Tasting note

2023 Christmas wines

For this year’s Christmas, I picked four wines to pair with a down to earth broth fondue. For aperitif, we started with a champagne by Henri Giraud. From there we went to Burgundy, then Bordeaux, and ended up at the Saar in Germany. Originally, I’d chosen a 1996 Sauternes to wrap things up but we decided to keep that bottle for another time. 2026 Christmas, perhaps?

Pale lemon yellow. Clean bouquet, medium intensity. Mandarins, lemon, peach, green apples, sweet grapes. Very fruity and open in style. On the palate, acidity is high to keep the sweetness in balance. Lean body on low alcohol. Long finish with lasting yellow fruits. Animating and savoury, this classic Riesling style is good both as aperitif and as digestif.

Drink through 2028.
