Kuentz Bas Alsace Blanc


Kuentz Bas Alsace Blanc

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.

Grape Varieties : Sylvaner, Auxerrois, Muscat.
Aging : 25 - 45 years.
Vinification : Whole grapes are pressed slowly (generally 4-6 hours) in a pneumatic press, then the must is chilled to 52° F while the heavy lees settle.
An overtone of honeysuckle clings to a hint of earthiness on the subtle nose of this wine. The palate presents vivid freshness, even zestiness. The body is light, easy, dry and very bright. Notes of very ripe pear dominate the nose. The palate shows more freshness to aid the spicy pear fruit on the midpalate. This is dry and fresh, with a slightly lemony finish. Drink soon. There is Edelzwicker and then there is the Kuentz-Bas Alsace Blanc, a step up in the hierarchy. It is bone dry with smoky yet bright citrus flavors--a delicious palate freshener.
