Notes from Marcel Deiss:
"The first limestone slab of the great Oolite, inclined towards the East and standing erect like a sentinel facing the South and the plain, the Rotenberg is the earliest Terroir of Bergheim. Its red soil , marked by iron , is deeply calcareous and the highly solar climate is the shared home of Riesling and Pinot Gris. The wines show the characteristics of citrus, less candied than on Grasberg, but fine and very elegant. Rotenberg wines are to be served fairly young. They are fresh and airy with a very aromatic lemony acidic note that is ideal when served with the best types of fish, which are thus illuminated in light that is … almost geological!
This wine comes exclusively from the vineyards of Domaine Marcel DEISS. It is produced from ripe grapes, vinified with the utmost respect and without oenological inputs. These grapes express the depth of the Alsatian terroir and we are happy to produce a wine that expresses our attachment to our region."
