Domaine Barmès-Buecher Riesling Clos Sand 2021

Alsace, FranceGeneviève Buecher and François Barmès established their estate in 1985 by joining the vines of each respective family who had held land there since the 17th century, near the village of Wettolsheim. Today Domaine Barmès-Buecher spreads over 17 biodynamically farmed hectares, scattered over 7 terroirs including 3 Grands Crus: Hengst, Pfersisberg and Steingrubler. This clos sits on a 40-50% granite mica slope of 350 to 400m, overlooking the village of Wettolsheim. After a native ferment, this spent 10 months on lees. There's a waxen honeyed stone fruit note that pervades this dry, lighter riesling, with shavings of apricot skin, tangerine, crab apple pinning in the sides, and lingering on the finish. A severe and uncompromising look at the site, and one purists should enjoy.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
