While the winemaking history of the Rolly and Gassmann families in Alsace can be traced back to the 17th century, the Domaine was not established until 1967 when these two families were joined by marriage. Now run by second generation Pierre Gassmann, the domaine boasts 52 hectares in the Haut-Rhin region, 40 of which are in Rorschwihr and 10 in Bergheim. The family is known for their remarkable collection of vintages; they age and store up to five years’ worth of stock - around 1.5 million bottles - and only release wines that they feel are ready to drink. Their six-tier, state-of-the-art construction, built into the hillside, has brought their gravity-fed vinification facilities, cellar and panoramic tasting-room under one roof.
TASTING - 100% Riesling with an expressive nose, with notes of white and yellow flowers, and a delicate toasty note. The palate is concentrated and complex, with fresh stone fruit characters, a well-balanced acidity and a saline note on the finish.
A vegetable, medium-spicy stir-fry would be excellent with a fresh Riesling from Alsace such as this one. Stir-fries with a gentle mix of spice, sweet, sour and salt are a great pairing for Riesling as the nuances of sweetness in the off-dry examples echo the flavours in the stir-fry.
