WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING''The 2018 Auxerrois Au'Rigine is another wine from the west-facing, warm and dry Bollenberg. Vinified in foudres for at least a year, this has been a classic of the domain since forever. The wine has a delicate yet perfectly ripe Pinot aroma intertwined with very fine yeasty notes. Salty and pure on the palate but also fresh and with mineral grip on the finish, this is a medium-bodied, elegant and digestible Auxerrois with fine tannins and an intense, well-structured finish. Still young and with stunning freshness for that warm and early vintage. Tasted in May 2020." 91 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
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. In 1997 the domaine converted to biodynamic viticulture. Much of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is done by hand, in order that the grapes can express the full potential of the unique terroirs of the Domaine.
