2014 Pinot Blanc Kuentz-Bas - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $14.95

The historic Kuentz-Bas estate is producing some of its finest wines in recent memory. While winemaker Samuel Tottoli crafts stunning Rieslings and Pinot Gris from several esteemed grands crus, his everyday whites, like this Pinot Blanc (actually a blend of Pinot Blanc with Auxerrois), garner the most recognition: consistently delivering terrific value, they do not disappoint. Samuel’s key is to treat his more modest bottlings with as much care and respect as his most coveted cuvées, always seeking to showcase terroir by minimizing intervention in the cellar. Farmed according to organic and biodynamic principles, the fruit ferments wild after being pressed and racked into the domaine’s ancient wood foudres, where the wine naturally completes its malolactic fermentation for additional texture and length. Not many entry-level whites are made this way anywhere in the world, and the result—elegant, clean, and dry with abundant apple, pear, and peach fruit, floral nuances, and a focused minerality—suggests Samuel may be onto something. –Anthony Lynch
