Willm 2011 Clos Gaensbroennel Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru Gewurztraminer (Alsace Grand Cru)

From a parcel within the Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru, this is a structured, serious Gewuztraminer. It has weight as well as sweetness, but it’s the potential and ageability that is so impressive. Spice and gingerbread notes, as well as fine acidity, lend complexity to the honeyed, yellow fruits. Drink from 2016.  — R.V.   Published 3/1/2014

Willm 2011 Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace Grand Cru)

With great intensity and structure, this is a wine that’s all about texture and potential. It’s expressive with white fruits and perfume, but there’s a richness that’s still to come. Drink from 2016 and see how the minerality and acidity will come into balance.  — R.V.   Published 3/1/2014
