Kientzler "La Soif" Alsace Blanc '22
As with any wine, the producer and the quality of the farming practices are incredibly important. The Kientzler family has been growing vines for more than five generations in Ribeauvillé and the surrounding area. Domaine Kientzler has earned every accolade it has been awarded, and it is regarded within France as one of the leading domains of Alsace. Today, the Kientzlers farm almost 14 hectares of vines in Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Hunawihr, and Riquewihr, including parcels in the grand crus of Geisberg, Osterberg and Kirchberg. But quantities are so limited that very little of its production enters export markets, or to reviewers outside France. Simply put, these wines sell out at the domain each year at very reasonable prices with little fanfare, so we are all the more excited to have them.
“La Soif” (which translates to “the thirst”) is a blend of Chasselas, Riesling, Muscat, and Auxerrois, with an average vine age of at least 35 years. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for eight months on the lees. Dry, fresh, and mineral driven, with a range of citrus and stone fruit flavors, the wine is great as a pairing with lighter seafood, veggie, and meat dishes, or a board of your favorite cheeses, or as an apéritif.
