Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl 2001

The Clos Windsbuhl has a relatively cool climate. Thanks to its well drained and light calcareous undersoil, it is capable of ripening the grapes to perfection, keeping great acidity and finesse in the wines. The 2001 vintage was specially favourable to the development of noble rot. A small part was harvested as VT and the other one produced this wine. Slightly influenced with the botrytis and the richness of the grapes, the fermentation was slow and the wine kept some residual sweetness.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : The nose is already very open and reveals strong toasted, spicy and fruit cake flavours. It is long and powerful on the palate and does have a structure for ageing. The 2001 vintage is strongly dominated by the vineyard character. The botrytis and residual sweetness give some roundness to this wine, but it should evolve towards a drier style with some ageing.
