Domaine Muré Clos St. Landelin Gewürztraminer, Alsace, France

Mure Gewurztraminer

‘‘Signature’s’’ wines from the Muré’s family express completely the grape-variety character. They are marked by the pureness of the fruit taste.

Average age of vines: 35 years

Vinification: Slow fermentation and maturation on fine lees

Harvest: By hand in 20-kg-boxes

Alcohol: 13,5 %/volume

Ageing potential: Until 2021

Tasting notes:

Notes of russet-pear peel, ripe peach and earth are pervaded by citrus zestiness on the nose. The palate frames these in gentle sweetness but the concentrated fruit and zestiness provide a backdrop of firm freshness. This wine has lovely balance, great concentration and an extended, off-dry finish

Domaine Muré Clos St. Landelin Riesling, Alsace, France

Mure Riesling

Located in Rouffach, in the South of Alsace, the Clos Saint Landelin is the sole – and proud – ownership of Muré family. This 12 ha (25 acres) property lies just to the south of the town of Rouffach. Situated at the end of the valley, with south-facing exposition, it is wonderfully sunny until the end of the day. The winds from north and west offer good and clean conditions of maturation. Its very steep slopes need terrace-growing. The clay limestone topsoil is very stony ; the subsoil is made of calcareous sandstone from Bajocien era (Middle Jurassic) with limestone conglomerates from the Oligocene. The vineyard has both biodynamic (Demeter) and organic (Ecocert) certification. The vines are planted with high density, around 10 000 plants by hectare.
