WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The 2011 Alsace Grand Cru Pfingstberg Riesling is pretty matured and developed on the nose and palate. The wine is very intense and powerful, definitely tight and salty but lacks vitality and grip. This bottle is very evolved and quite tired on the caramelly finish. Somewhat short. 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.
