User Reviews for Domaine Marcel Deiss et Fils Gruenspiel

Winemaker's Notes:

This Bergheim terroir forms an amphitheatre that opens to the South, overlooking the great wines of Ribeauvillé, and is one of the best in the area. Its poetical name refers to the word for draughtboard and expresses the heterogeneous nature of the topsoil, which is made up of torrent deposits of sandstone, granite and sometimes gneiss, spread over a deep base of Keuper lake marl. These dominant characteristics and companion planting (Riesling, Pinot, Gewurztraminer) give the wine phenomenal length, a slightly tannic structure and power that is very lightly rounded by the hot minerality that is so specific to rolled gravel – an iron hand in a velvet glove. Complex nose of blood oranges, liquorice and spices. It is spherical and very tight in the mouth, powerful yet streamlined, with a harmony of all the flavours, which remain inseparable and carefully interlocked by the Terroir. The great keeping potential of this wine does not mean it will not appeal if served young, providing it is allowed to decant so as to be revealed to the senses. Your could for instance serve it with a lamb tagine with oranges, snail pie with parsley butter or of course a fine assortment of cheeses.
