Marcel Deiss - Engelgarten 2019

IN STOCK

Located in Bergheim next to Ribeauvillé, in the heart of the Grand Cru area, the Marcel Deiss estate was founded in 1947. The Deiss family is a long line of winegrowers, blacksmiths and bell founders who settled in Alsace after the Thirty Years War and the attachment of the Province to France. Currently managed by Mathieu Deiss with the help of his father Jean-Michel, the estate has fought for a more qualitative production, based on the terroir rather than on cloned grape varieties, the inclination to Biodynamics, very low yields, agroforestry and Biodynamics.

The Engelgarten is one of Bergheim's best known terroirs. Its gravelly structure, the white soil and its marked hydric deficit, allows for great physiological maturity of the grapes. The vineyard, quite old, is managed with extreme severity (very short pruning, ploughing, composting). The vine suffers and produces small harvests of magnificent complexity.

Food pairing: shellfish (shrimps, scampi, crabs, oysters). Baked fish. Salty pies. Cow (Brillat-Savarin) and sheep cheeses.

Bouquet with fruity and floral notes. On the palate, the wine is fresh, dry and mineral.
