Domaine Marcel Deiss Gewurtztraminer Vin d'Alsace 2007

Member Review by ergodos:

A tad sweet. Starting to develop that nice gasoline type smell which I love on those aged Alsatian Rieslings. Good body, nice and full. Maybe this one could use a few more years? I went back to this one after two days of being open in the fridge and it was showing way better. Make sure you don't over-chill this one.

The extreme variation in conditions of production at the domaine have led Jean-Michel DEISS to seek to express in each wine the three factors that make a wine complete : the grape variety, the vintage and the terroir. The greater the wine, the more the gustatory characteristics linked to the soil take the place of the typicity linked to grape variety or vintage. When speaking of terroir, the following have to be taken into consideration : geology, pedology, climate and microclimate, technical exploitation of the character of the soil, microfauna and flor, and the traditional methods and techniques used to produce wines A fascination with medieval history and a desire to produce world class Vins de Garde were the impetus behind Jean-Michel DEISS quest for excellence from his Alsace vineyards. His commitment and personal integrity have led him to the conclusion that, as in most other parts of France, it is the dedicated nurturing of vines in specific terroirs which produces wines of unique distinction, originality, and authenticity. His efforts have focused on producing complexity and concentration, and the results fall into three broad categories: Vins de Fruits :varietally labelled wines from a single designated commune or village Vins de terroirs : field blends of varietals designated, indeed dominated, by their terroir and site and soil specificity, which he refers to as his Premiers Crus and the AOC-recognized Grands Crus Vins de temps : and classic late harvest wines with the Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles designations Read less
