Zind Humbrecht Riesling Brand Vendage Tardive

Zind Humbrecht Riesling Brand Vendage Tardive
Alsace 2006 $55

Champagne is a great special occasion wine, but it’s a little bit easy no? The problem with bubbles is that it’s expensive so to snag a bottle you’re looking at $75 minimum, a price most consumer’s rarely consider dropping on a bottle of table wine. But why not? Take this excellent bottling from one of Alsace’s premier vintners. At $55 it’s not cheap but it’s about $20 less an ubiquitous bottle of Veuve Cliquot and you’ll be blown away by it’s honey and citrus notes cradled in a bracing acidity.
