The 2007 Gentil reflects its Gewurztraminer and Sylvaner components in salinity, smoked meatiness, and subtle notes of morjoram, mint, and rose petal. The palate brightness of this relatively light-weight wine suggests its element of Riesling, as does the clean, faintly citric finish. Enjoy it over the next 12-18 months.
Lean, minerally, even a bit austere, this is the sort of crisp, mouthwatering drink that used to be more common in the Alsace section of retail shops. Racy lime flavors pair with riper notes of apples and pears, then finish dry. Best on its own, or perhaps with simply prepared lean-fleshed fish such as flounder or sole. Drink now.
