Producer
There are few estates in Alsace that can produce the kind of excitement that surrounds new releases from Ernest Burn.

The Burn domaine is located in a warm zone six miles southwest of Colmar. The village in which the domaine is situated, Gueberschwihr, is a beautifully medieval town that can trace its wine history back 800 years. Gueberschwihr's main claim to fame is its lone Grand Cru vineyard, Goldert. Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat are all produced there but it is the latter two which are its most famous representatives.

Within the Goldert vineyard, the Burn family owns a parcel which is particularly favored by the sun. They call it Clos St. Imer, after a local saint. That part of the vineyard is indeed enclosed (clos) by a wall. The Burns are quite religious and have gone so far as to build a small chapel at the top of the Clos St. Imer, within Goldert. For their very best and richest bottlings they use the designation "La Chapelle" to indicate their opinion of the wine and its value.

Alsatian labels tell you more than any others in France and Burn labels are more than usually informative. By paying attention to the differences between Goldert bottlings, for example, and those designated Clos St. Imer or Clos St. Imer La Chapelle, the consumer learns the exact provenance of the wine and the value the Burns put on it.
