Grape: 100% Riesling | Biodynamic & Natural
Tasting notes: The 2020 vintage saw a change in name from “Orschwir” and now becoming “Les Chapelles”, with reference to the three chapels found on these terroirs which the riesling grapes were planted on. This new name is to create an identity as “Oschwir” as a whole.
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. 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.
Since 1997, the estate has been run in its entirety according to the principles of Bio-Dynamic culture. The vines are mainly worked by hand and a significant amount of time is devoted to caring for the soil.
Awarded the Robert Parker Green emblem in July 2021.
