Domaine Valentin Zusslin is a longtime darling of critics and wine guides (including Bettane & Desseauve and the RVF). The 16 hectare estate which is based in Orschwihr, just south of Colmar, converted to biodynamic viticulture in 1997. Wines are produced from a total of 9 different grape varieties, featuring crystalline whites and structured Pinot Noirs perfect for cellaring.
About the cuvée
This Riesling amply rewards the domain for their biodynamic certification, allowing the ferrous clay-limestone terroir to intricately express itself in the grape. The fruit undergoes a long whole-cluster pressing and the wine is left for a lengthy maturation on its fine lees in oak barrels. This is an unctuous wine with great tension, coming into its own alongside a plate of fleshy seafood. Pair with scallops.
