Alsace Wine

An old ruse of the Yapp Brothers on tour is to cross-reference the Michelin Guide (for epicurean cognition) and the Rough Guide (for budgetary constraint) and select restaurants that fall into the intersection of the resultant Venn diagram. Some years ago on a fact finding trip to Alsace we deployed just such an M.O. in Colmar and ended up dining in the warmly recommended Rendez-Vous des Chasseurs. It was a disaster. We sat in splendid isolation in a vast dining room being fawned over by an over attentive front of house brigade who wouldn’t leave us alone. What really grated is that we could hear peals of jolly laughter from the jam-packed hostelry next door. Well, you live and you learn and these days we have Trip Advisor to minimise such risks.

The following morning we made one of our infrequent visits to Charles Schléret at his cellars in Turckheim and he talked us through his range of wines with a boyish enthusiasm that belied the fact that he is well past typical retirement age. We hope Charles continues to defer any thoughts of retirement for the foreseeable future as his wines have served us well over the last 4 decades and enjoy a fiercely loyal following on these shores.
