Wine Insight

Established in 1691 by M. Jodocus CISLE (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin ZUSSLIN is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family who are following in the footsteps of their forbears. Marie Zusslin and Jean Paul Zusslin (sister and brother) have managed the company since 2000.

The winery is based in Orschwihr, South of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. In 1997 the domaine converted to biodynamic viticulture. Most of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is done by hand, this allows the grapes to express the full potential and the unique terroirs of the Domaine

This elegant, bio-dynamically produced Pinot Noir comes from the west facing side of the hillside, where the soil is quite a deep red of limestone clay with related iron minerals. Destalked 100% and aged for a year in wooden cuve and 228 litre barrels, it has a typically pinot pale colour, is remarkably clear and fine on the nose, and is fruity and nicely structured with very fine grained tannins on the finish
