GEWURZTRAMINER RESERVE
Appellation d'origine contrôlée
GRAPE VARIETY
Gewurztraminer 100%
TASTING NOTES
This Gewurztraminer is located in the south/southeast, facing the slopes of Bergheim, where the soil is highly calcareous. The marl and limestone residues on the surface allow this naturally late variety to ripen evenly. In Alsace, rainfall in 2022 was particularly low as early as spring, and the average bunch weight was below the 10-year average, especially for Gewurztraminer, with production well below the average of the past five years; in addition, compared to the previous year, vineyard trends were accompanied by weather conditions unfavorable to disease outbreaks. The 2022 harvest, thanks in part to the well-drained soil, was early, but with grapes rich in extracts and perfectly ripe. In the first two years in the bottle the floral aromas are predominant, while with bottle aging the fantastic mineral hints given by the chalky soil take over. Traditionally it is enjoyed as an aperitif, with intensely flavored cheeses or with desserts. However, given time and maturity, it pairs perfectly with lobster. Gewurztraminer is very pleasant when enjoyed young, but it has excellent aging potential (10 to 15 years in the best vintages). As a reminder, Alsace is a French wine excellence, but it also holds the record as the greenest region in the country. The numbers speak for themselves: 10 percent of the areas are treated with sexual confusion (a technique that eliminates the use of insecticides), 25 percent of the areas are BIO certified to which is added another 50 percent undergoing Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3 certification.
