    Despite a vigneron’s best efforts, pinot gris sugars tend to spike up quickly just before harvest and most grand crus have around 40-50g/l of rs. It is therefore unusual but a real pleasure to discover a balanced pinot gris grand cru with only 19g/l of rs, which helps to make it both a more harmonious and digestible wine. The sandstone base of Kessler also seems to provide the wine with a notable mineral print, and the smoky fruit, which has hints of ginger and praline make this a superb wine for gastronomy. For drinking now to 2020.

  • 267. Riesling Saering Grand Cru AC 2012

    Domaine Dirler-Cadé

    100% Riesling (13% alc, 6g/l of rs)

    Log in to view prices

    The 20 year old bio-dynamically tended vines are planted to the west of Saering near Kitterlé with a south-east aspect in a sandy marl with limestone deep below. The wine has a beautiful colour with greeny glints, and the nose is restrained and mineral. The palate is mouthwateringly pure and sapid with lemon and lime-zest, a hint of ginger and spice, and a saline note on a finish that keeps on going. For drinking now to 2020.

  • 268. Riesling Spiegel Grand Cru AC 2012

    More info

    Domaine Dirler-Cadé

    100% Riesling (13% alc, 8.4g/l of rs)

    Spiegel gives a denser more tightly wound riesling than Saering, that gradually reveals its incredible qualities. There is more clay in the vineyard here, and an easterly exposure, which according to Jean help to make this such a long-lived riesling. Anyone looking for a world class dry riesling, with a good cellar and a little patience would be amply rewarded by this wine. For drinking now to 2027+.

  • 272. Gewurztraminer Kessler Grand Cru AC 2013

    Kessler is a very well balanced and classy wine in 2013. The bouquet offers a complex mix of exotic fruit, mango and spice. There is very good depth to the fruit with a well integrated acidity and a fantastic freshness. For drinking now to 2022.

  • 276. Crémant d’Alsace AC 2014 Brut Nature

    An excellent dry sparkling wine made by the méthode champenoise. Zesty and sapid with a delicate fruit, this makes for excellent party fizz and real value alternative to champagne.
