Dirler Cade Pinot Gris Bux 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

There’s a touch of VA here adding lift and accenting the spicy floral character of the aromas here. There’s some apple and peach fruit and even a touch of quince on the nose but this is beautifully spicy above all else. Sweet, broad and lush in the mouth with green tea and honied accents to the core of apple and quince fruit. This is a rich, powerful if not terribly large scaled wine and one that wears it’s sugar on its sleeve. A bit simple but decidedly exuberant , this is fun to drink and then shows wonderfully floral and spiced notes on the sugar lengthened finish. Fabulously friendly wine. 91pts

The Dirler family has been producing wine since 1871 in the small Alsace village of Bergholtz, near Guebwiller. The domaine added new vineyards in 2000 with the marriage of 5th generation Jean Dirler to Ludivine Cadé, and now has 45 acres under vine. Over 40% of the holdings are Grand Cru, and include portions of: Saering, whose clay/limestone soils produce wines with rapier-like acidity; Spiegel, whose sandy/stony soil provide wines with ethereal finesse; Kessler, whose rich sandstone/clay soil makes for powerful, long-lived wines; and Kitterlé whose more volcanic soils engender highly spiced wines with great flavor persistence. Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris account for over 60% of the vines, the remainder being Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat, and Chasselas. The vinification is essentially traditional, using both large oak foudres and stainless steel, while the vineyards are farmed 100% biodynamically. Read less
