Item Sold Out
While this item isn't currently available:
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.

Kuentz Bas

View all from Kuentz Bas
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.
