PRODUCER

AGATHE BURSIN

Agathe Bursin 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.

Agathe Bursin is one of a handful of young, dynamic producers in Alsace.

With a longstanding family history of winemaking it was inevitable Agathe 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, her production is small but quality-focussed.

The care Agathe 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.

TASTING NOTES

Produced from organic grapes, this is bright, crisp and wonderfully floral. The enticing perfume is dominated by apricot and baked apple notes, but a lovely floral aromatic is certainly present. Bright, dense and juicy on the palate, there is a wonderful purity to the white stone fruit and ripe tropical flavours. Lutzeltal is a very gravelly site, with vines around...

TASTING NOTES

Bright red. Elements of torrefaction camouflage the bright red berry and flint aromas. Then much brighter and fruitier in the mouth; delicious red berry and cherry flavors are rich and ripe but lifted by vibrant acidity. The finish is long and savory. This wine has sneaky concentration and complexity, and the oak is much less evident in the mouth than...
