The Kuentz family began making wine in the town of Husseren-les-Châteaux in 1795, establishing the estate as a longtime ambassador of Alsatian winemaking tradition. Today, sommelier-turned-vigneron Samuel Tottoli is in charge, bringing youthful enthusiasm and a keen ambition to honor Kuentz-Bas’ past by continuing to produce wines that capture the magic of Alsace’s fine terroir. Having introduced biodynamic agriculture to the domaine, Samuel contributes a natural methodology that extends into the cellar, where wines ferment spontaneously in large hundred-year-old oak foudres. As a result, this Riesling shows great varietal character and regional typicity. Bone-dry on the palate, it features intense, clean aromas with excellent minerality. It showcases what well-made Riesling from Alsace can taste like, and, while it makes for a delicious apéritif, this wine truly shines at table—you’ll find it marries with anything from traditional Alsatian fare to more creative and exotic dishes, with wonderful results. –Anthony Lynch
