Winemaker Notes

Brilliant pale yellow. Discreetly floral and ripe at first, then fruity and lightly spiced with notes of flowers and mirabelle plums. Sweetish, mineral, elegant with great suppleness and structure. Big, mineral powerful wine. Perfect with Asian food such as spring rolls, poultry or sweet and sour dishes.

Wine Spectator
A rich, vibrant white, with a lightly honeyed edge to the flavors of apricot, quince paste, orange sorbet and candied lemon zest. There's a pleasant creaminess, but this is well-focused by the mouthwatering acidity that balances the wine. The smoky finish shows a hint of caramel. Drink now through 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Candied orange rind, peach preserves, and marzipan on the nose of Barmes-Buecher’s 2008 Gewurztraminer Pfersigberg are supported on the palate by 77 grams residual sugar, setting a confectionary tone that carries through the finish. This is illustrative of the tendency in this collection for obvious Gewurztraminer character to be sublimated, since one could easily imagine it were a Pinot Gris. The acids are measurably low but there is no sense of deficiency. Salted caramel, sauteed mushroom, and faint intimations of rose petal modulate the confectionary notes in a soothingly sustained finish. I would expect this to hold up well for at least 10-12 years.

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.
