Gewurtraminer Altenbourg Vendanges Tardives Grand Cru 2017

Grape Variety: 
100% Gewurtraminer
Tasting Note: 
With its dominant, intense and deep yellow reflections, this Cru is still young in appearance, with a moderately fat, pure and shiny leg. This wine is fully expressed after a few moments of opening; take the time to reveal itself to you. The bouquet allows perceive a very promising aromatic potential with suave fruitiness, with aromas of yellow peach, apricot, plum, mango, lychee and mullein flower. It is the kingdom of ripe fruit enhanced by a salivating and invigorating minerality. Tasty sensations return to us in a complex mouth, endowed with a full and generous attack, with a seductive acidity. It reveals aromas of oriental spices, bergamot, quince, orange blossom honey and Turkish delight. We can easily see the quality of this botrytised harvest. This proves to us the strong capacity of the Altenbourg de Kientzheim terroir to produce exceptional overripe wines and to impose its solar temperament. It remarkably expresses the terroir-grape variety tandem; it is a treat of a vinosity without gravity. It promises a very favorable development. A gewurztraminer on guard with a noble and willful demeanor who demonstrates aristocratic diplomacy.
