 “The 2015 Pinot Noir Bollenberg Harmonie is intense and ripe on the very deep and generous yet also fine and mineral nose that exhibits plum, cinnamon, mocha and even red berry (strawberry) aromas, which are intertwined with the purity, finesse and freshness of the iron-loaded limestone soils of the Bollenberg. Silky textured and remarkably fresh on the palate, this is a full-bodied and dense yet fresh and finessed Pinot with great tension and surprising purity and elegance for 2015. In fact, the Harmonie unites the purity and freshness of the Luft parcel with the power and warmth of the Neuberg plot, which have been separated for the 2016 and for all of the following vintages. This is a gorgeous, intense and textured Pinot Noir with a fresh and sustainable finish that again refers to wild strawberry notes in the aftertaste. The 2015 is a vibrant and energetic highlight in the glorious Harmonie history. Tasted October 2018. 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.
