Jean Marc Bernhard Riesling Alsace 2016
BOOM! Hey, whoa, this juice is LIT! Your palate is about to get CHARGED with pure, icy, bone-dry, skin-tinglingly bracing Alsatian brilliance! For an absolutely, utterly astounding price -- hard to believe, really...
Dry Riesling (organic to boot!) is always a joy to find -- and it is a rarity, since it is usually made in tiny amounts. The Estate dates back to the 16th century (!!) and the Bernhard family has owned it since 1802 (for context, the first incandescent light bulb was invented then) and is a super-savvy insider wine that we were supremely lucky to discover two years ago. Good thing we go to France every year to make these deals! Wow! UNHEARD-OF price today...and only a little to go around...
And...crank up the generator!! Arcs of minerally, lemon-tinged Riesling will cascade around your mouth! This is a blend from several of the Bernhard vineyards and simply an exhilarating wine in 2016, very dry (this is not a sweet Riesling) with complex layers of yellow fruits, white rose, grapefruit, crushed rocks, lemon zest and tart, and crisp apple. Terrific balance and length, too, just keeps cranking it out!! For this price??! This just begs for cheeses and creamy, luscious things like white pizzas!! MMM! We bought all we could...but it will go fast, fast fast…!
