Vineyard Engelgarten

Bright straw. Fresh apple, lime, jasmine and minerals on the very Mosel-like nose. Fresh and energetic in the mouth, showing good focus to the bright orchard fruit and citrus peel flavors. Lovely wine. Mathieu Deiss told me that the Engelgarten is a difficult terroir, especially when it gets hot; as the soils are also nitrogen-rich, vigor needs to be reined in. Based on a taste of this wine, I’d say he’s succeeding admirably.

Very pale. Light, delicate nose. Rather powdery texture. Light and delicate. Feather light! Long. Vibrato.


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.
