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.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
Bright straw-yellow with gold highlights; slightly deeper than the Steingrubler. Fresh, piercing aromas of ripe citrus, sweet brown spices, acacia honey and licorice complicate candied apricot and canned pineapple notes. At once big and juicy, with zippy acidity nicely framing the rich, honeyed tropical fruit flavors. Dense and very long, finishing with more refinement and class than the other rieslings at this address. This year Genevieve Barmes-Buecher served the Hengst before the Steingrubler because the latter riesling has more residual sugar.
