This is a new Alsatian brand from Mathieu Deiss, son of acclaimed vigneron Jean-Michel Deiss of Domaine Marcel Deiss. In addition to working in the vines and cellar of his family domaine, Mathieu manages this spectacular 17.3 acre property, making exclusively estate grown wines. Parcels are located mostly in the commune of Bennwihr, just outside of the valley of Kaysersberg. The estate is certified organic by Ecocert, and biodynamic by Demeter.
Mathieu began three years ago by reclaiming vines left to him by his grandfather and uncle. A champion of terroir driven wines like his father, Mathieu also believes that to make a great wine, there must be harmony between the grape variety, the vintage, and the terroir. Like a photographer capturing the moment, this new line honors the winemaker’s ability to reflect his devotion to nature through the vine, and in the bottle.
Vinification will be done at Domaine Marcel Deiss as Mathieu has no plans to construct an independent winery, citing instead his continued commitment to working his family’s estate.
Beautiful nose! It's fresh, elegant and fragrant. Notes of roses mingle with those of apricot and lychee with a hint of mirabelle plum. The palate is round and fresh, tasty and invigorating. Delightful!
