Description

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. Since 1997, the state has been run in its entirety according to the principles of Bio-Dynamic culture. The vines are mainly worked by hand and a significant amount of time is devoted to caring for the soil!

Tasting Note

Linden blossom and just a smidge of oil-slick-on-concrete. Much better balance than their 2016. Chewy; steely tension; but ripe greengages and lime in the middle. Could do with a bit more length. (TC) [16/20 Points, Tamlyn Currin – June 2021, jancisrobinson.com]
