Very few Alsace families can claim 400 years of winemaking heritage. Rest assure you are here in very capable hands. Heading the 15 ha family domain certified Biodynamic since 2003, Jean-Baptiste and his daughter Laure (16th generation winemaker) elaborate all their cuvées with the utmost care. This Gewurz Les Natures is no exception. Master of Wine Ann Kriebehl sums it up: ‘’Honey, peach and honeysuckle create a very rich aromatic nose. The medium sweet palate amplifies them all and present them on an almost oily, rich and fluid body. A bitter phenolic edge provides backbone. Finish is full of peach, zest and freshness.’’ Voilà !! A most delicious snapshot of Alsace signature varietal at an attractive price.
