Domaine Barmés Buecher Pinot Gris ‘Rosenberg’ 2018

$62.00 inc. GST


Our Rosenberg vineyard is situated in Wettolsheim on a hillside with diverse geological characteristics and clay-limestone and sandstone soils. Our vineyard parcels are mainly east and north facing and planted on rich soils where the vines flourish.


The wine produced here is ripe, round and elegant. Its distinctive characteristics will improve with bottle ageing.


Tasted a few months earlier, the Pinot Gris Rosenberg 2018 was essentially showing a fruity expression, but it also gave us a glimpse of a personality heavily influenced by the Rosenberg terroir.


Originally promised for Spring 2020, the Pinot Gris Rosenberg 2018 spent 6 extra months being honed in oak. As it matured on both its gross and fine lees, it developed a distinctive and assertive character. True to its terroir, the Pinot Gris Rosenberg 2018 is generous, broad and smooth yet shows an astonishing verticality that gives it a saline structure over a solid foundation. This is a sophisticated, subtly- toasted wine. Its long and well-built palate ends on a very fine and highly appetising finish.


With its assertive character, the Pinot Gris Rosenberg 2018 is the perfect accompaniment to simple dishes such as terrines, pan-fried mushrooms or risottos with ceps, as well as more elaborate dishes such as game or a tagine with prunes. And if you find yourself with a glass left over after the main dish, enjoy it with some Comté, Beaufort or Gruyère cheese.

Domaine Barmes Buecher Rosenberg Pinot Gris 2018
Posted on 02 October 2021.

Wettolsheim is one of the most delightful wine villages going around and holds a great memory for me – a morning jog in the rain through the town and out into the countryside. The jog thing, a rarity, the grey morning light and bucolic scenery spilling out everywhere… pretty darn magic. The jog, less magic. Meanwhile, here’s an organic gris from Barmes-Buecher’s Wettolsheim vineyard.

Traditional Alsace fare, oily texture, sizzle of acidity, rich scents and flavours of just ripe pear, some cinnamon spice, a faint honeycomb note. While relatively opulent this is refreshing too, and the finish tightens up beautifully and to a chalky pucker followed by mouth-watering tang. Feels detailed and structured – a white wine really cared for in cellar from good vineyard source. Very good gear here. Classic and classy.
