Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Gueberschwihr 2001

Harvested from our vineyards located around the village of Gueberschwihr, outside the Grand Cru Goldert, this gewurztraminer was perfectly healthy. The fermentation was vigorous (only one month), like most wine from the same grape variety in 2001. This will be our last wine in this vineyard. We exchanged it against another vineyard located in the Goldert (unfortunately smaller!).

Tasting notes

01/2003 : This wine possess the classic rose aroma and spicy structure, without vulgarity and is almost austere. Elegantly balanced, it appears basically dry on the palate. The mouth is rich, without the roundness of previous vintages.
