Made from a blend of 13 Alsatian varieties that are co-planted and then co-fermented, a process that the Deiss family thinks best expresses the terroir for each parcel or region. Amazing richness on the nose here. Exploding with peaches, apricots that stand right alongside some sexy floral and baking spice. Weighty in the mouth, just luscious and curvy with a gorgeous snap of fresh cut herbs and citrus rind on the finish.  

Marcel Deiss is among the top three of the most distinguished wine producers in Alsace. He is also a maverick. When he took control of the domain he replanted all of this vineyards to field blends - this had been the norm, but scrapped to single varieties years before with the thinking that these blends were of lower quality. Not so!! He is now battling the grand cru and premier cru system in Alsace - thinking they are too big - as well as attempting to get new varietals authorized.

Rich and explosive on the nose with peaches, apricots, white flowers and baking spices. The palate is weighty, luscious and round with a flash of fresh herbs and citrus. Pair with pork and sauerkraut, roasted chicken, Thai food.
