2004 Arthur Metz RIESLING "Cuvee Anne Laure" (Alsace, France)
Here's a good value in a crisp, fresh, dry Alsace Riesling. A light, greenish gold color, this wine has a spritely nose of lemon-lime fruit and chalky minerals. Bright, fresh lemon-lime flavors carry over onto the palate, with a clean hint of steely lemon peel at the end. Medium-light body, with excellent balance. Simply a super summer sipper with shellfish by the seashore. 87. Was about $13 at Cost Plus World Marketplace on Richmond (I had gone back there for some home furnishings and they actually had a couple of interesting wines there again (finally!).
