Vintages Wine Picks June 26, 2010

White Wine

Willy Gisselbrecht Riesling 2007, A.C., Alsace, France: Vintages Wine Panel: This fine Riesling’s reputation precedes it. The wine took home a Silver Medal at Grand Concours des Vins d’Alsace de Colmar 2008. Brimming with ripe citrus fruit, bright acidity and a lovely claystone minerality. My note: Love it! Mouth-watering (drenching) acidity with lime fruit, flint, mineral depth. Phenomenal. Pair with: shellfish, lemon grass chicken. 169011 12% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 92/100.

Merlot 2006, V.Q.A., Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada: A lovely, rich and full-bodied Merlot that’s the opposite of boring (Miles). Fleshy dark plums and berries. Love it! Drink: 2010-2015. 169961 14% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 89/100. June 26, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
