Description
 
ABOUT: Dirler-Cade is the merging of 2 Alsatian winemaking families, the marriage of 5th generation Jean Dirler to Ludivine Cade, combining vineyards lands now totaling 45 hectares in the small village of Bergholtz. 40% of their vineyards are within the grand crus Saering, Spiegel, Kessler, and Kitterle and the majority of their holdings are planted to Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris. Large oak fudres and stainless steel are used during vinification and the vineyards have been farmed biodynamically since 1998 and certified 2007. Check out this article about Domaine Dirler-Cade by Karen Ulrich.

TASTE: The 2009 Pinot Blanc Reserve is from 3 hectares within the Kessler and Spiegel grand crus. Lifted aromas of white flowers and peaches, apricots and lemon peel laced into a fuller body than I expected. Dry, but with a slightly sweet edge and balanced acidity make for an excellent pairing with Asian cuisine as well as the traditionally rich dishes of Alsace.

PAIR: Leeks, onions, mushrooms, roasted vegetables, frittata, butter sauces, Munster, gingerbread, and potatoes.
