Tasting notes of Gewurztraminer Organic Jean Biecher & Fils

 

Appearance : Its colour is intense, yellow with light golden highlights.

Nose : A rich and exuberant aromatic palette characterizes Gewurztraminer. The bouquet is intense and complex, offering an explosion of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (notably rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, peppermint, cloves and pepper). Frequent aromas of honey and ripe fruits also contribute to giving these wines an incomparably rich nose.

Palate : This is a full-bodied wine, with solid structure and a round fullness. With Gewurztraminer, the freshness is always more subtle than with other Alsace grape varieties. In tasting this wine, one rediscovers the complete aromatic palette, often with the addition of liquorice.

 

Food and wine :Typical of the wines of Alsace, Gewurztraminer pairs beautifully with spicy dishes and strong cheeses such as Munster, and equally well with foie gras and the most intensely flavoured aromatic herbs and spices. In addition, it is the ideal partner for Asian cuisines such as Chinese, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Thai and Indian...
