"Domaine Jean-Philippe et Francois Becker is the latest addition to our many direct imports here at K&L and we are very pleased to have their wines. The Domaine is located in Zellenberg in one of the very few hilltop towns in Alsace and is run by three very energetic and dynamic siblings. Martine Becker is the sales force, representing the Domaine all over the world and doing so in an impressive 7 languages. She is a wealth of information and if you visit you will leave with an armful of printed articles and references of their wines from publications world wide. Brother Jean Philippe is the quiet, reflective winemaker whose shy smile and placid character hide his intense drive for quality at any cost. Finally Jean-Francois the youngest handles all the vineyard work and is a very charming and happy fellow. The Beckers can trace their winegrowing history back 13 generations to 1610 and since then have amassed 16 Hectares of vineyards with more than 4 of them Grand Cru. The 2001 Riesling Grand Cru Froehn is minerally, properly dry with high toned aromatics suggesting white flowers, lime blossom and peach. A ravishing, racy Riesling. I hope that you will enjoy this family's wines as much as we do. "

3 stars "Lemon and green apple aromas on the nose. On the palate, bone-dry and very mineral."
