2016 Domaine Marcel Deiss

Grapes Gewurztraminer
Colour White
Origin France, Alsace
Other Organic, Bio-dynamic
ABV 13.5%

The hedonistic, all conquering, look-at-me, unsophisticated 'charm' of Gewürztraminer catches us all at one time or another but rarely do we linger long in the lychee and rose psychedelia of this extraordinary variety. You owe yourself a revisit to the day-glo side if only to try Jean-Michel Deiss' handling of the beast. Of course, it exudes scent and flamboyance, but there is some semblance of balance and complexity with the Deiss that alludes most/all others. "If shared, with the right dish, during a jaw-drop course at a dinner party, there are very few wines on the planet that can elicit the reaction that this wine can. All this and it is the same price as a dreary bottle of supermarket own-label Champagne." said Matthew Jukes of the 2015, and the 2016 will similarly amaze. What to serve it with? Pleasure? Chinese-style oriental dishes might be the obvious choice, but don't waste it on a cheap old take away. Or just with friends and idle chatter - they won't forget that evening in a hurry.

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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.
