Réserve Alsace Gewürztraminer 2018

It’s no wonder Gewurztraminer is one of the four noble grape varieties in Alsace, France. 👏👏👏 It’s uniquely expressive, perfumed, rich, and oily with youthful and pronounced aromas 👃 of lychee, açaí, papaya, mango, pineapple, also sweet spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and rose, stargazer lily, elderflower, and wet stone. 🤩🤩🤩

👁 This wine is deep gold. 👄 It’s dry with a modicum of residual sugar. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, and pronounced flavors, consistent with the nose, including notes of lychee, açaí, papaya, mango, pineapple, also sweet spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and rose, stargazer lily, elderflower, and wet stone. The finish is medium(+).

We’ve paired this wine with grilled vegan brats and roasted zucchini.

Albert Boxler, Gewurztraminer, Vintage 2018, ABV 13.5% (on the cusp of high alcohol).

Cheers to it almost being the weekend(?)!

One of my fave producers- always deep, nuanced but prices have become more prohibitive over the years, especially the Rieslings- May I ask how much your bottle was?@Vanessa

@Peter Sultan Of course! The price was $37.00. I bought it directly from Kermit Lynch’s e-commerce site.

Thanks@Vanessa ! Before Kermit, Boxler was part of Robert Chadderdon’s portfolio, before he sold it- his prices were rigidly set for Boxler. But these are exquisite wines, if not several notches more expensive, I think.

Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2015

Cherry liqueur, mushroom/meat secondary, comes together nicely with acidity driving it through. Not old by any means but would be even more enjoyable a year or two earlier in age — a day ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Les Tourelles de Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Quite aromatic & very fresh. Airy & light yet with beautiful ripe red & black fruit and some warm stones.
Very complete, harmonious & elegant on the palate - seamless with dusty ultra fine tannins and an elegant long finish.
This is drinking beautifully right now!
