Lucien Albrecht Gewurztraminer Reserve'04, Alsace, France

A generous and delicious Gewurztraminer from Alsace, France.

Technical Data:100% Gewurztraminer. Until 1947, this varietal was called Traminer, then a new varietal selection was developed and named Gewurztraminer. In Alsace dialect, Gewurztraminer means literally spicy. This Special Cuvee is hand-crafted from exclusively domaine-grown fruit. This finely crafted wine is made from old-vine vineyards from a careful selection at the time of the harvest. Unoaked.

Description:Bright Golden Color. Fresh fruity nose laced with floral notes. Full-bodied wine, lychees flavors dominate the palate along with honeysuckle, honey and passion fruit, very spicy mid-palate, luscious wine with a creamy texture. Long lasting finish.

Food Pairing & Service:Will be a very good pairing with all Thai and Asian dishes in general. Also with Roasted sea bass with tomato and fennel sauce, swordfish with orange, honey and soy or pork chops with spicy citrus marinade. Serve chilled.


Suggested Retail Price:$11.00 in DC
