To say the release of Catherine's wines are hotly anticipated around the world each year is an understatement. A quiet woman who works mostly on her own, except at harvest. From a family of Alsatian restauranteurs, that she has gained such a following for her smallish amount of bottles each year is some achievement in such a short space of time. 

Her wines are based throughly in the vineyard, austere yet of exacting detail, a volume in the glass that teases you in with delicious aromatics and supreme drinkability. Working with Riesling, Sylvaner, Auxerrois and Gewurz over a  mix of terroir from the poor and sandy to more dense clay, plus a rare pocket of blue schist that her Pinot Noir is grown on.  

De Grès Ou De Force is a study of citrus, tension and wit. Meyer lemons, grapefruit, lime, lemon pith, mint and thyme. Complex mineral depth and tension, This is a wine of great detail from a producer who's name is now being heard in broader circles and rightfully so. Outstanding.
