Domaine Barmes Buecher Gewurztraminer ‘Hengst Grand Cru 2020

$102.00 inc. GST

“This is an enormously deep and structured gewurz with so much smoky and earthy character,

alongside the lychee, pineapple and ripe star-fruit aromas. Pushes the envelope for this grape variety right to the limit.

Not yet at its best, in spite of the huge dimensions and very long finish. Not for the faint-hearted.

From biodynamically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.” James Suckling


Grand Cru of Wintzenheim

  • Hengst – Stallion

”Stallion” (“Hengst”) is a very fitting name for this rustic Grand Cru wine from Wintzenheim. Our 40 year old vines are south facing and planted on rich marl-limestone soils. The wines produced here are powerful, structured and spicy with good ageing potential.

Domaine Barmes-Buecher Hengst Grand Cru Gewurztraminer 2020

Wild fermented, no additions, biodynamic farmed. Serious site. Importer: QED

Wow, the potency and concentration! Slick, oily version of gewurz, but with stunning balance and a course of strong, minerally acidity the main part of that. Almost a breath-taking power here, with good grip in texture, huge roll of cinnamon spice, licks of salted nuts and a caramel-like element lending character. Superb persistence too. Very good.
