M. Chapoutier Schieferkopf Saint-Jacques Riesling 2012

$38

Riesling DRY, FULL-BODIED, CITRUS, NUTTY, PINEAPPLE, SPICE, NEUTRAL OAK In yet another fabulous endeavor by the winemakers of M. Chapoutier, this is a classic Alsace expression of aged riesling. Rich golden hues are accentuated by nutty notes with citrus, pineapple, and spice. Lively acidity and an almost saline finish pair this well with big meals.

If you’ve ever blown up a beach ball while eating lemon custard and drinking sparkling mineral water then you’ve already tasted this wine.

Alsace’s Domaine Schieferkopf is Michel Chapoutier’s joint venture with four friends devoted to producing white wine from the Rhine Valley. It’s the only venture where Chapoutier works with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Sylvaner. Schieferkopf means slate topped and its vineyards are situated on steep slopes near the village of Bernardvillé and on the only strip of blue schist in Alsace. Like all Chapoutier estates, it is managed under organic and biodynamic principles. If Robert Parker liked rocks more than fruit he would call the 2012 Via Saint-Jacques Riesling a high octane, full throttle, hedonistic, ROCK-bomb. Rocks for days and charged with acidity. Beyond the rocks, there’s smoke, pineapple, lime, citrus peel, peach skin, and some secondary almond. Another excellent example of dry Riesling and one that would appeal to many a Sauvignon Blanc drinker. I genuinely feel bad for all those people who don’t drink Riesling because they still think it’s only a sweet wine.
