There are two different bottlings: A non-vintage blend (2010 and 2011) and a 2012 and both priced at $16. They have aged slowly and are in a fantastic spot. You can learn more about them each on the links below. I also decided to offer a specially discounted mixed case in order to get people to try both. I have my favorite and Tom has his. It’s a close horse-race. I figured that once you taste them, you’d want more anyway and then they would be sold out…You can also order multiple mixed cases at this price and share the wealth with friends.
Essentially, this is Tom Klassen’s project ‘Hibou de Nuit,’ a dry-Alsatian style wine. I had a very small role in the project as a den-mother and janitor when either one was needed. I did talk Tom into blending the 2010 and 2011 vintages as the 2010 from a warm year was opulent but lacked verve while the 2011 was all about verve but needed a bit more allure. It was a heavenly match. The 2012 shows a bit more youth and is somewhat more in line with a dry-Alsatian style that you may have encountered somewhere along the way, with an added level of interest. These are not simple, one-note quaffers and I delighted to introduce you to them.
