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.

(14.7% alcohol, with 14 grams of sugar) Pale lemon-yellow color. Pungent, varietally accurate aromas of clove, cinnamon, rose petal and cured meats. Supple, lush and round, with the spicy cured meat character dominating the palate. Ripe acidity provides shape and extends the finish. From a crop level of just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Dirler.
