Gewurztraminer Réserve Lucien Albrecht

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Gewurztraminer varietal is pink with white fruit and juice. It produces powerful wines with exuberant fruit character. The bouquet is intense and develops rich aromas of exotic fruits (passion fruits, pineapple, lychee), flowers (roses) and spices (pepper, cinnamon).

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

This wine accompanies aperitifs, Asian cuisine and exotic food, sweet and sour dishes, strong cheeses, or tarts and fruit based desserts.

VINTAGE 2016

Vintage with a relatively mild winter, hot and sunny summer and then a cool autumn to reach the maturity of the grapes intended for the production of still wines in mid-September.

TASTING NOTES
