Tasting Notes

Among the Deiss wines, you can pair with deserts (just the fruit based ones such as pear or apple tarts as it’s not sweet enough for others.) This is what the Deiss’ website suggest: Shellfish and lobster,  chicken, capons and noble fishes, and caviar after a decade of ageing. One of the greatest wines in Alsace. Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat d'Alsace (white and red), Muscat à Petit Grain, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Traminer, Chasselas, Chasselas Rose. Planted 1952-1982

More Info

Schoenenbourg is very steep; it is hard to keep your balance when you step off the road into it. It faces south, like almost every grand cru in Alsace. But it is set deep inside the valley of Riquewihr, making it more of a cool site than a warm one. In fact, Jean-Michel says that it is one of the coldest and latest-ripening grand crus in Alsace. The coolness of the valley, the gypsum and the cold Keuper marl, are certainly what make Schoenenbourg so brilliantly contained.
