You might think that having a category above S.G.N. is more than enough of a good thing but the Fallers offer a second celestial tier as illustrated by their 2002 Gewurztraminer Furstentum Quintessence de Grains Nobles Cuvee dOr. Think of this as the I-can t-believe-it-became-wine category ... or perhaps simply "cuvee unbelievable." The schnapps-like intensity of peppermint on the nose here is sneeze-inducing and behind that lies an essence of roses. The viscosity is nearly gelatinous yet this barely-wine

Very concentrated, this SGN delivers citrus marmalade, honey and spice flavors, all well-integrated into the structure and texture. It's even tactile on the finish, with a pleasant tannic bitterness that tingles around the gums... Wine Spectator. A Gewurztraminer wine from Alsace in France. 2002 Weinbach, Domaine Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Furstentum Quintessence de Grains Nobles 375ml

Amazingly fresh and lively, this barely seems sweet, yet it's also concentrated and packed with flavor. Rose and tropical fruit notes are encased in honey, all presented in an elegant manner. Subtle, lingering finish. Drink now through 2022. 75 cases... Wine Spectator. A Gewurztraminer wine from Alsace in France. 2002 Weinbach, Domaine Gewurztraminer Altenbourg Selection de Grains Nobles 375ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The Late Harvest represent another expression of our beautiful soils, magnified by overmaturity and Botrytis. They are exceptional wines, remarkable because of their great aromatical complexity, of their rare concentration and their perfect balance. The Late Harvest (Vendanges Tardives) can be appreciated on their own. A foie gras is superb with a Tokay Pinot Gris or a Gewurztraminer Late Harvest. A Gewurztraminer would also be wonderful with strong and fat cheeses.
