Domaine Muré

Muré is recognised as one of the most historic producers in Alsace, with origins going back to 1650. Today, the 11th and 12th generation are in charge, making wines that are improving year-on-year. They are also developing a burgeoning reputation for their impressive red wine production.

The estate is based just outside the town of Rouffach in southern Alsace. Even in a region known for its lack of rainfall, this area is particularly dry and sunny, providing the perfect conditions for Pinot Noir cultivation.

At the helm is René Muré, softly spoken and thoughtful, aided by his two children, Véronique and Thomas. The jewel in their crown is the famous monopole vineyard of Clos Saint Landelin. This site was named after an Irish saint who reputedly settled here in the ninth century to preach the gospel and it is located as part of the grand cru Vorbourg.

Pinot Blanc Les Iris 2018

Complex, yet delicate example of this wonderful white grape. Subtle floral aromas, spice and white peach with a streak of limey acidity and a long rich finish.

Delightful wine

This was a delightful wine, crisp and dry but without any harsh edge. We drank it quite cold over two days, firstly as a glass on its own and next day with a light pasta dish and both times it worked really well. I would definitely buy it again. One observation would be that the bottle is heavier than the modern ones we are now used to. It's not a problem but just seems strange as you begin to pour.
