Last year, I was shut out from getting some of her “1er cru” Lutzeltal Sylvaner, as I was too slow to the punch, and there is very very little made. I do not intend to suffer the same fate this year….From Agathe’s pet favorite grape, this is simply an awesome expression of the variety, as well as its limestone origins. The floral, mineral, and pale stone fruit charms of the variety find wonderfully caressing texture and tonic freshness, with the same remarkable house-touch sense of purity that goes on forever…..an absolute no brainer and a insanely good buy on the world stage. I gave this a little *, Amber gave it a little “heart”. I’m tellin’ ‘ya, the lady simply doesn’t miss the mark….!!!!
“Luminous straw-yellow. White flowers, chamomile and stone fruit on the perfumed nose. Clean and fresh on entry, then more glyceral, showing sneaky concentration and size to the quince and white stone fruit flavors. This lovely wine is both rich and round and doesn’t quite taste completely dry, but in fact it has only 5 g/L residual sugar with 5.7 total acidity, and the latter masks the sugar’s presence very effectively. The finish is bright, long and creamy. Bursin is a recognized master of the Sylvaner variety; in her hands, it gives wines that are better than many Rieslings and Pinot Gris from other producers.” 91 Ian D’Agata for the 2015, NOT THE 2017 OFFERED HERE.
