Aromatic & Flavourful

When Michel Muré settled in Rouffach and planted his vineyard in the 17th century, he surely had little conception of the beautiful adventure that he was setting in motion for his descendants. In 1935, Alfred Muré extended the property with the addition of the 12-hectare (25-acre) wholly owned Clos Saint Landelin, foreseeing already its potential for exceptional quality. He replanted the terraces, ideally situated with their sunny exposure and shelter from the rain.

Nowadays it is Alfred’s grandson René, together with his children Véronique and Thomas, the 11th and 12th generations of the family, who are responsible for running this exceptional, wholly-owned vineyard and its neighbouring terroirs, using biodynamic methods.

Muré wines are fine and rich with beautifully mineral acidities. This is achieved in the vineyard where Alsace’s naturally long ripening season is enhanced by Muré’s exceptional south-facing slopes. These are delightful and exciting wines, abundant in flavour, opulence and lacy acidity.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 10-14 business days to be delivered.

About the Winery

Domaine Muré

The Muré family has been winegrowers in the region of Rouffach since 1650. In 1935, Alfred Muré, René’s grandfather, bought 32 acres of family-monopole vineyard name Clos St. Landelin, an area that has been described as the best of Alsace Grand Cru since the 7th Century.

Today, René Muré, the 11th generation of the family, along with his children, Véronique and Thomas, are responsible for running their exceptional Grand Cru vineyard and neighbouring terroirs using biodynamic methods. Until this day, they persist in hand-picking every single grape, and focus on crafting wines that preserve the family’s credo. The resulting wines are some of Alsace's finest – powerful, elegant, and age-worthy.

Press Reviews

James Suckling

Rich, creamy and succulent, this seductive gewurz has complex floral aromas that are not a jot overdone. Very pure, straight finish, in spite of the unmistakable touch of sweetness. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.

This is a somewhat restrained gewurz with a sense of delicacy which is hard to accomplish with such an aromatic and expressive variety. It shows cool lychee, pear fruit, anise, ginger and pretty floral lilac notes. It is full bodied, soft and off-dry to medium sweet with nicely focused flavours. The length is excellent. Very graceful which is not an adjective often applied to gewurztraminer. Tasted November 2020

Honeysuckle and peach on the nose of this wine are joined by a vivid streak of lychee. The palate tones the florals down and focuses on luscious peach flesh instead. Medium sweetness intensifies the fruitiness while mandarin zestiness counters the richness. A pleasant bitter note intensifies the finish. Lovely now, the wine is sure to evolve. Drink by 2030
