Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A light-bodied Riesling from Alsace, France that has strong aromas of soft citrus with well-balanced acidity on the palate that keeps freshness to a sweeter finish. This wine is easy sipping and will pair well with summer salads and appetizers like soft cheeses and artisanal crackers.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Exuberant nose split between stone fruit and tropical fruits, followed by minerality, floral, and mandarin orange. The minerality really jumps on the dry, balanced, and textured palate. 12 grams of residual sugar are expertly hidden by racy acidity and medium body. Pretty floral notes on the finish, especially citrus blossom. A superb food wine thanks to high acidity, a touch of sweetness, and a medium body. Match with a classic Alsatian soup of sauerkraut, potato, pork, and beans.
Ruhlmann Coteau Du Blettig 2016 Riesling is produced from Old Vines Riesling wine grapes. Fresh with soft orange, lime and flinty mineral aromas on the nose, Off-dry and mouth-watering with bright orange, lime, fresh apple, pear and stony mineral flavours on the palate. So enjoyable now. Pair with an onion tarte or saffron potato cakes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
