About Domaine Barmes-Buecher

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 golden yellow. Fresh peach and ripe citrus aromas are complicated by sexy botrytis notes. Ripe acidity gives the lichee and peach flavors good lift and precision and a peppery zinginess. This finish is very refined and clean, though there's plenty of structure and considerable residual sweetness here. Very elegant gewurztraminer, even though roughly one-third of the berries were hit by noble rot. The rare fossil-rich Muschelkalk calcaire typical of this site adds an iodiney, flinty element.
