French Wine : Domaine Mersiol Organic Alsace Riesling (2018) Organic
Located on the hillsides of Dambach-la-ville in the Alsace region of northeastern France, the Mersiol family heritage dates back to the 18th century. The first bottle hase been sold in 1946. In 1960, the Estate was expended with the marriage of Guy Mersiol to Anne-Lise Ruhlmann whose family owned an adjoining Estate. These wines are now sold as “Domaine Mersiol”.
12 hectares are now planted; 3.5 of which are classified as Grand Cru Frankstein. All wines are Estate grown, vinified and bottled. Joined by their son Stéphane in 2000, the Estate is now cultivated on an organic way (started in 2006) to extract the delicate minerality from the terroir made out of granite.
Christophe, the other son, joined the domaine in 2006 in order to develop the natioanal and international sales. Now 35% of our production is sold overseas (Japan, Belgium, Italy, Denmark, USA, Sweden...)
Their parents can now have a rest to look after their 3 grandchildren (Léna, Hylésia and Lucile).
Notes: Crisp notes of lime zest and melon with a vibrant, precise with an expressive nose of peach and flowers.
