Pierre Sparr 2005 Gewurztraminer

  • Area: France, Alsace
  • Grape: Gewurztraminer
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black; 90 Dilettante; 90
Description: Pierre has been making wine sine 1680 and it shows. This dryer than expected gewurtz has style. The nose has wonderful aromas of roses and lychee nuts with a hint of spice. It attacks with a hint of sweetness then finishes off dry with notes of grapefruit peel and pear. On the palate it's quite lively yet soft and silky. This wine has focus. We really liked it.
Food Pairing: turkey, Asian or as an aperitif
