Very ripe notes of yellow pear appear on the nose. A touch of earthiness adds texture and interest to the palate, as does the merest smidgen of residual sweetness, boosting the fruit flavors. A zesty freshness pulls all into focus. The finish is dry and lasting. (Aug 2017)

Bright straw. Rich and ripe, but with lovely lemony acidity lifting the opulent baked apple, pear and sweet spice flavors. ... read more

Vinous 91
Bright straw. Rich and ripe, but with lovely lemony acidity lifting the opulent baked apple, pear and sweet spice flavors. The finish is long and clean, and features persistent chamomile notes. Lovely Geisberg. Theres much less noble rot in this wine than in the 2013 (and in 2014, even fewer grapes were hit, only about 5 percent of the total), but this is richer and more complex than that wine. This plot of Geisberg vines is one of the very best in the whole cru (Tottoli rents it from Robert Faller but is hoping to buy it)

Kuentz Bas

View all from Kuentz Bas
Kuentz BasMaison 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.
