Domaine Dirler-Cade Riesling Kessler Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate: ...Overripe apricot and musk melon are fascinatingly and alluringly mingled with scents of gentian and elder flower. An opulent, silken, fruit-filled palate garners some welcome saliva-inducement from a touch of salinity. And despite the aforementioned hint of warmth, this finishes with impressive length, its sense of sweetness entirely supportive. It ought to be worth following for at least a decade.

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
