Country: France, Alsace
Tasting Notes: Lively, very young colour, pale green, clear, remarkably bright, deep and intense despite its youthful age. The bouquet is frank and open, refined, elegant, perfectly aromatic and perfumed yet not exuberant. All in all, this wine is bewitchingly expressive, yet still full of freshness. Fresh pineapple, mango, passion fruit, white peach, ginger, rose, jasmine, mignonette, lily...
On the palate it is dry, slightly taut, juicily crunchy, soft, supple and nicely balanced. Its finish explodes with fruit and perfume, yet is not heavy... and it is perfectly capable of charming you into a second glass...
Varietal: 100% Gewurztraminer
Pairing: Serve it chilled at 8°C as an aperitif, with slightly spicy cuisine, Chinese, Moroccan or Indonesian, with lobster and crayfish tails, or with strong cheeses : munster, maroilles.
