Domaine Leon Boesch is an 11th-generation estate (certified Biodynamic since 2000) in the heart of the Ballons des Vosges nature reserve in France’s northern Alsace region.  Today Gerard and Matthew Boesch (father and son) are making some of the freshest, most interesting Alsace wines around.  This one, a full liter of joy, is so perfect for Thanksgiving.  For starters, Edelzwicker is a category in Alsace for white blends, and what is Thanksgiving other than a mish-mash of flavors and traditions? And then there is the wine itself -- aromatic, crisp, balanced with peach and peach pit, and a cleansing hit of grapefruit acidity that makes you reach for more.  Super food-friendly and versatile with the explosion of flavors on the table.
