AOC Alsace Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles 2008
Bright golden yellow, it shines in the glass, meanwhile opulent smells of orange jam, ripe pears, mandarin bowl, as well as crystallized ginger sweet-talk to the nose. Aromas of ripe melon, rosewood and beeswax follow on. With some air the smell opens and excessive notes of candied orange peel and cumquat would proceed the epicure. In the palate as well sumptuously, this wine has a perfect balance. Rich in extract, with juicy excessive sweetness and fruity acid, which guarantees as a counter pole for long freshness. This pleasure is crowned by a long fruity aftertaste marked by delicate bitter aromas of orange liqueur. An expressive fruity giant done for the eternity.
Food pairing: foie gras with Gewurztraminer jelly, caramelized orange-tart, lukewarm little poppy cake on cumquat ragout, Crêpes with roasted almonds, orange creme and maple syrup, white chocolate mousse with orange crème, fowl curry with baked banana and roasted pineapple.
