Most Americans avoid Riesling. We can’t really blame them — much of the Riesling on the market is mass produced, sugary, and uninteresting. But to ignore the grape entirely is to miss out on beautiful, dry, affordable whites.
Francis Muré’s Riesling has always been our favorite of his wines. Grown on the sunny hillsides of Alsace, the wine is lively, dry, floral, and refreshing. It’s a chorus of summer happiness in a glass.
Muré’s 2015 Riesling is the perfect cocktail party white. As a standalone quaffer it’s complex, dry, fruit forward, and smooth; with food it’s lively and bright, with clean, unoaked fruit and a delicious roundness. Serve it with spicy appetizers and your guests won’t soon forget the pairing.
We’re sad that Francis Muré retires this year, and we don’t know yet what we’ll be drinking in its place in 2019. But for this year we’ll live in the moment, enjoying this humble, lovely, joyful wine that has been such good company for the last 20 years.
