A Bastian of sanity

Mathis Bastian 2008 Riesling “Grand Premier Cru” Wellenstein (Luxembourg) – Bright and vibrant. Crisp acidity, not overly sharpened, with flaky limestone minerality and ripe lemon flavors. Pretty impressive, and by a fair margin the best Luxembourgeois wine I’ve tasted. (3/11)

The Wormeldange turns

[bottle]Clos des Rochers 2006 Wormeldange Nusssbaum Auxerrois “Grand Premier Cru” (Luxembourg) – Borg pear, more metallic than organic, with a slash of turmeric and coriander. Fair length, good structure, and of quite surprising origin. Worth a second look. (7/08)
