This is a full-bodied wine, with solid structure and a round fullness. With Gewurztraminer, the freshness is always more subtle than with other Alsace grape varieties. In tasting this wine, one rediscovers the complete aromatic palette, often with the addition of liquorice. Harvested very ripe, “late harvest” and “Selection de Grains Nobles” Gewurztraminers ranging from sweet to viscous, possess exceptional richness and extraordinary aromatic complexity.
A rich and exuberant aromatic palette characterizes Gewurztraminer. The bouquet is intense and complex, offering an explosion of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (notably rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, peppermint, cloves and pepper). Frequent aromas of honey and ripe fruits also contribute to giving these wines an incomparably rich nose.
