WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"The 2016 Sylvaner Bollenberg is from a parcel bought in 2013 that was immediately converted to biodynamic farming. After the excellent 2014 (which should be enjoyed now), the 2016 was yielded like a grand cru with just 35 hectoliters per hectare and aged in a large foudre for two years. The wine opens with a delicate nose of white fruits and some flinty notes. Delicate and pure on the palate, this is an elegant, refined and structured Sylvaner with a playful finish and clear, elegant fruit. Zusslin is one of the rare estates in Alsace that is still producing ambitious Sylvaners with class and style." 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.
