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.

Expert Reviews

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , September 2012

Bright straw-green.  Very tropical nose for sylvaner.  Then fresher, in fact almost tart, on the palate, with a mouthwatering quality that nicely frames the minty coriander, green apple and apricot flavors.  Finishes long and almost tannic.  Clearly, it's the mineral-rich Saering (roughly 50% of the grapes used to make this wine come from this grand cru) that provides the freshness here.  This is actually Dirler's favorite wine in 2010!  Similarly surprising is the fact that the 2010 sylvaner is much riper and more tropical than the 2011, most likely due to the difference in yields (30 hectoliters per hectare vs. 50).  Atypical but exciting sylvaner.
