For my money, the best use of pinot blanc is by the biodynamic wizard Jean-Michel Deiss, who combines it with a fruit salad of other varieties in his sublimely fluent, mineral Alsace blend. David Williams, The Observer (Nov 2016)

Smells of gum (for sticking rather than chewing). Very racy and floral with a deep undertow. So much more flavour than the average Alsace! Drinking range: 2016 - 2018 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - (Sep 2016)

Racy, expressive, dry white from one Alsace's pioneering biodynamic producers. Lovely apple, lime and floral flavours with a touch of honey and high-wire mineral freshness. Rating: 91 (Apr 2016)

Medium straw. Aromas and flavors of ripe apricot, peach and spiced apple. Broad, fresh and dry in the mouth, with a clean, persistent finish. This lovely, easygoing white wine had me looking for a plate of bivalves. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Rating: 88 Ian d'Agata, (Feb 2016)

Jean-Michel Deiss is one of the leading lights in biodynamics at his 27ha estate, and whole he may be seen as a maverick figurehead he really does believe that a wine's terroir is more important than its grape variety. Here, white peach, apricot and lemon are balanced with a slightly richer structure than usual for Riesling, as well as effortless complexity, freshness and focus.

Domaine Marcel Deiss

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.
