Description

Expressive nose with notes of spring blossom, pear and citrus. The palate is concentrated, and at the same time fresh and pure with a beautiful salty touch. This is a dry well balanced wine, with a nice fruitiness and tension.

More Information

Dirler Cadé Pinot Reserve

The Dirler-Cadés source their Pinot Blanc for us exclusively from a block of vines dating to 1965 in the Bollenberg lieu-dit, a marl and sandstone site overlooking the town of Orschwihr. This site stands apart from the Vosges mountains, benefiting from sun, wind and elevation.

Dirler Cadé Pinot Blanc Reserve: the Producer
The Dirler family have been producing wine since 1871 in the small village of Bergholtz, near Guebwiller.
The family domaine took a further step forward in 2000 with the marriage of 5th generation Jean, son of Jean-Pierre Dirler, to Ludivine, daughter of Léon Hell-Cadé.
This took the total estate to 18 hectares, of which 42% are Grand Cru: Saering, with its clay/limestone/sandstone soils and quivering acidity; Spiegel, more sandstone/stony in its make-up, ensuring an ethereal finesse; Kessler, rich in sandy/clay/sandstone is famed for its power and ageing potential; while the sandstone/volcanic/sandy Kitterlé brims with perfumed spicy aromas on the nose and great persistence on the palate.
Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris account for over 60% of the vines, the remainder made-up of Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat, and Chasselas.While the vinification is essentially traditional, using both large oak foudres and stainless steel, it is in the vineyard where the most marked changes have taken place: since 1998 all the vines have been farmed organically and biodynamically.
Small amounts of brimstone flour and Bordeaux mixture, herbal teas of nettle, as well as concoctions of willow and horsetail are part of the biodynamic arsenal.
