2014 Alsace Les Elements Riesling (Best Buy) Jean-Christophe Bott converted the 80 parcels of his family's estate to biodynamics in 2002. His careful farming shows in this simple domaine wine that performs far beyond its price. It takes riesling in an unexpected direction, with intense lemon-yellow fruit and bright acidity well padded by savory green tea and lobster broth flavors. Then the finish opens toward a note that's almost strawberry in its red hue. Pour it with gingery Cantonese lobster. —Joshua Greene
