  • The fine, transparent texture of this Domaine Kientzler Riesling is an immediate indication of its mineral quality and of its subtle aromatic finesse with floral, fruity notes. This is an archetypal Riesling: tight, balanced and chiselled. It can age in the cellar for up to 10 years, allowing it to reveal its lip-smacking aromatic palate of white-fleshed orchard fruits and white flowers. The natural waxiness of this Riesling indicates its strong mineral content, bringing with it unparalled elegance and frank flavour.

    The Kientzler family have been winemaking in Ribeauvillé for five generations, passing the domaine on from father to son, theirs is one the most well-regarded domaines in the region. The vineyard stretches over 14 hectares, including the villages of Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Hunawihr and Riquewihr and is planted largely with old vines, as well as new stock selected from the most robust older specimens. In 2009 André Kientzler passed the reins of this domaine to his two sons, Thierry and Eric, who continue to produce a remarkable collection of wines.
