"There is Edelzwicker and then there is the Kuentz-Bas Alsace Blanc, a step up in the hierarchy. It is bone dry with smoky yet bright citrus flavors––a delicious palate freshener." —importer

Blend: 60% Sylvaner, 20% Auxerrois, 20% Muscat
"Bright straw. White flowers, spices and yellow apple on the nose and in the mouth. Easygoing, rather simple wine offering fresh acidity and lingering flavors of apple, honey and spices; I find that the Muscat gets a little lost in this blend (60% Sylvaner, 20% Muscat Ottonel, 20% Auxerrois). Made with grapes bought from local growers with whom Kuentz-Bas has had long working relationships. Makes an ideal aperitif wine." —Ian D'Agata, Vinous

"Faint pear notes on the nose lead to a savory, earthy but crisp palate. The finish is very clean, even cleansing. This will shine with food. Best Buy." —Anne Krebiehl, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
