This is a vintage that will seduce you with its explosive nose of ripe and delicate fruits. The palate is characterized by a beautiful balance, silky and full with a fine and chiselled acidity. The notes of red fruits are present and leave you on a long finish. The woody notes are intentionally very light because a great wine must express the terroir, the vintage, the grape variety and the work of the winemaker.

About The Winery
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.
Marie Zusslin and Jean Paul Zusslin (sister and brother) have managed the company since 2000. 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.
