Marcel Deiss Burlenberg 2003

Member Review by stovesize:

This is a very interesting Pinot Noir. I typically like new world Pinot's, but i was a big fan of this Alsacen wine. The nose for this wine made me curl when i smelled it. I thought it smelled like funky dirt and my friend thought it smelled like old cheese. The taste was totally different. It had an earthy taste, but it was also very complex an interesting. I had it at a tasting and then at dinner afterwards. We had meat for dinner and the wine complimented the pork and beef very well. It is a very deep, thick looking wine. My understanding of the grower is that he pays more attention to the terroir (land) then the grape type. The price was little on the high side, but I really enjoyed the complexity of the wine. I will buy it gain if i can find it (seems to be sold out almost everywhere).

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
