  • Sweet and Sauer - the two faces of Alsace wine

    It's been almost 5 years since John last organised a wine tasting for clients and contacts, and 4 years since he started his business v-lex. And being married to a lovely lady from Alsace, picking a theme was easy. The tasting took place on Thursday 26 September at St. Stephen Walbrook church in the heart of the City. Designed by Christopher Wren shortly after the Great Fire, the church provided a magnificent backdrop for John and his 30 guests to taste wines from this quiet corner of North East France. Passing backwards and forwards between Germany and France during the last 150 years, Alsace is as much German as it is French. It would be easy to forget that you were in France, the country of Voltaire and cheese eating surrender monkeys, with village names like Munster and Pfaffenheim. The wines from producers like Trimbach and Rene Mure are perfect with Asian food or drunk on their own as an aperitif. John alreadyhas plans for next September's tasting, which will focus on the red and white wines of the Rhone valley.
