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.

(a blend of 60% auxerrois and 40% pinot blanc): Pale straw. Highly perfumed nose combines white flowers, white peach and beeswax; this smells more of blanc than of auxerrois, despite the former's minority standing in the blend. Then rich and almost sweet on the palate, conveying velvety, glyceral texture and white peach and green apple flavors. The long finish features repeating floral nuances. Ludivine Dirler suggests drinking this alongside a bowl of steamed mussels.
