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 estate 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.
This is an off-dry Gewürztraminer with a round and silky texture and very fine tannins that perfectly combine with mineral freshness. The Bollenberg is the hill attached to the town of Orschwihr that surrounds Domaine Zusslin. One finds all the minerality of the limestone (which is found in the soils of the hill) which was favourable to this wine, bringing freshness and balance to this rich Gewürztraminer. Spices and citrus fruits emerge from this great off-dry wine.
