Domaine Jean-Luc Mader by Jean-Luc Mader

When any of the glossy wine magazines run an article on Alsace, more often than not the article is accompanied by a photograph of the 15th century church of Hunawihr. It is in this beautiful village that Jean Luc and Anne Mader have their domaine.

 

Up to 1980, Jean-Luc’s family used to sell all their grapes to the local co-operative. Having gained a degree in oenology from the University in Beaune, the young Jean-Luc and his wife Anne decided to make their own wine.

 

The Mader's are high quality - small quantity wine producers, and the Rieslings here are produced in the dry style, with potential to age for 5 years or more. Their Gewurtztraminer is considered a true Alsatian classic, intense but not too sweet. All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is running the estate having gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.

"Fragrant with barley sugar candy. Off-dry with delicious lychee and rose-water flavours enveloped in a honeyed and creamy texture. Balanced by moderate acidity and alcohol, and echoing honey on the finish. WINE OF THE WEEK." Liam Campbell, Irish Independent
