2006 Pierre Sparr Riesling Reserve (France, Alsace, Alsace AOC)

Alsace, France, Riesling, White Wine


Another winner. Although I wasn’t completely enamored with a decent Sparr Gewuerz recently, this wine really showed well. It was bone-dry, but pulled the dryness off with nice fruit and without being too alcoholic (which is a feature I have noticed in many German whites that are fully dry). Cut flowers, apple and pear, minerals, and some cur grass on the palate. Finishes very well. Clearly a very good dry Riesling that is in a style I can absolutely recommend.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
