Tasting Notes

Hartmann is located on the Mosel, where the vineyards are steep and old. This is not Germany, it’s Luxembourg — one of the best-kept secrets for world-class sparkling wines where you find limestone soils - ideal for classically made wines. The 200-year-old Domaine Alice Hartmann is named for the valiant Madame Hartmann, who single-handedly kept the estate alive through war and lean times in the last century. The domaine has holdings in some of Luxembourg’s most treasured vineyards: the Wormeldange Koeppchen, Palmberg in Ahn, and Fels in Grevenmacher. Luxembourg’s vineyards are concentrated in the eastern part of this tiny country, where the Mosel forms a natural border with Germany. There is just one AOC: Moselle Luxembourgeois.

Staff Pick Notes

I love dates, as in the fruit from a date palm. I grew up eating them, and when we would visit Palm Springs we would all get frosty date shakes. I have been on the search for a wine that would be a match for the gooey, sweet, cinnamon/burned sugar treats. The first place one usually goes when pairing something sweet is to dessert wines. And I really should try out the Gutiérrez Colosia, Oloroso Sherry because that would probably be life changing. But this bottle of high acid bubbly is perfect as well. With its toasty and warm round notes and bright acidity it is the perfect late night treat.

Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer. Terroir,...

Riesling

Though the trend is now in the other direction, for many years Riesling was known for producing wines with little alcohol and some residual sugar - too sweet for many modern wine drinkers. Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
