K&L Notes

To call André Ostertag a revolutionary winemaker is to tell just half the story. He is a pioneer, certainly, but also an ardent environmentalist (as demonstrated in both his wine and his sculpture, another passion). He rejects formulaic, scientifically engineered wines, and since going biodynamic in 1997, has been an active member of the natural farming community. *Biodynamic*

    This is a stunning wine. The nose is subtle, pretty and lightly floral. In the mouth it is complex and pure with honey - like flavors that are balanced out with a hint of minerals. The wine is dry and soft. A perfect selection for fans of dry Rieslings.

    The wines of Andre Ostertag are some of my favorite in the store and I'm always very happy when we are able to bring them in. Ostertag has rejected the official classifications of the A.O.C. and instead created his own categories. The Les Jardins is part of his "vins de fruit" wines and are made to express varietal character and the taste of the grapes themselves rather than expressing a single vineyard site and the terroir from which the grapes came. The Les Jardins is fermented dry lending it versatility at the dining table. They're meant to be drunk young and fresh. I drank this over the course of two nights, each with different seafood based meals and it was fantastic. Crisp and intensely mineral, with notes of lime/lime leaf, white flowers and under ripe nectarine, this wine is beautifully aromatic and a natural match for lighter fare.
