Andre Kientzler Riesling - Alsace

Vintage: 2010 Region: France
Type: Whites
Winery: Kientzler
Tasting Notes:

Classic lime and citrus zest aromas backed by discreet minerality with a fine line of acidity running through to the end of the palate. Wonderfully pure and intense for this level. Fine precise and beautifully balanced.

A small family-run estate consisting of just 12 hectares of vines, of which 3.7 hectares are classified Grand Cru. Riesling and Gewürztraminer make up about half of the family’s vineyards. The family’ vineyards centre around the three Grand Cru’s which border the village of Ribeauville. ‘Geisberg’ is the smallest of the three facing full south, ‘Kirchberg’ is slightly larger with a warmer south-west facing aspect, and ‘Osterberg’, the largest of the Ribeauville Grand Cru’s which faces east south-east. The average age of the vines here is about 40 years.

“One of the most talented Winemakers in Alsace…..he has Riesling and Gewürztraminer growing in prime sites and it is what he manages to do with these that ranks his wines among the very best in Alsace. Although his generic Riesling has great class and finesse, his Grand Cru ‘Geisberg’ and Grand Cru ‘Osterberg’ are very much finer. The ‘Geisberg’ is the riper and more opulent, with a wisp of smokiness to the fruit, the ‘Osterberg’ is more classic and flinty, requiring longer in bottle.” - The Wines of Alsace by Tom Stevenson.

"One of Alsace's Super-star Domaines"
"The Kientzler domaine is a small family-run estate consisting of just 12 hectares of vines, of which 3.7 hectares are classified Grand Cru. Riesling and Gewürztraminer make up about half of the families vineyards and five other varieties also contribute to the Domaines output of approximately 6,000 cases. The families vineyards centre around the three Grand Cru’s which border the village of Ribeauville. ‘Geisberg’ is the smallest of the three facing full south, ‘Kirchberg’ is slightly larger with a warmer south-west facing aspect, and ‘Osterberg’, the largest of the Ribeauville Grand Cru’s which faces east south-east. The average age of the vines here is about 40 years." - Clive Coates, The wines and Domaines of France
