Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Goldert 2001

The Goldert vineyard was one of the last vineyard to be harvested (November 5th), with relatively little botrytis, but very ripe. The grapes are always incredibly perfumed in this vineyard. The facing is not spectacular, the slope is very gentle, but the pure calcareous mother rock always give a great ageing potential to this vineyard.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : The fermentation was incredibly vigorous. This wine did transform most of the sweetness into alcohol, to end up with a powerful balance, where the residual sweetness is almost not palatable. On the nose, the rose aromas are mixed with more smoky, earthy or even dry meat flavours. This wine is long and powerful on the palate, finishing quite strict. It will definitely evolve towards a much drier style quite quickly.
