wine of the year

15879600

2007 Gerard Schueller Riesling Cuvee Particuliere.

Dry. 13%. Insane ripping acidity, chalk and yellow apple nose, and an intriguing edge of  funk (VA?) that reminded me of some much more expensive recent natural wines. A bit awkward on the finish, but c’mon, this is like 11 bucks. Fresh and happy and vigorous and pure – with time, it softened out a bit and continued to develop aromatic complexity (floral) and texture (plusher). Just stunning given the price, although this will not be for everyone. A new favorite at the household. I must explore more wine like this, and hope secured some additional gewurtz and riesling via Chambers Street Wines at the behest of my wife (Kudos CSW!). Anyone have the Pinot Blanc? Anyone out there experience other Alsatians of a similar style?
