Producer: René Muré
Region: Alsace - Grand Cru Vorbourg
The Muré family have been making wine in the southerly Rouffach region since the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648; René is the eleventh generation in charge, and farms both the original holdings and the Clos St Landelin, a thirteen-hectare plot within the Grand Cru Vorbourg bought by his grandfather in 1935. Situated at the southern end of the grand cru Vorbourg, the terraced Clos Saint Landelin consists of steep south-facing slopes. The soil is clay and limestone with a lot of stones, and the vineyard is farmed organically. All grapes are hand harvested. A slow fermentation is followed by maturation on fine lees. Soft and lush with apricot, peach and grapefruit flavours. Complex and well-structured with a good length.
