Charles Baur "Emotion" Cremant d'Alsace Brut Top Pick!
Charles Baur "Emotion" Cremant d'Alsace Brut

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "While this is a nonvintage wine, it is still very young and will benefit from time in bottle. That will allow the rich apple and crisp lemon flavors to round out, calming the intense acidity. The potential of this rich wine is considerable." (12/2014) K&L Notes: Made up of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Blanc, with zero dosage, this pretty sparkling has very classy and feminine aromatics and is very nicely textured along the palate, with classic Chardonnay character that's lightened up on the finish by the small addition of Pinot Blanc and a vibrant mineral quality.

2009 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace Top Pick!
2009 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace

97 points James Suckling: "This is so open and sexy with blood orange, minerals, flint and stone. Full-bodied and tangy, plus sliced lemon, lime and white peach. Salty with limestone too. Amazing." (9/2015) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A benchmark for Alsace Riesling, Cuvée Frédéric Emile is released only as it approaches maturity, and this 2009 is just getting there now. With kerosene aromas and tight, intensely zesty and mineral flavors, it shows the Trimbach approach—that Riesling needs to be bone dry. It's impressive now, but will be even better from 2016.

Wine Enthusiast: "Roses, peaches and apricots all swing in the unctuous richness of this plush Gewurztraminer. They are countered by some freshness but this is certainly on the plumper side. It will be the perfect match for ripe, soft cheeses.

Honey and lemon - the honey giving it a suggestion of maturity that is contradicted by the SO2 still in evidence. There's a hint of sweetness on the finish but the overall balance is good.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From low-yielding younger vines in '1er' and Grand Cru sites in Bergheim (Keuper marl and Jurassic limestone soils) the semi-dry 2012 Berckem is only the second vintage of this complantation of 13 Alsatian grape varieties and, according to Jean-Michel Deiss, it is 'richer and broader' than the 2011, which I haven't tasted. The wine is is super ripe, intense, and aromatic on nose and palate, but very fine at the same time.

2010 Louis Sipp Osterberg Riesling Grand Cru Alsace

Racy and ripe, this wine represents a beautiful yin-yang of fruity aromatics on the nose and tension on the palate. Pack it for a picnic with smoked salmon and goat cheese for pure delight. It was organically grown on stony clay slopes in the Ribeauvillé region of Alsace. Despite difficult weather, the 2010 vintage ultimately produced fresh, high-quality wines (but in lower quantities, so snatch them up while you can!). Silver medal winner in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2013.

The juicy palate is perked up by a lively cilantro note at the back. A lively mineral tang extends the finish. This vintage strikes me as especially taut and crystalline. The 40-year-old Sylvaner vines at Weinbach, located within the Clos des Capucins, yield less than 45 hectoliters per hectare. This refined, delicate wine is less famous than Weinbach’s other bottlings but it rarely disappoints. (ID)" (2/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sylvaner makes only 4% of the ...Read More »

2013 Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace

Classic style. Try this to understand what dry gewurz is." (9/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powdery, creamy notes of rose, orange and mandarin oil unite in a concentrated, punchy palate that focuses on taste rather than aroma. This is rounded and rich with an immensely concentrated phenolic vein that lends structure and poise. The finish is lasting but demure.

Finishes clean and long, with serious peppery bite. 'I sell ten times as much abroad as I do in France,' Olivier Humbrecht told me, a consequence of the fact that this is a classically dry wine (in France, they like their Gewürztraminers on the sweet side).
