Do you sip much wine from Alsace? If you don’t, you are really missing out on some fantastic values. The region, located in the northeastern corner of France, predominantly produces white wines that are balanced and acid-driven. Kuenzt-Bas, established in 1795, is located in the village of Husseren-les-Châteaux. The winery sits at one of the highest points in Alsace and the vineyards stretch out over an area of 24 acres. I just uncorked a bottle Kuentz-Bas 2011 Pinot Blanc and was impressed with the harmonious flavors of the wine!
A blend of 70% Pinot Blanc and 30% Auxerrois from Alsace. Biodynamic. 12.5% alcohol. Retails for around $17.
Kuentz-Bas 2011 Pinot Blanc opens with pleasing aromas of citrus and white flowers. The palate is dry and features lemon and spice with underlying minerality and balanced acidity. There is also a nice saline quality that makes the wine extremely easy to sip. Clean, crisp, and very food-friendly!
