Domaine Marcel Deiss : Mambourg Grand cru 2012

SKU:F323/12 Alsace - White - 13° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 96

Domaine Marcel Deiss' 2012 Mambourg Grand Cru is a Pinot blend born on a site with unique geology. 

This 2012 vintage exhibits a clear sand colour and a subtle, round, yet very delicate nose with English cream notes, and delicate wood, wax, and bricks. Accessible at first, this Grand Cru from Alsace offers a deep palate with strong acidity. The finish carries hints of blond tobacco.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deiss's big and expressive 2012 Mambourg Grand Cru is one of the most fascinating dry-styled wines I have tasted during my visits in June 2015. Sourced from an extremely low-yielding field blend of Pinot Gris, Noir, Meunier, Blanc, and Beurot on magnesium-rich Oligocene limestones and marl conglomerates (12700 vines/ha), this white golden Pinot from the sunny top site above Sigolsheim is very deep, rich and precise on the concentrated nose that shows just a touch of new oak. Full-bodied, powerful and extremely complex on the palate, this salty and tension-filled wine reveals a vibrant and mineral soul with a firm and grippy tannin structure, and an impressive length. This is a kind of Montrachet if you will, but Jean-Michel Deiss would probably turn the limping comparison by saying that the Montrachet is just a Burgundian version of the Mambourg. Check also the Mambourg Gewurztraminer from Marc Tempé to find out more about the talents of this exceptional Alsatian Grand Cru.
