Domaine Albert Mann Furstentum Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Gewurztraminer 2012

(11/2014) Observing organic and biodynamic practices, Domaine Albert Mann is viticulturally aligned with many of Alsace's best and most thoughtful growers. We tasted this dry wine with proprietor Jacky Barthelme (grandson of Alsatian vigneron Paul Blanck) and it really blew us away. Sourced from old vines within his Grand Cru "Furstentum" vineyard holdings, the wine is both pleasure giving and thought provoking. Classic Gewurz notes of potpourri, Asian spice, tropical flowers and fruits - including the defining lychee - all come into play. If you love exotic wines or are looking for the perfect pairing for Indian cuisine, do not miss this lovely and intriguing example of Gewurztraminer.

Domaine Meyer-Fonne "Sporen" Grand Cru Gewurztraminer 2011

94+ International Wine Cellar
(11/2012) "Bright golden-yellow. Knockout aromas of tangerine, lemon rind and spicy lemon jelly, all lifted by white flowers. Pure, deep flavors of citrus fruits and sweet brown spices are nicely lifted by refreshing acidity. No botrytized grapes here. This superb wine should age very well. These 40-year-old vines actually grow in the Obere-Sporen, which means Sporen du Haut (or "high" Sporen), where there aren't many owners. According to Meyer, the rich subsoil and small surface stones make for intense, profound, long-lived wines."

Jean-Marc Bernhard "Mambourg" Grand Gru Gewurztraminer 2014

(4/2017). "The nose is a very enticing mix of rose petal and peach, grapefruit zest and musky spice. The palate echoes the same flavors and is both intense and concentrated. There is residual sweetness making all the fruit flavors luscious and plump, countered by sprightly fresh acidity that results in an over all medium-sweet wine. The flavors are precise and clean and so is the finish."

Domaine Meyer-Fonne "Reserve" Alsace Gewurztraminer 2011

91 Wine Advocate
(8/27/2014) "Musky and sweetly perfumed rose petal and narcissus ally themselves with high-toned distilled-strength pit fruit and herbal essences as well as bacon fat in the strikingly attention-getting and already mouthwatering nose of Meyer-Fonne's 2011 Gewurztraminer Reserve. The silken-textured palate does not disappoint, its subtle sweetness supporting lychee and nut pastes that mingle with saliva-liberating salinity in a lusciously long finish. This well-proportioned, subtly complex example of its genre clearly outperforms many ostensibly superior wines including in this same collection, offering sensational value and promising to delight through at least 2018. It was picked quite early from diverse parcels, including some with young vines that had already attracted a blush of botrytis. Meyer suggests that this cuvee's relatively high volatile component has the advantage of helping to balance out the wine's impression of sweetness. As to why it proves better-balanced and more impressive than most of its single vineyard counterparts, bear in mind that especially where botrytis is involved, luck plays a significant role. Furthermore, we could have here further evidence that under prevailing climatic conditions and trends cooler locations that are still deemed less-good as a matter of tradition are starting to outperform ostensibly top sites."

Lucien Albrecht Alsace Gewurztraminer Reserve 2015

(11/2016) "Gentle notes of Damask rose seem to frame the generous, juicy peach fruit of this wine. The off-dry palate does not diminish this perfumed expression and instead boosts the fruit notes even more. Pithy grapefruit bitterness provides a welcome counterbalance. The finish is appetizing and aromatic."
