From an exceptional terroir, this wine is a masterpiece! A marvellous but still secret breed, it shows a phenomenal richness of constitution and concentration. Its balance is miraculous, built entirely around an acidic, bitter (very noble) and mineral force that perfectly integrates the residual sugars. Guide Vert RVF : 18.5/20

Viticulture

The Schoenenbourg, renowned since the Middle Ages, is the jewel in the crown of the Riquewihr vineyard. It is distinguished by its topography (south-facing, at the bottom of the valley, steep slope) and its very special geology: iridescent and gypseous marl from the Keuper, more or less mixed and covered by scattered Vosges sandstone. The combination of a light, non-sticky soil and a clay subsoil, rich in fertilizing elements, with good water retention, undoubtedly explains the dominant character of the terroir on the vine.

Oenology

Vinification and maturation in large tuns, on fine lees.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Seafood (lobster, lobster), poulard, capon. After ten years of ageing: noble fish and caviar.

Domain
The Deiss estate is located in Bergheim, a village nestled in the heart of Alsace wine country. Born into a family of winegrowers who had been living in Bergheim since 1744, Marcel Deiss chose the profession of arms at the age of 18 and left his native land. Returning to his homeland after the Second World War, he rediscovered his roots and developed his small landholding into a dynamic winegrowing business. Today, run by Jean-Michel and Mathieu Deiss, the estate covers 27 hectares spread over 9 communes and 20 kilometres. The extreme variety of the vineyard (220 plots) has led to a search for the exact balance between the affirmation of the place, the expression of the vintage and the framework of the grape variety for each vintage. The interaction between these factors makes it possible to distinguish the so-called "terroir" vintages: here the place alone expresses its mark, dominating the other contingencies. It determines the style, the exact personality, the very physiognomy of the wine. For the Grands Crus, the indication of the grape variety is often superfluous as the influence of the origin is so strong on its usual expression. This effort, combined with high planting densities (8,000 to 12,000 vines/hectare), makes it possible to express all the fine nuances of the place, its temperament, its deep singularity. According to Jean-Michel Deiss, planting a single grape...
