2015 Muscat Grand Cru “Kirchberg de Ribeauvillé”

Kuentz-Bas

This is one of the best wines to come out of the Kuentz-Bas cellars in many years. The steep and stony Kirchberg grand cru in Ribeauvillé, next to Geisberg, is known as one of the great terroirs for the noble Muscat grape. If you haven’t yet discovered the wonders of dry Muscat from Alsace, both young and old, start here and spoil yourself forever! I have been aging and enjoying dry Muscat from Alsace for years, and it has been one of my most pleasant discoveries in wine. Delicious now, this will improve for decades. When I go to my cellar for white wine, I find myself reaching for Alsace more often than not, and this is a perfect example of why.

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.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
