2016 Kuentz Bas Alsace Blanc, 750ml

Availability: In stock (2)

Biodynamic white wine from Alsace at an exceptional price point. A blend of 60% Sylvaner, 20% Auxerrois, 20% Muscat that delivers a lovely combination of fresh acidity and floral-fruity characteristics. The vines are between 24 and 45 years old, made with minimal intervention in the cellar, allowing the fermentation to take its natural course. Aged on the lees and racked in the spring according to the lunar cycle.

From the mouth of the importer (Kermit Lynch):

"Maison Kuentz-Bas was first established by the Kuentz family in 1795, and the domaine as we know it today was forged through a marriage that joined the Kuentz and Bas families in 1895. Nestled in the town of Husseren-les-Châteaux, it sits at one of the highest points in Alsace, and the vineyards stretch out from the village over an area of ten hectares. More than two hundred years of tradition and vineyard pedigree have made these wines perennial favorites, with the grand crus of Eichberg and Pfersigberg earning the highest esteem. However, when the family sold the property to famed vigneron Jean-Baptiste Adam in 2004, many wondered what direction the new team would take. Adam, like the estate’s former owners, has a reputation for being an advocate of Alsatian terroir, and he is the fourteenth generation to continue a family winemaking tradition that began as early as 1614. Eager to restore Kuentz-Bas to its former glory, Adam lowered yields significantly and reverted to natural methods, following organic and biodynamic approaches to vineyard work."
