Joseph Gruss & Fils Gewurztraminer Eichberg Grand Cru 2008

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Vintage: 2008
Type: Gewürztraminer
Country: France – Alsace – Eguisheim

None of Andre’s wines disappoint me but you can believe me when I say this is a lovely wine, full stop. The flavours of citrus fruit and lychees fill the mouth nicely. It is a sweet wine but not overpowering.  There is a distinctly thick and creamy texture on the tongue. Gorgeous.

I imagine myself holding a picnic in a field of wild flowers, absorbing the sun’s warmth, enjoying a variety of oriental dishes … this wine would be the main event of my picnic.

This is young wine with a bright yellow colour. When swishing it around the glass, one notices very short legs, meaning that it lower in alcoholic content. Its nose has notes of elderflower and exotic fruit. When tasting the wine, one detects something flowery and also lychee fruit. The consistency of the wine is somewhat thick but not heavy. This is a crisp wine due to its acidity. This bottle can be laid down on rack for some time because it will take some time to mature.
