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.

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , September 2012

Bright pale gold.  Rich aromas of mango, sweet pea and smoky bacon.  Fat, sweet and rather large-scaled, with powerful flavors of ripe peach and smoked pork.  Ripe, smooth and cleanly made, finishing with persistent notes of smoke and lichee.  This will hold great appeal for those who love big, fat, smoky gewurzes.  Much more concentrated and smoky than the entry-level gewurztraminer, as this was made from slightly older vines (planted in 1967) and riper grapes (harvested  about a week later).  Still, there's such lively acidity here that I would never have guessed this is carrying 29 g/l residual sugar.
