gris, Auxerrois, Noir

This new cuvée from Laurent Barth is a delicious blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Auxerrois and Pinot Noir, fermented and aged in 600L and 1500L foudres, minimal S02 is added before bottling. An ebullient nose opens with aromas of ripe pears, green herbs and wet stones. The palate explodes with notes of poached pear, yellow cherries, candied orange peel and ginger chews. A hint of residual sugar is well balanced with vibrant acidity underscoring a long juicy finish. Spring in a glass! Giselle Hamburg

Barth, Laurent 2020 Alsace Pinot D'Alsace

Laurent Barth makes beautifully balanced Alsatian wines from his tiny organic estate in Bennwhir, near Colmar. The 2020 Pinot d'Alsace (Pinot Auxerrois with a bit of Pinot Noir) is a lovely aperitif and a perfect wine for many fish and chicken dishes. Showing pretty aromas of pear, green apple, almond and lime-flower with citrus, pear, almond, honeysuckle and herbal flavors on the palate - really pretty, round and balanced  with minerals and white fruits in the  supple finish - this is a great value and a good introduction to the beautiful wines of Laurent Barth.

Brand, Charles & Philippe NV Alsace La Chimère Riesling (17/18)

La Chimère is a solera of Riesling, from the Kefferberg vineyard, a clay and limestone site. No SO2 added. Aging has been for over 3 years. Light press of whole clusters, with fermentation and aging in foudre. We love this wine for the fresh, crispy palate, and its herbaceous character. Philippe's website advises that one can aerate the wine by opening it 2 hours before drinking, in order to liberate the aromas. Pairs well with appetizers, salty dishes, poultry and seafood.
