Jean-Michel Deiss is something of a “fouteur de merde” (shit-stirrer) in the Alsatian wine community for his disdain for the region’s Grand Cru system and devotion to co-planted field blends, believing the practice is the key to unlocking true terroir expression.
“Complantaion” is a blend of all 13 allowed grapes in Alsace (and maybe a few *technically* illegal others, but we’re not snitching), grown in several of Deiss’s vineyards, including younger vines from their self-proclaimed Premier Cru vineyards. Whole cluster pressed & indigenously fermented, it ages in steel for 12 months.
Gorgeously complex, with notes of Meyer lemon, pear, spice, nectarine, and fresh citrus, it’s refined and delicate with a wonderful minerality and incredible tension.
