The Mader domaine is a very small quantity, high quality wine producer based in the picture postcard village of Hunawihr in the middle of vineyards on the Route des Vins. The family own 9 hectares of vineyards, including  prized holdings of vines in the famous ‘Rosacker’ Grand Cru vineyard and also now in the Grand cru Schl0ssberg. All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is now running the estate having studied and gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.

Jean Luc Mader Pinot Blanc 2016
The 2016 Pinot Blanc (2/3 Auxerrois and 1/3 Pinot Blanc) opens clear, fresh and slightly mineral on the nose, with white-fruit and melon aromas. This is a delicate and well-balanced white with juicy fruit, salty minerals and a good phenolic grip. This is a dry and straight food wine with a really good finish. Drink 2017-2026. Rating: 88 Points; Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com

Jean Luc Mader Riesling 2015
Contains almost 20% of de-classified Rosacker Grand cru fruit. A fine dry Riesling with texture and depth. Intense floral citrus and lime aromas with mineral backing and wonderful acid backbone. 2014: A tangy wine with a bright and intense acidity and delicious fruit. Full body, dried citrus and mineral. Crazy quality for entry level wine. Screw cap. Drink now. Rating: 92 Points"; James Suckling

Jean Luc Mader Gewurztraminer 2015
The 2015 Gewurztraminer is sourced in the higher altitudes of Hunawihr from clay and limestone soils. It has a clear and fresh, pretty, precise and aromatic bouquet with some smoky aromas. Bottled with 33 grams of residual sugar, this is a round and semi-sweet Gewurz with good grip and some mineral characteristics. Drink 2018-2030. Rating: 88 Points; Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com

Jean Luc Mader Pinot Gris 2015
The 2015 Pinot Gris opens clear, ripe and aromatic on the nose with smoky and tropical fruit aromas. Round and juicy on the palate this is a medium- to full-bodied and well-structured Pinot from pure clay soils. The wine was bottled with 14.5% alcohol and [just under] seven grams of residual sugar. Fine tannins here as well, and a good, slightly salty finish. Drink 2018-2023. Rating: 88 Points; Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com
