Rich and smoky, with notes of dried mint and marjoram accenting flavors of honeyed apricot, candied orange peel, beeswax, lemon curd and ground spices. Lush and silky, but offering fine balance thanks to well-cut, lively acidity, with a long, smoke-tinged, minerally finish. Roughly 70 percent Riesling, with Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Muscat. Drink now through 2020.

From a mosaic of small parcels in this gypsum-rich Grand Cru planted in the 1930s to Pinot Gris, Riesling (both “red” or “black” variants!), Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Sylvaner, Deiss’ 2007 Schoenenbourg smells bittersweetly of iris, freesia, fennel pollen, crystallized ginger, and candied orange rind. Hugely rich and carrying a load of sugar, it nevertheless displays uncanny transparency to inner-mouth floral nuances, subtle spices, and alkaline, chalky mineral notes. This shows less finishing sweetness than the 2006 and displays kaleidoscopic flavor interaction. Expect it to dazzle for the next quarter century. Drink: 2010 - 2035
95/100 (Apr 2010)


Jean-Michel Deiss's wines are without doubt among the most exciting of the region. His experimental field blends in the wines he likes to call 'level of Premier Cru' are immensely impressive and worth experimenting with - they each have a definite and unique character, and are some of the most fascinating white wines in the world. Deiss may be a contrary character himself, not always in tune with other producers in the area, but the quality in the wines really does speak for what he has achieved. Biodynamic.
