Tasting notes

12/2001 : The 2000 was able to be picked relatively early, keeping all the typical acidity and minerality of Gueberschwihr . The nose will still need some time to fully open, but the palate feels totally dry, with a zesty acidity and a normal to rich texture. The grapes were very healthy in 2000, so this wine should have a nice evolution over the next 10-12 years. Today, it is certainly a wine for seafood, river fish, light salad starters…
