Bruno Sorg

Very fine small producer with vineyard holdings of about 10 hectars and a production of around 6200 cases. The domaine was originally established in Igersheim in 1965 and then moved to Eguishemin 1972, the hometown of Bruno Sorg. Son Francois is now at the helm of the winery.

The policy is aimed at the respect of the soil, the fauna and the biodiversity in the vineyards for the production of high quality fruit. Yields are kept low (not higher than 40 Hl/Ha) and the wines, including the generic range, are very well balanced, typically have a very pure, focused style and a cleansing, clean acidity that provides nerve and finesse enhancing the perception of the primary elements. All output is produced from own holdings including parcels in the Grand Cru vineyards of Pfersigberg, Eichberg and Florimont (Ingersheim). The domaine’s top muscat bottling is highly prized and rightly so.  A very sound Cremant is also produced.

Fermantation can last up to three months and, generally steel tanks are favoured. The wines are aged in big, old wooden barrels.

Among the wines tasted:

Bruno Sorg Pinot Blanc 2008: Flowery and balanced. Good value basic.

Bruno Sorg Riesling 2007:  Honeyed, viscous and with a remarkable lemony, acidic nerve. I found this quite impressive, especially considering it’s price..

Bruno Sorg Riesling Florimont 2005: Intense, concentrated and dry with lots of flowery finesse.

Bruno Sorg Riesling Pfersigberg 2005:  White fruit, minerally and full of weight. Rich and dry, very Sorg style.

Bruno Sorg Riesling Pfersigberg Vieille Vigne 2003: Dense and fat, showing layers of complexity. Superb.

Bruno Sorg Riesling Selection de Grains Nobles 1997: Spicy, complex nose displaying depth and richness. Lush wine.

Bruno Sorg Muscat 2007: Grapey and aromatic with a sweet edge. Delicate overall but lacking enough weight.

Bruno Sorg Muscat Pfersigberg 2007:  Seriously crafted, packed with flavour. Floral, with some grassy edge. Some residual sugar, but a very fine acidity that keeps things in great balance. One of the best muscat examples in Alsace.
