This month, The Michelin-starred Albert 1er are pleased to introduce Zusslin wines, from the Alsace region.
Established in 1691 by M. Jodocus CISLE (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin ZUSSLIN is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family who are following in the footsteps of their forbearers. The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. In 1997, the winery converted to biodynamic viticulture. Much of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is done by hand, in order that the grapes can express the full potential of the unique terroirs of the Domaine
The morning tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant when the chef proposes a menu elaborated to match perfectly with the wines of the domain. The winemaker will take pleasure in joining you at the table.
