This is an incredibly unique parcel, owned by just 2 estates. Apparently, the vines are almost 100 years old, and possess an exceptional complexity and finesse. I’m geeked to check this one out. Tech stats: 53g/l residual sugar, 5.85 g/l acidity, 12.2% alcohol. 170 cases made from 90+! year old vines. Food pairings: pan seared foie gras; spicy or sweet/sour dishes; parsley crusted cheeses and Munster, Epoisses, Chambertin; spicier Asian and Indian plates; citrus tart desserts.
“The area of the vineyard is 1 hectare, this historical plot is split between two producers. According to a geo-pedological study made during the 1960s, this plot has been planted at the end of the First World War and is one of the two best terroirs of Gewurztraminer in Alsace. The vines face South/South-East and the terroir is marl and chalk with bedrock of sandstone and quartzite rocks. The result is great Gewurztraminer, very complex with finesse and lightness.”
