Fresh cloves and white pepper. Apple and pear too. Full body, intense fruit with an oily texture yet fresh and vivid. White flowers too. Drink now.

The 2015 Gewurztraminer Cuv?e des Seigneurs Ribeaupierre is from the Muehlforst, Trottacker, Mandelberg Grand Cru and Altenberg Grand Cru. The wine opens super clear, fresh, pure and complex on the nose and also on the palate. This 2015 is not enormously concentrated, rich or complex, but elegant, fresh and minerally, pretty food-friendly and provided with good grip, finesse and stimulating salinity.
Drink Date: 2020 – 2030
The fruitiest and the spiciest of the varietals a unique wine. It is in Alsace that this grape variety reaches the height of perfection. Its dry personality makes it ideal as an aperitif and it pairs extremely well with specialty cuisine with pronounced flavors. Gewurztraminer is a fine accompaniment for fish or seasoned meats, spicy and exotic dishes, soft cheeses (such as the famous Munster), and a plethora of desserts.
