Dry. Francis Muré’s Alsatian Riesling has long been one of our most popular wines. We’ve used this wine to cure dozens of tasters of their “Riesling fear” — it’s bone-dry, crisp, and as refreshing as a Sancerre or Chablis. There’s plenty of sweet, heavy, uninteresting Riesling around, but after one taste of this and you’ll want to reexamine the grape.
Francis Muré makes delicious wines is his Alsatian hill town of Westhalten. The charming narrow streets are lined with flower boxes, and when Muré steals away from his vines or his cellar it’s to make his own delicious duck confit or smoke his own local brook trout. He’s an artisan in every way, and his wines are a perfect expression of their bucolic origin.
Fresh. Muré’s Riesling is a perfect match for the summer heat. The nose is bright and floral, with notes of lime, mango, and spring flowers. The mouth is dry and crisp, with a wonderfully lively mouthfeel — there’s plenty of rich, mouthfilling fruit, balanced by a bright line of citrus and minerals.
We drink Muré’s Riesling year round — it pairs beautifully with Asian cuisine, particularly those with a bit of spice. But in the summer, it’s almost a necessity. For a cocktail party or outdoor barbecue, there’s little more refreshing than a chilled glass of this Riesling. Just don’t tell your guests what grape it is until they’ve tried it.
