Domaine Mersiol Crémant d’Alsace
30th March 2016
The Mersiol family heritage dates back to the 18th century on the hillsides of Dambach-la-ville in the Alsace region of northeastern France.
They sold their first wine in 1946, but it wasn’t until 1960 the estate expanded and created ‘Domaine Mersiol’ after Guy Mersiol married Anne-Lise Ruhlmann whose family owned an adjoining Estate.
Domaine Mersiol has 12 hectares of vineyards, 3.5 of which are classified as Grand Cru Frankstein (once awarded to the best terroir of the region). Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer are most suited to growing in these Grand Cru vineyards.
All wines are Estate grown, vinified and bottled. Since 2006, the estate has cultivated in an organic way to extract the delicate minerality from their terroir made out of granite.
The medieval city of Dambach-la-Ville in central Alsace is a stunning place to visit with its winding alleys, typical colombage houses and its three huge gates dating from the 14th
