Grassy and floral with spicy lift. Stone fruits and lemon flesh. This is taut, intense and long with excellent concentration, direction and drive.

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.
