Description

Arthur Ostertag's grandfather founded the Domaine back in 1966 and handed the keys to the cellar to André Ostertag in 1980 when the latter was just 21. André has always seen wine as a language that speaks to the senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch - and one that calls upon the grower's critical faculties, as well as memory (and memories). His winemaking is a "very soft process" that relies on preserving the living matter - slowly shaping the wine over a long time. Assuming control in 2018 - and with two generations still at his side - Arthur embodies this same approach. The Jardins range is a gracefully evocative introduction to the nature of the family's plots of vines, while Arthur continues to honour the spirit of observation and experimentation with occasional bottlings such as L'Éxutoire and Les Aventures de l'Agneau Masqué. At the top of the tree, the grand cru Muenchberg and lieu-dit bottlings balance sensuality and precision with peerless brilliance.

Tasting Profile

Palate
2019 The Pinot Blanc Les Jardins is a blend of six small gardens of vines, farmed biodynamically, and located in the town of Epfig with a small part coming from the Clos Mathis parcel in Ribeauvillé. Half the plots are true Pinot Blanc, the other half is Auxerrois which comes, for the most part, from the slopes of lieu-dit Fronholz. They are based on three "natures" of soil: clay-silt, marl-sandstone, and a touch of granite. The result is an uncommonly full-bodied and structured Pinot Blanc, yet bone-dry and mouthwatering. It exudes fresh and fruity aromas of yellow peaches and nectarine. A hint of hazelnut comes out with the air. The mouth is thick yet lent tension by zesty minerality.
