Laurent Barth works with 4.5 hectares of vines based outside of Colmar where there is the highest concentration of Grand Cru vineyards in Alsace. Though this bottling is simply labeled Alsace, the fruit is actually from the steep, terraced slopes of the Grand Cru Schlossberg. The granite soils here show prominently in this Riesling, as the name suggests! Laurent farms using only organic compounds and employs biodynamic practices, and is extremely judicious with sulfur additions creating wines that are delicate and precise.
Laurent Barth makes beautifully balanced Alsatian wines from his tiny organic estate in Bennwhir, near Colmar. The 2018 Pinot d'Alsace (Pinot Auxerrois with a bit of Pinot Noir) is a lovely aperitif and a perfect wine for many fish and chicken dishes. Showing pretty aromas of pear, green apple, almond and lime-flower with citrus, pear, almond, honeysuckle and herbal flavors on the palate - really pretty, round and balanced with minerals and white fruits in the supple finish - this is a great value and a good introduction to the beautiful wines of Laurent Barth.

This is a maceration of Pinot Gris that we wish we had barrels of in our basement! In fact a blend of 80% Pinot Gris and 20% Pinot Noir, the wine has delicious red fruit, and tangy freshness. There's no tannin, so it should be a bit chilled. Will be a delicious accompaniment to a Thanksgiving feast, as it offers beautiful red fruit, sweet cranberry tang, and above all, gulpability! EL
Tout Terriblement is all Gewurztraminer from Philippe Brand, an up and coming winemaker in Alsace, whose family domaine is about 20 minutes west of Strasbourg. Aromatic, with integrated tannins. An impressive orange wine, with a brilliant bright orange hue.
A fantastic dry Riesling from Catherine Riss, arguably the hardest working woman in Alsace! Intense lime and lime blossom notes on the nose, with a perfect balance between density and acidity. Medium weight with stone fruit on palate and almost a bit of fat. Still mineral as ever with wild herbs in finish. -Eben
60% Pinot Auxerrois/40% Sylvaner. Honeydew Melon, stone fruit, white flowers on the nose. Though a touch volatile at first, it blows off after about 15 minutes. Lemon-curd and hay notes on the palate. Though overall a relatively soft wine, there's a precise mineral side coming from the sandstone soils that lends a long dry finish to the wine. -Eben
