Lettie Teague - The Wall Street Journal
"This biodynamic domaine based in the Alsace region turns out a wide range of wines, including this crisp, medium-bodied Sylvaner that is produced in part from the grand cru Saering vineyard."

Eric Asimov - The New York Times
"Perhaps rightly, silvaner (or sylvaner, as it’s often labeled in Alsace) receives little attention. It’s often a relatively neutral grape with little of interest in the way of flavor or texture. But well-made versions like this from Dirler-Cadé can be delightful warm-weather quaffs. Its delicate floral and herbal flavors, lightly fruity and lightly savory, are perfect for an outdoor lunch and whiling away the afternoon."

"60% of this Sylvaner comes from the Saering Grand Cru, which sits at 260-300 meters in altitude, with an E and SE exposure. Biodynamic viticulture. Soil ploughed 4 to 5 times a year. Old wood not pruned off until March. Debud but never green harvest. Use of sulfur and homeopathic doses of the plant `horsetail' against oidium. Use of Bacillus Thurengiensis against pests. Never use fertilizer, only a touch of limestone if necessary. Manual harvest with careful selection carried out."
