You might be surprised to learn that some of France's richest, roundest wines come from one of its northernmost regions: Alsace.
Alsace is also home to a handful of our most acclaimed producers—but that won't be much of a surprise after you get a chance to taste their wines for yourself at this weekend's tasting and sale.
Join us this Saturday from noon to 4pm as we feature six wines from three Alsace winemakers whose cuvées can be found on awards (and wine) lists well beyond their tiny corner of France: Bernard Schoffit, Henry Fuchs, and the venerable Albert Mann!
If you're not yet familiar with this talented trio of producers, you're in for a treat this weekend.
Bernard Schoffit is a brilliant winemaker, and a pioneer in Alsace's greatest Grand Cru, Rangen de Thann.
Schoffit is just starting to gain the recognition he deserves—Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate has called him "one of Alsace's newest stars."
Meanwhile, Henry Fuchs has mastered two of Alsace's most esteemed terroirs.
His Kirchberg cuvées more than live up to the exacting standards of the Grand Cru. And his Hagel wines are wonderfully expressive of the vineyard's granite terroir that Riesling works so well with.
Finally, the pure, terroir-driven, meticulously balanced wines of Domaine Albert Mann have been the envy of the region's winemakers for some time.
The estate has been rated by The Wine Advocate in the top tier of Alsace producers, and has received a coveted Three-Star Rating in the Revue du Vin de France.
We'll be pouring 6 wines this weekend (2 from each producer), including 3 90+-point cuvées you definitely won't want to miss. Click here for more details, including tasting notes and pricing!
