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 golden yellow. Very intense, exotic aromas of banana caramel, canned peach, crystallized ginger and apricot nectar. Then rich, sweet and dense on the palate, with honeyed, peppery tropical fruit flavors dominating. This is slightly sweeter and lower in acidity than the Hengst, which seems the fresher of the two wines to me. But both are beautiful expressions of the grape variety and their respective terroirs. Made from a younger set of vines, now 17 years old.
