2016 Louis Hauller La Cave du Tonnelier Alsatian Riesling 1.0 Liter
You just have to face it. You’re a leader in wine drinking. And you’re about to take down a liter. Of Riesling.
Admit it, dear Leader. Riesling is probably the greatest white wine on earth. A wine capable of a scintillating array of aromas, of vivid minerality, of bracing crispness, of a depth of flavor, and of a breadth of texture unmatched by any other grape. And Riesling is, of course, a magical food pairing wine.
And now, dear Leader, be bold and accompany us l to the blissful Elysium of Dry Alsatian Riesling.
That’s right, I said DRY. All wines can be made sweet or dry. It’s really the vintner’s choice. Riesling is famous for being made sweet, but nowadays most are DRY. Including Louis Hauller La Cave du Tonnelier Alsatian Riesling.And dry isn’t all it is.
Gorgeous aromas of citrus blossom, bosc pear, passion fruit, ginger spice and blood orange zest burst from the glass.This is part of what makes Riesling such dazzling summer enjoyment —the infinite variety of aromas you can never tire of. Every time you go back to the glass, they’re evolving like a delicious symphony.
And the qualities of Riesling, and particularly those of this Riesling, just get better. Ever tailgated? Of course you have. Lots of sausage, cheese curds, smoked pork, Tart Flambée, Choucroute Garnie and braised cabbage with black truffles.. Delicious! (OK, those last three are Alsatian specialities.) And what do you drink with those grilled brats topped with grilled cheese curds and served on a buttered pretzel bun?That, dear Leader, is where Alsatian Riesling comes in. It’s the perfect pairing for any summer festival of sausage, cheese or pork. Lighter on the palate and the tummy than any bottle of any beer.
There you have it. For summer fun, Louis Hauller’s Alsatian Riesling is absolutely unmatched. Many who receive this email will simply click delete because it’s about Riesling. But you, you’re a leader, and for every leader, there are great rewards.
