Planted over compact sandstone (the eponymous Grès), this is a typically vivid Durrmann Riesling expression, in that it has the quality of feeling electrically-charged. Mouthwatering lemon citrus with an acidity that is dialled right up to 11. A great introduction to this producer's uncompromising style.

The Durrmann family had made wine for generations as small farmers. Grandad had moved away from farming to become a shoemaker but still kept a few vines on the side. André decided to move back to farming in 1979 and pieced the domaine together from abandoned vineyard sites that were hard to work and no longer commercially viable. Son Yann has worked in the domaine since he was a child and officially took over the business a year ago. André was among the first wave of organic winemakers in Alsace, converting in 1998. Yann has taken this a step further applying a more natural approach in the cellar.
