About the Winery
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.
Beautifully aromatic, featuring lots of mineral and honey on the nose and palate, along with flavors of poached quince, sliced almond, star fruit and fleur de sel. Statuesque and framed by firm acidity, this is light- to medium-bodied, with a intense, mineral-driven finish. Drink now through 2030.
The fresh nose almost has a hint of salted lemon. On the palate both lemon and tart, red apple take over but the lemon streak of bright freshness dominates for now, creating drive. The concentrated body is bone dry and comes to a mouthwatering, superclean and long finish.
Maybe this isn't the most powerful dry riesling on the planet, but it has seductive apricot and floral aromas, as well as a great balance of juicy fruit and crisp, mineral acidity. Drink now or in 2019 and 2020. A very flexible food wine for European and East Asian cuisines. Made from organically and biodynamically grown grapes. Demeter certified.
