2014 Riesling

Kuentz-Bas

2014 Riesling Kuentz-Bas - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
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

About Alsace

Tragically, Alsace might be the most misunderstood wine region of France. In spite of its long history of viticulture and tremendous diversity of pedigreed terroirs, a past fraught with marketing mishaps has left consumers baffled as to what exactly to expect inside one of these mysterious tall, thin bottles.

The good news, on the other hand, is that a new wave of quality-oriented growers is working hard to put Alsace in its rightful place as one of the world’s most fascinating sources of fine white wine. By embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to better communicate the countless virtues their wines have to offer, they have succeeded in putting Alsace back on the map.

Crafted from a number of grape varieties and beautifully interpreting the region’s mosaic of soil types, our Alsace imports are by and large dry whites offering exceptional versatility at table. While each of these selections is ready to be uncorked tonight, the finest among them are also capable of maturing for many, many years in a cool cellar. Expect kaleidoscopic aromatics, lively acidities, and loads of terroir transparency in these skillfully crafted masterpieces. Enjoy a foray into the thrilling world of the world’s most underrated wine region, and certainly do not hesitate to contact our sales staff with any questions as you take off on this mouth-watering adventure.
