LUCIEN ALBRECHT Pinot Blanc “Cuvée Balthazar” 2018

(Alsace, France) $17

I happen to know you need a good white “house wine” right now. Don’t argue. You really do need one. It can sit in the fridge; chilled and waiting for nothing at all, except for you to join your latest zoom happy hour. And wouldn’t it be great if it cost about $3 a glass? Here you go. A delightful wine with mouthfuls of citrus and pear flavors. So fresh you can drink it with anything (or nothing) and be happy. Alsace excels with eminently drinkable and delicious whites like this. Cuvée Balthazar is named for the Albrecht patriarch who first settled in the Orschwihr vineyards of Alsace in 1698. (12.7% abv)
