Domaine Barmès-Buecher is a family affair from the southern Alsace, striving to create the most expressive and powerful wines as Mother Nature will allow. Domaine Barmès-Buecher is completely biodynamic, an ancient and organic way of farming using no chemicals. This process, although incredibly time-consuming and expensive, allows the vines of Domaine Barmès-Buecher to be healthier and to produce riper, more balanced fruit than any of their neighbors.
The secret to these aromatically dynamic wines is the strength and vitality of the vines from which they originate. Only vines like these can create their Cremant d’Alsace, a bone-dry sparkling Blanc de Blancs. It’s a blend of Chardonnay and all the Pinots; Auxerrois, Blanc and Gris. Made in the method of champagne, with no dosage, this elegant sparkler is intensely aromatically, bursting with mineral laced fruit. The bubbles are so fine, the fruit, generous, layered, just perfect for any occasion.
As long as I can remember, the family never sends this one in for scoring, but it just so happens this year they did. Suckling unsurprisingly fawned over this beauty with a huge 94-point for the category, and he called out a, “super-silky palate you could fall into”.

94 Points, James Suckling
What a striking and enticingly floral nose this Cremant has! Then comes the super-silky palate that you fall into, as you would into a velvet sofa. The really long, creamy yet precise finish is the last element of this deliciously innovative style. A cuvee of pinot gris, auxerrois and chardonnay, disgorged on September 27 after about 2.5 years maturating in the bottle.
