Binny's Mailbag: Henri Kieffer Pinot Blanc Alsace
Hi C.K. - Thanks for the question (and the picture! - always helpful.) Unfortunately, it looks like Henri Kieffer Fils doesn't have a U.S. importer. Most estates in Alsace have very small production and don't often see wide distribution. But that doesn't mean you can't try some awesome wines. We do have a couple of particular favorites in Alsace Pinot Blanc if you're open to suggestions. Give these a try: - 2009 Gustave Lorentz Pinot Blanc has really nice balance and subtlety. - 2009 Albert Mann Pinot Blanc has a little more character, a little more crisp than the Lorentz. - 2009 Zind Humbrecht Pinot Blanc This is one of the best pinot blancs we've had. Made organically by a Master of Wine, the Zind Humbrecht really steps up the concentration and richness while keeping the great balance. These will all be in the same ball park as the Henri Kieffer in their flavor profiles. We hope this helps. Thanks for the question! - Binny's Mailbag
One of my colleagues had this wine in France and raved about it. Ive looked at your site as well as a google search on where I might be able to find it with no luck. Ive attached a picture of the bottle. Is this something you are able to order or know where I might be able to?
