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.

Full straw-yellow color. Extravagant aromas of apricot, peach, butter and honey, with an exotic smoky element; almost VT-like. Superrich, sweet and expressive, with yellow fruit flavors complicated by mineral and other soil tones. With its lovely verve, this comes across as less sweet than its 51 g/l r.s. would suggest. Builds impressively on the stony back end. "In 2005, the terroir is stronger than the grapes," observes Dirler.
