Winery: "After an old man on his deathbed entrusted him with one of Alsace’s gems, the Schoenenbourg vineyard, Jean-Michel Deiss found that it was co-planted to a field blend, instead of any single variety. He quickly realized that this was the missing link in his quest for terroir expression and replanted every one of his top vineyards to such blends. Since taking over the domaine in 1981, he has become one of the unquestionable qualitative leaders of the region, as well as a leading voice for biodynamic farming, which he installed at the domaine in 1988. With his son Mathieu taking over much of the day to day responsibility in 2015, the domaine is reaching dizzying new heights with absolutely stunning wines that show off the terroir of the rolling hills of Bergheim.
A gorgeously complex and mineral co-planted field blend from one of the masters of Alsace. The wine shows pure and fresh aromas/ flavors of Meyer lemon, seductive spices, nectarine, and fresh citrus fruits. It is refined and delicate, with a wonderful tension binding its core. A beautfiully complete white wine."
