About Domaine Dirler-Cade
Founded in 1871 by one Jean Dirler in southern Alsace, this family-owned domain is now run, five generations later, by another Jean Dirler. Though it bottles Pinot Noir, the domain is best known for its dry, classically structured, mineral-rich white Alsace varietals.

85 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006
Pale gold. Deeply pitched aromas of smoked meat and black licorice; a tad blurry. Round, rich, supple and easygoing, with an attractive spicy character but modest grip. This wine fermented less well due to some rot, admitted Dirler, who added that "some of our pickers are better than others at eliminating rotten grapes in the vines, which is where it has to be done."
