Bright deep straw-yellow. Pure, high-toned but fresh aromas of apricot, white flowers, anise and caramel. Wonderfully rich yet tangy on the palate, showing superb verve in spite of its concentrated flavors and tactile but silky mouthfeel. Finishes extremely long and clean, not to mention with greater complexity and depth than is usual for this bottling. Tastes practically dry, but some might note a hint of residual sweetness; in fact, a little residual sugar is not out of place here, given the wine’s big structure and mouthfeel. The vines are 50-60 years old, located on heavy clay soil with a few rocks. This is a field blend of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.

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.

Anniversary Tasting Selection

Here are a dozen wines we absolutely loved from our Anniversary tasting celebrating 30 years of Lea & Sandeman. These were all tasting beautifully on the night and the selection has everything you could possibly want; from deliciously drinkable 2014 Bordeaux, to an Alsace field blend, to Spain's wondrous old vine but 'new wave' red - there's never been a better time to explore the L&S range (and free delivery too).
