About Domaine Barmes-Buecher
Husband and wife team Francois and Genevieve Barmes created Domaine Barmes-Buecher in 1985 from family land owned since the 17th century. Today, after the death of Francois, Genevieve carries on their life’s work, managing 30 acres in Alsace, around the towns of Wettolsheim, Turckheim, and Wintzenheim.

Bright, pale yellow. Ripe aromas of soft yellow fruits, underripe pineapple, brown spices and fresh herbs, plus a hint of earth. Broad, spicy and airy; in an off-dry style but quite light on its feet. Finishes with lovely subtle persistence and a lightly dusty quality. Went through its malolactic fermentation, but Barmes notes that the 2007s are rich in the more stable tartaric acidity, which should enable them to age slowly and well. These vines average 40 years of age.
