Domaine Marcel Deiss Grasberg 2012


Planted with Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, Grasberg is located at the summit of the Grand Cru Altenberg in Bergheim, at 340m altitude and facing northeast. The soil here is very shallow, which forces the roots to dig deep into the subsoil in search of water and nourishment. A complex wine from Jurassic limestone terroir. The coolness of the site elevates the citrus acidity of limestone to a superlative, mouth-watering tang; restrains the botrytis from sweet to savoury-sweet and sour; infuses the wine with freshness; takes the sedimentary minerality to a more crystalline place.
