Wine: There's more to Alsace than gewürztraminer (Fiona Beckett, The Guardian, 8th July 2011)

If you enjoy the drier styles of Alsace wine - and I do - it pays to experiment with the other varieties the region has to offer.
Dry riesling, however, is Alsace's great glory. Unfortunately, grand cru wines are pricey over here, but I found a brilliant bargain in the

Luss Riesling 2008 (£13.40, Vine Trail,; 12.5% abv),

a pure, delicately fruity riesling from biodynamic producer Léon Boesch that I think bears comparison with a grand cru. It's lovely with white fish in a creamy sauce, as they have it in Alsace.
