Domaine Pfister has a remarkably long history, dating back to the late 1700’s. Melanie Pfister, a winemaking star of the current generation in Alsace, picked up the reins from her father in 2006, becoming the eighth generation Pfister to make wine at the domaine.
Melanie generally produces 15 different wines yearly and continues the traditon of the very dry, aromatic, well-balanced style of her predecessors. She makes two Rieslings, both entirely dry. One is tantalizingly full, rich, and earthy, while the other, the Grand Cru, makes you sit up with its petrol, its white flowers, and its bounding, razor sharp minerality.
If you like wines marked above all by purity of fruit, elegance, and character (to say nothing of reasonable pricing), you have come to the right place.
