› The vintage

After a number of low yield harvests, the 2016 production was normal.
Initially, cool, wet temperatures slowed the spring vegetative growth greatly. Fortunately, the weather improved but residual moisture created perfect conditions for mildew. Extra vigilance was demanded to protect the crop. An August heat wave and subsequent warm weeks until harvest created hydrique stress in some fields but the grapes eventually ripened perfectly.
Harvest began on September 20th and finished 7 weeks later.
In the cellar, a few fermentations finished more quickly than in the past. The wines are well balanced, fresh and easy to drink

› Tasting notes

A prototypic Alsace gewurztraminer with plenty of lychee and spices on the nose. The palate is rich but not overwhelming, all thanks to the well integrated touch of sweetness at the full finish.
Excellent as an apéritif, with exotic dishes (curry and tajines), strong cheeses or fruit desserts.

"Chopped thyme, spun honey and lemon peel accents are layered with juicy lychee and melon fruit flavors in this silky, medium-bodied Gewurztraminer. Spice and smoky mineral notes drive the finish. Drink now through 2028" [+]
