From the stellar vineyard site Bollenberg, the Zusslin’s newly arrived Sylvaner comes close to redefining the standard of Sylvaner with a De Niro Mean Streets-like intensity and savory essence that beguiles. Parts of the vines are now fifty years old - so some distinguished dirt is involved in this bottle.
Tasting notes: Mineral expression with freshness and balanced of the richness of the Gewurztraminer. Almost dry on the palate with spices and citrus notes.
Established in 1691 by M. Jodocus CISLE (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin ZUSSLIN is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family who are following in the footsteps of their forbears. The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg.
Since 1997, the estate has been run in its entirety according to the principles of Bio-Dynamic culture. The vines are mainly worked by hand and a significant amount of time is devoted to caring for the soil.
Awarded the Robert Parker Green emblem in July 2021.
