Wine

Altenberg de Bergheim, Grand Cru, Domaine Marcel Deiss, 75cl

£58.50

A blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat, with around 100g/L of residual sugar.
The Altenberg de Bergheim is located in the heart of the geological faults fields of Ribeauville where hard limestone and Jurassic Lias marls meet each other. These abundant formations in fossils form a poor clay-limestone soil, red (ferruginous), and rich in rock limestone, where the vines must dive deeper to find their energy.


The micro-climate of Altenberg, resulting from its fully southern exposure, its distance from the forehead of Vosges and its isolated position facing the Plain Rhénane, this Grand Cru is terribly hot, dry and almost overexposed. The maturities of grapes, often amplified by the noble rot, are non-standard and they impose the domination of terroir on the cepages co-planted.

  Expert reviews

Candied citrus, orange liqueur and marmalade, peach preserves, nut paste, honey, and vanilla, along with doughy richness and buttery texture give this wine a patisserie character, if one simply imagines dustings of chalk dust instead of flour. It finishes with remarkable lift and elegance for a wine of such sheer richness.
94/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
