Francois Baur Riesling Herrenweg 2016
The Baur family has lived in Turckheim since 1741 and today it is the 9th generation of Baur family members to produce wine in the great region of Alsace. Pierre Baur is the son of Francois Baur, and the Domaine Baur comprises 27 acres of vines. Half of these are within the famous Grand Cru vineyard of Brand, making the Baur family one of the largest landowners in Brand (which has other serious growers such as Boxler, Josmeyer and Zind-Humbrecht as neighbors). Baur also owns vines along the plateau Herrenweg, whose heavier soils provide the wines with exceptional richness.
