Un Instant Sur Terre Alsace Pinot Gris Gewürztraminer 2020

Shay A

This was served during my annual WWC hosting. Typical format of sparkler, three whites, four reds, one dessert, all served blind.

Marcel Deiss’s son is the winemaker. 50 Pinot Gris/40 Gewurtztraminer/ 10 Riesling. 100% whole cluster pressed for the Riesling and Gewurtztraminer, partially de-stemmed Pinot Gris. Macerated for 9 months in different amphorae.

I don’t know how you attach a score to this. Undoubtedly an orange wine, which I normally don’t drink. In color, it’s almost a pink tinge of orange. Aromatically, this could be Alsatian Muscat. Incredibly floral with a perception of sweetness. Strawberries romanoff, kiwi, orange blossom up front but the fruit fades to a more mineral/less sweet profile with great acidity. Very unique and worth seeking out more.

Where all did you visit while in Alsace? It will be my first time to the region. I’m the cellar master for the Confrerie St Etienne, which is an Alsatian wine society with chapters across the world. We’ve got visits with Trimbach, Weinbach, Paul Blanck, Hugel, Gustave Lorentz, and 1-2 others. Looking forward to it!

We only spent a quick few days in Alsace before heading to our primary destination, Annecy in the Haute Savoie. We originally planned to go in May 22, but had to push to early Sep for family reasons, which killed the winery visits due to Harvest. We only went to Dom Marcel Deiss in Bergheim. We chose to enjoy wine in the Cafes rather than do the commercial tasting room visits at the big houses like Trimbach. Wistub du Sommelier in Bergheim was a favorite (2002 Trimbach Frederic Emile BTG from a freshly opened bottle when we were there), although I was sad to see it listed as 'permanently closed' when I checked Google a few moments ago. We had a great meal and wines at the 1-strar La Table du Gourmet in Riquewihr. Anne Humbrecht is the Somm and did a great job. We stayed at a rental owned by the Chef, Jean Luc Brendel, just outside the city gates and adjacent to the farm/gardens used for his restaurant. I can be much more helpful with recommendations for Savoie visits, if you ever end up going there. A few stories (and more to come) on our IG page (@steveandmisuk) from trips in May 23 and Sep 22. Cheers and have fun!

…and, other than Marcel Deiss (and Vignoble du Reveur, if possible), you are hitting the A-list of Alsace wineries!

Aromatico Adelaide Hills White Blend 2018

Light gold color. Blend of Riesling (33%), Gewurtztraminer ( 64%) and Pinot Gris (3%). Aromas and flavors of orange, white flowers, lychee, rose petals, pot pourri. Also a nice spicy note. Beautiful texture and a long and creamy finish. Just a touch of RS. Medium bodied. Lovely balance and quite refreshing. Very easy drinker. — a year ago

A Noble Blend Okanagan Valley White Blend 2018

Never disappointed with this Alsace-inspired blend from Okanagan which includes Gewurtztraminer, pinot blanc, pinot meunier, riesling and a touch of muscat. Not as sweet as one might think. Clearly on the young side but perfect with a steelhead trout. — 4 years ago

Réserve Alsace Gewürztraminer 2016

Loaded with aromas, rose, lychee, honey. Almost tastes like perfume with the tang on the sides of the tongue. The aroma leaps out of the glass. There is no hiding that this is a Gewurtztraminer. Enjoyable even if it isn’t for everyone. — 2 years ago

Bechtheimer Stein Spätlese Gewürztraminer 2017

Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre Alsace Gewürztraminer 2011

Amazing example of Gewurtztraminer exhibiting lots of oak, and a bright, floral bouquet. The 2011 is truly special. — 4 years ago
