Really lush, but excellent under the right circumstances. Those would likely be very porky, cheesy, salty, oily or spicy circumstances.

2014. This bottle is a must try for anyone learning about what Gewurztraminer can/should taste like.

Love this winemaker. I had the pleasure of meeting Jean at his winery. Melon & honeysuckle, ripe pear on nose. Palate reminds me of my German grandmother's Rumtopf! Thank you Jean for sharing your lovely wines. I can't wait to visit Alsace again. 2012 vintage.

Nice golden color. High RS is well balanced with nice acidity. Beautifully floral, honey suckle,white flowers,sweet Mayer lemon,peach marmalade with touch of fennel and cardamon on end.
It was going so great with lamb special served over Mayer lemon pure sauce!

Probably a lil more expensive than it's worth but it's damn good.
