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.

Pale straw. Penetrating aromas of green apple, ripe pear and hazelnut complicated by fresh herbs on the inviting nose. Fresh and moderately sweet on the palate, with ripe white stone fruit and delicate mint and marjoram flavors. The brisk finish left me wanting more. These grapes were harvested on September 20, and about 50% were from 40-year-old vines situated on the more calcareous parts of the eastern slopes of the Saering grand cru, with east and southeast exposures. The pedigree of the grand cru origin of these grapes is noticeable in the silky, deep mouthfeel of this excellent sylvaner.
