Wine Region: Alsace - Bollenberg - France
Tasting notes: This is an off-dry Gewürztraminer with a round and silky texture and very fine tannins that perfectly combine with mineral freshness. The Bollenberg is the hill attached to the town of Orschwihr that surrounds Domaine Zusslin. One finds all the minerality of the limestone (which is found in the soils of the hill) which was favourable to this wine, bringing freshness and balance to this rich Gewürztraminer. Spices and citrus fruits emerge from this great off-dry wine.
About the winery: Marie Zusslin and her brother, Jean-Paul, began working alongside their father, Jean-Marie, and grandfather, Valentin, in 2000. For ten years the three generations worked together in the same house/winery established by their ancestors in 1671.
Today, Marie and Jean-Paul share the lead responsibilities in the cellar and the vineyard following the holistic approach established by their father, whom began practicing biodynamic farming in 1997.
The Zusslins farm a number of terroirs close to their home village of Orschwihr: Clos Liebenberg, Bollenberg, and Pfingstberg. Their concern for nature creates beautiful wines full of vitality.
