A pale yellow wine with hints of gold, the complex nose is intense with floral notes (rose) and spices (pepper). Hints of ripe grapes. The attack is direct and concentrated. Well-balanced and rather dry, it goes well with tropical dishes and anything based on the strong Alsatian Munster cheese.
The Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Kirchberg de Barr Clos Gaensbrœnnel 2012 has hints of green, a discreet yet frank nose and is full in the mouth.
