Domaine Marcel Deiss Rotenberg 2011
|Varietal(s)||Riesling Pinot Gris/Grigio|
|Brand||Domaine Marcel Deiss|
Wine Enthusiast – A high-toned pitch of ripe pear and tart apple is like a clarion call. Residual sweetness on the palate mollifies that distinct, primal acidity, lending life to notes of dried peach and fresh apricot. Layers of flavor shimmer and shift, with apple notes that last and last.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Melon and papaya are suggested by the nose of Deiss's Riesling- and Pinot Gris-dominated 2011 Rotenberg and reinforced by the wine's sense of sweetness, though that is arguably compensated for by a sense of energy alleged to originate with the high active lime in these soils. A creamy texture along with rich evocations of nut oils make for a soothing yet stimulating finish. This ought to be well-worth following through at least 2020.
In a mixed or straight case: $94.04
