Christophe Lindenlaub, Le White Kiki
This is super lively and a joy to drink, lightly perfumed and it's like drinking liquid tutti frutti for grown ups. A litre isn’t enough!
Grapes: Gewurztraminer & Riesling
Place: Alsace, France
The Lindenlaub family has been making wine in the northern Alsace town of Dorlisheim for over 200 years, with Christophe the latest in line to take over the historic domaine. Over the past decade he has worked tirelessly to convert their 12ha to organics and since 2012 has been making some of the most standout zero-addition wines of the region. The focus has been to harness the potential of these sites, and so, as well as a move away from chemical intervention in the vineyard and cellar, Christophe has elected to use mainly stainless steel for elevage as a means to further define the freshness and precision in the wines. Much like their maker, each cuvée bursts with energy. At the core of every one is a strong line of acidity underpinned by a deep salinity on the palate - you could call this Christophe’s trademark. Even the more aromatic varieties posses the same quality, giving exceptional length and refreshment.
