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.

Bright gold-tinged straw. Ripe peach on the nose, with strong floral elements of peony and lily. Then rich and suave on the palate, offering dense, tactile flavors of peach, honeydew and truffle oil. Finishes long and noticeably sweet (100 g/l) but with lipsmacking acidity and a bright mineral sheen. These vines were planted in the '70s by Schlumberger, but Dirler-Cadé exchanged a parcel of their vines in the Saering with Schlumberger to buy these. This could easily have been called a VT.
