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.

About the Winery

Domaine Muré

The Muré family have been winegrowers in the region of Rouffach since 1650. In 1935, Alfred Muré, René’s grandfather, bought Clos St Landelin, a 32 acre family-monopole vineyard. 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. To express the “terroir” in the wines and to preserve the heritage is the Muré family’s credo. Their wines are known for power, elegance and age worthiness.

Press Reviews

92 Points - David Lawrason

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
