AGATHE BURSIN

Agathe Bursin, Alsace's up and coming vineyard, has been producing wines since 2000 and she is reaching ever greater heights of purity and quality. Agathe’s style has always been one of richness and character with a distinctive textured style; she strives to articulate the quality of her vineyards and the pure character of her noble varieties. Her reputation is very much on the increase as she gains greater recognition outside of France. Despite this rising profile she maintains exceptionally sensible pricing. Lovers of classic, textural Alsatian wines have a lot to investigate here.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU

TASTING NOTES

Agathe Bursin's Gewurztraminer Dirstelberg has an enveloping bouquet of wild flowers mingled with exotic notes of rose petals and lychee. The palate is perfectly balanced with silky fruit characters, a lively freshness and warming notes of spice on the finish.

2016 Pinot Gris, Domaine Boeckel

Bottle 75cl £13.84

TASTING NOTES

Grassy and floral with spicy lift. Stone fruits and lemon flesh. This is taut, intense and long with excellent concentration, direction and drive. The ripe fruit which is characteristic of Zotzenberg is perfectly balanced by surging minerality and crisp, bright acidity. This will reward cellar time but is already lovely to drink and I wouldn’t hesitate to decant and drink...

2016 Riesling, Domaine Boeckel

Bottle 75cl £12.78

TASTING NOTES

Medium intensity of orange, musk, rose petals. On the palate there is power and richness, musky, tropical, bright and vibrant acid giving incredible length.

TASTING NOTES

Deeper and spicier, almost grassy with floral notes, the palate displays lovely ripeness and intensity of fleshy citrus fruit with spice, grip and great length.

BUY
TASTING NOTES

Fresh and lively with floral lift and a sense of orange peel and zest. Crisp, bright and taut with slate-y minerality. Again there is an awful lot here for the money with plenty of depth and a lengthy finish. Above all though this is delicious.

AGATHE BURSIN WINE

Domaine Agathe Bursin is one of a handful of wineries run by young, dynamic producers in Alsace.

With a longstanding family history of winemaking it was inevitable Agathe Bursin would inherit the family estate, and in 2000 she took over the reins and successfully set about growing her premium vineyard holdings as well as her reputation. With 5.5 hectares of vineyards, including a parcel of Zinnkoepflé Grand Cru, Domaine Agathe Bursin’s production is small but quality-focused.

The care Agathe Bursin takes from vineyard to winery is evident in her outstanding wine and this, alongside her very sensible pricing, has ensured she has a dedicated following. Agathe’s portfolio focuses on Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Sylvaner. Sylvaner, an oft-forgotten variety, is revived in Agathe’s skilled hands to create a wonderfully fruity, concentrated and complex wine. Her characteristic restraint, minerality and elegance run through her wines from the entry level to the Grand Cru.
