Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl 2002

The Clos Windsbuhl is located on the top left part of the village Hunawihr, bordering the small road that goes towards Riquewihr. The soil and climate being less warm than most calcareous vineyards around Turckheim or Wintzenheim, the wines are often more delicate, with more acidity and exotic aromas. In 2002, the botrytis was enough important to change slightly the style of the wine, but not sufficient to allow us to produce a vendange tardive.

Tasting notes

01/2004 : The nose is delicately divided between minerals, spices and rose/litchi aromas. The palate is generous but also well balanced with the typical 2002 freshness. The slightly slower fermentation in this wine kept more residual sweetness apparent on the palate. Like the pinot-gris, this wines needs to be opened some time before serving. Round and elegant finish.
