About The Producer
Philippe Kubler (his Domaine, Paul Kubler, still bears the name of his father) is an intensely passionate, incredibly talented winemaker with a top-notch resume and, most importantly, top-notch wines. Beginning with the 2004 vintage, Philippe took over his family's Domaine. Domaine Kubler is made up of only 9 hectares (about 22 acres) and the average age of the vines is over 30 years old. He picks the grapes by hand and ages his wines in Alsatian oak foudres (big oak casks) for 8-10 months. The Kublers have been making wine here since 1620.
Terroir & Vineyard Practices:
The vineyard is located on an alluvial deposit in Soultzmatt. The vines are 30 years old. The grapes are exclusively picked by hand.
Pinot Blanc is genetically related to Pinot Noir and produces a tasty medium-bodied wine. Kubler's Pinot Blanc is loaded with lemons and other fruits with unmistakable minerality. You can even taste some spicy hints on the finish. Beautifully pure and dry it’s a wine that’s excellent to always have at the ready.
The grapes undergo a gentle pressing over 5 hours. Fermentation lasts for 3-4 weeks and then the wine is aged in traditional oak casks for 10 months. Gentle stirring of the lees takes place during the first two months.
