Winemaker Notes:

The robe is golden yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and intense, and sophisticated, with candied and overripe scents marked by exoticism: grapefruit, passion fruit, papaya, spices and ginger. The airing enhances these scents and reveals mango as well as a slight floral hint of peony. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample and mellow. The class of the vintage tempers the extent of the grape variety. Marked by a sophisticated and subtle aromatic palate, this profile is remarkable.

Pairs beautifully with shrimp curry in coconut milk, a cumin poultry fricassťe with mustard sauce, or even a soft and washed-rind cheese.

Critical Acclaim:

92 points - James Suckling
"A prototypical Alsace gewurz with plenty of lychee and pineapple character, delicate spice and a satisfying balance between full, creamy body and an almost dry, spicy finish that's long and rather complex."

90 points - Wine Enthusiast
"Honeysuckle, peach and rose petal make for a perfumed nose on this wine. The palate carries these notions on a creamy, rounded body where they are joined by welcome freshness and flavor-enhancing, gentle sweetness. On the finish the wine is fresh, intense and medium dry."
