Tasting Note

Vineyard profile

Domaine Mélanie Pfister farms forty parcels totaling ten hectares (twenty-five acres) of vines, twenty-five percent of which is in Riesling. As a winemaker, Pfister is almost completely unknown compared to Pierre Trimbach in Ribeauville, and her top dry wine, the Riesling Grand Cru Engelberg costs just one tenth of what Trimbach's Clos Ste. Hune does. However, just like Trimbach she is also committed to properly dry wines and pursues a super-clean and super-straight style of wine with a strong mineral character that's designed for long-ageing. So this style is obviously not an accident in Alsace, but something which fits the climate, geology and the gastronomic culture of the region. Melanie's winemaking experience at Domaine Zind-Humbrecht, Château Cheval Blanc, Château D'Yquem, MŽo-Camuzet and Craggy Range all come together in her delicious wines! A field blend of traditional local varities. Medium-bodied and lush with stone fruit flavours and a fresh acidity.
