Dirler-Cadé, Muscat Alsace Grand Cru Saering AOC 2009


The Saering area has been planted with vines since at least the 13th century. The 2009 Muscat (mainly Muscat d’Alsace with some Muscat Ottonel) displays intense and complex aromas of grapes, yellow fruit and citrus (bergamot), as well as of fresh flowers. This is counterbalanced by spicy, exotic notes, and also by the dry, almost saline minerality which is characteristic of the Saering Grand Cru. Wine made from organic grapes. 12.5%. In top shape, drink now to 2025.

Ratings: Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 16/20 and two stars for Domaine Dirler-Cadé

Serving suggestions: Serve cool but not too cold, at 10-13°C, as an aperitif wine, or with shellfish; try also spicy dishes, e.g. Thai (avoid coconut though) or northern Indian cuisines.

Domaine Dirler-Cadé

Domaine Dirler-Cadé -Established in 1871, this traditional Alsace winery has been managed by the same family for five generations. Almost half of Dirler-Cadé’s 18 hectares of vineyards, all cultivated according to the principles of biodynamics, are classified as Grand Cru. Their range of classic dry white wines is highly reputed, in the first place those made from Riesling and Muscat, but also from Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Sylvaner.

We have included two different (and both excellent) vintages of the Muscat Grand Cru Saering, one of the Domaine’s top wines, in our wine list.
