|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Riesling|
The Deiss 2011 Langenberg features ripe peach and muskmelon accompanied by piquancy of peach kernel and phenolic bite of citrus rind and chewy fruit skins, as befits a wine dominated by Pinots and Muscat. Here is one of those periodic instances where Deiss maintains (of a wine that has been in bottle for less than a couple of years) that it is going through an inevitable reductive phase indicative of long-term stamina. But there is imposingly juicy persistence as well as sense of structure here, and when the wine is reassessed in another year or two it should reveal itself as even more impressive, as well as worth holding through at least 2020.

Domaine Marcel Deiss: Full Wine List and Profile
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.
