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.

(from a trie, which Barmes said was the only one he did in 2007; the rest of this fruit went into the Herrenweg) Pale bright golden-yellow. Deep, sappy nose of yellow fruits and spices. Glyceral-verging-on-viscous, with about 100 g/l r.s., but with lovely vivacity from brisk acidity. There's a deep spiciness that almost seems to come from oak. Finishes extremely long and a bit tannic, with a suggestion of raisined grapes but also terrific verve and lift. Left behind aromas of cured meats and spices. Not as complex today as the Steingrubler or Pfersigberg, but then this really needs six or seven years to express itself.
