Alsace Gewürztraminer


Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre Alsace Gewürztraminer 2008

Très surpris de la qualité de cette bouteille, très peu d’expérience avec cépage. En bouche et au nez on se serait cru avec un sauternes, viscosité en moins, litchis, ananas et abricots confit, floral, touche piquant, gingembre. — a month ago

Mambourg Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2015

Pale yellow with nose of stone fruit and honey. Smooth on the way down with lychee honey on the palate. Not as intense as the zind humbrecht from the night before. Paired well with scallops and Dover sole. Another good Alsace product. — 12 days ago

Albert Boxler

Edelzwicker Reserve Alsace White Blend 2017

I love this Alsatian producer and am loving this Alsatian blend from Albert Boxler.

The term “Edelzwicker” in Alsace, France, historically -- dating back to the 17th Century -- indicated a wine made exclusively from a blend of the “noble” varieties, i.e., it had to be a blend involving Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris, and/or Gewurztraminer.

The term became deregulated in the late 20th Century, which explains how Albert Boxler now uses the name for a wine comprised of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris, as a reminder Pinot Blanc is not a noble variety.

Perhaps this wine is both a nod to tradition and a commentary on how things can change. Perhaps this beautiful wine is a pure reflection of what tasted and blended best from the 2017 vintage, notwithstanding the noble (or lack of noble) status of the grapes involved, still deserving of the Edelzwicker designation due to style.

This wine is medium lemon. It has medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas, which include notes of ripe white peach, pear, apricot, cantaloupe, also white blossom, honeysuckle, and wet slate. On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. The finish is medium.

Alsace Gewürztraminer 2015

Peach, honeysuckle, apricot, honey, orange rind, and petrol. Medium alcohol and medium plus acid. I love Alsace Gewurztraminers. This one could use a bit more acid and a bit less alcohol. — 14 days ago
