Riesling: it generally sports citrus fruit notes and an intense but fine nose which slowly evolves with the years, maintaining its finesse, even after ageing for more than 10 years. The palate is powerful and structured by subtle acidity.
Pinot Gris: its nose it slightly smoky and is distinguished by notes of ripe fruits. Its great acidity makes it a wine for fine dining, even able to support some residual sugar.
Gewurztraminer: this wine has a complex but fine nose. In general after ageing notes of spices, liquorice, roses, jasmine, menthol, truffle, honey and beeswax can be found. The palate is very harmonious and fresh, including the Vendanges Tardives and Sélections de Grains Nobles. A lengthy and fresh whole.
Muscat: a very fruity note, typical of the Muscat grape and the minerality of this Grand Cru.
The intensity of Kirchberg de Barr wines reveals the grandeur of this Grand Cru
Their structure is firm, imbued with a vigorous and refined acidity. When tasted, this freshness gives the sensation that the wine forms a base on the tongue allowing its aromatic complexity to be released. The wine length extends the intense line drawn in the middle mouth and boosts the expression of powerful minerality.
Cette ossature marque chaque cépage. This structure is the same in each variety. Riesling wonderfully reveals its natural tautness and its wines display a rare precision. Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer generously provide a full-bodied impression and are marked by notes of yellow fruits for the first and by various-nuanced roses for the second.
