Importer's Notes: "Jean-Michel Deiss is what the French call, a fouteur de merde, a shit-stirrer. After an old man on his deathbed entrusted him with one of Alsace's gems, the Schoenenbourg vineyard, Jean-Michel found that it was planted to an old field blend or "co-plantation." He soon realized that this was the missing link in his quest for great wine and he replanted every single one of his top vineyards to such blends. Though this had once been the norm in Alsace, by the time Jean-Michel planted his grand crus to field blends, it was a technique reserved to lowly wines. The 2015 Alsace Blanc is composed of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Beurot, Pinot Noir, Sylvaner, Muscat d'Alsace (white and red), Muscat à Petit Grain, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Traminer, Chasselas, Chasselas Rose. The vines were planted between 1980-2010 at 8,000 vines per ha. Fruit comes from multiple Bergheim vineyards with clay-limestone soil, including younger vines from 1er Cru parcels. The vineyards are certified organic (Ecocert) and biodynamic. Vinification is whole cluster pressed, indigenous yeast fermentation. Aging on fine lees for 1 year."
