Riesling sur Grés, Domaine Durrman
Region: Alsace, France
Wine type: White
About: The Durrmann family are making wine from their old family house in the middle of Andlau, a beautiful village nestled on the first slopes of the Vosges mountains south-west of Strasbourg. Son Yann has worked in the domaine since he was a child and officially took over the running of the business a year ago. André was among the first wave of organic winemakers in Alsace converting in 1998, Yann has then taken this a step further applying a more natural approach in the cellar. Selected cuvées are produced without sulfur addition since 2007.
Vibrant and zippy Riesling, with the Grés terroir bringing a less aromatic profile and a straighter spine, tightly wound acidity.
