Mure is a family owned winery that dates back to the mid 1600's. Located near the magical terroir of Rouffach, the family is a reference for the quality of biodynamic wines.  The Pinot Gris Pierres Sèches ('Dry Stones') takes its name from the dry stone wall terraces found in their Alsatian vineyards.  

On the nose, this Pinot Gris has hints of fresh herbs, yellow pear and some mineral stony tones. On the palate it is well balance and perfectly dry. 

A great accompaniment with fish or white meat dishes.

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.

Pierres Sèches means "dry stones" alluding to the stone wall terraces surrounding the vines in the terroir of Rouffach. Organic, 35 year-old vines and from well-draining, limestone and marl soils, helped by those dry stone walls. Actually quite unctuous pinot gris in the classic Alsace style in which some residual sugar is urged on by acidity with purposed equanimity. Begins in flinty smoulder, works through some terpenes, stone fruit and emerges into a world of candied lemon and pith. You can feel the barrel in that mild bitterness and in the creamy texture. A fulfilling wine with classicism coded in its DNA. Will transform into creme brule floating in a mineral salts bath. Drink 2021-2028. Tasted July 2020.
