All Deiss wines are certified organic, made from grapes grown biodynamically and they break new ground in style and quality...
Hippolyte Rouge is a French Pinot Noir from one of the country's great classic wine regions and from a cult producer, but it's not from Burgundy. Hippolyte is new in store from Domaine Marcel Deiss, one of the greatest organic and biodynamic winemakers in Alsace, the most eastern, the driest and the most Germanic of all French wine regions. Appropriately enough, it is packaged in a tall, Alsatian bottle rather than a fat rounded Burgundian one.
It's made from arid granite soil type known as grey Thannenkirch. More importantly, it not only looks elegant in its classic tall Alsatian bottle, it tastes it, thanks to silky smooth textures, the lightest note of spice and the red elegant, seductively fresh berry and redcurrant fruit forward flavours.
Domaine Marcel Deiss is based in Bergheim, a small village nestling in the heart of the wine region of Alsace, equal distance from the northern and southern boundaries of the region. The current winemaker is Jean-Michel Deiss, who was born into a long-established family of wine growers, living at Bergheim since 1744.
Deiss manages the 26 hectare domaine of hillside vineyards spread over nine communes and approximately 20 kilometres. All Deiss wines are certified organic, made from grapes grown biodynamically and they break new ground in style and quality. Many are field blends, made in homage to historical growing methods where many different grape varieties grew together alongside each other, were picked together and fermented together.
