Domaine Dirler-Cade Riesling Saering Grand Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; Wine Advocate wrote this on the 2009 vintage: Sage, mint, and citrus rind pungency in the nose as well as considerable cut on the rather full palate... are very much in keeping with the personality of the vintage at this address... there is some sense of succulence to the black currant-tinged, pungently herbal (rather Sauvignon-like) palate impression, as well as an undeniably impressive grip and a touch of welcome, saliva-inducing salinity...Plan on drinking this over the next 4-6 years.

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
