01 Oct Great Wines of Alsace, by James Suckling
Today, we are honored and proud to share with you that our new Riesling 2009 Grand Cru Geisberg « Vignoble du Couvent de Ribeauvillé » has just been rated 98 points by James Suckling in his very new book about Great wines of Alsace and is N°1 of his TOP 100 wines of Alsace.
As you may have heard, there is a new top restaurant opening in Alsace at Villa René Lalique (villarenelalique.com), in the North of Alsace, where Mr Jean Georges Klein (3*** Michelin star ex chef of l’Arnsbourg) will be Chef and Romain Iltis (best France’s sommelier 2014 and Meilleur Ouvrier de France) the Sommelier.
Lalique (Mr Denz, owner of the Villa Lalique but also some Bordeaux Chateaux) and James Suckling are the official editors for this new book about Alsace, which is listing 650 top wines from the region, and a top 100. For those who do not know James Suckling (jamessuckling.com) : he was with Wine Spectator for many years.
James says in this book that Alsace is right now the MOST EXCITING WINE REGION OF FRANCE !
Jean Trimbach has attended a lunch with top Alsace producers on Monday 28th of September. He came back with very good news ! 98 points for Geisberg GC 2009 and N°1 OF THE TOP 100 ! (already sold out)
Frédéric Emile 2009 (97 points), Frederic Emile 2007 (97 points) and Clos Ste Hune 2009 (95 points) are also very well rated in the TOP 100.
