Vin de France, L'Arche, Marcel Deiss

  • Provenance: Alsace
  • Domain: Marcel Deiss
  • Grape variety(ies): Complantation de 60 cépages alsaciens oubliés, non autorisés dans l'appellation Alsace.
  • On-call time: 10 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13.5%
At a time of the Anthropocene, when greedy mankind is destroying nature, it seems essential to the estate to bring together in an Ark the 60 forgotten Alsatian grape varieties and all the legitimate floral biodiversity abandoned in favour of industrialisation. This cuvée symbolises our militant commitment to preserving this memory, which is still under threat from the conformism and standardisation of industrial agriculture. Ideally, aerate for three hours before serving this great, highly complex dry white wine. Serve at 8°-10°C.

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.
