Product description

Vinification: The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity, without any pumping or other mechanical intervention. After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature controlled barrels or vats (at 18 to 24°C). The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged extensively in our cellars until released for sale.
Tasting notes: A deep yellow gold colour with coppery tinges and excellent viscosity, unctuously rich and opulent in appearance, the attractive colour indicates its potential to age well. An open, deep, rich, complex bouquet reveals the character of over-ripe Gewurztraminer grapes, affected by botrytis (noble rot) under ideal conditions, with aromas of honey, figs, dates, currants, papaya, mango, baked apple and yellow peach. It is wonderfully well balanced, its ideally sweet and velvety liqueur character envelopes the palate without being either cloying or heavy. Extremely elegantly expressed and harmonious, such a result can only be achieved by a past master of vinification who has a long experience of Sélection de Grains Nobles wines.
Enjoy: Drink it now or within the next 10 years on its own, at 10°C, just for the pleasure of savouring a remarkable dessert wine. Or serve it with foie gras, blue cheeses, not-too-sweet desserts, fruit tarts.
