Lucien Albrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Almond and treacle notes mix with fruit cocktail and candied citrus peel flavors in this ripe white. There's firm acidity underneath, particularly apparent on the tangy, smoke-tinged finish."Wine Spectator

The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann. The fifteenth century was golden era for the Alsace wines and it was during this period that the winegrowers guild of Alsace was founded. Each year, the most deserving vinegrower was elected by the guild of the winegrowers as Bangard, a highly respected positions. It was held by 8 generations of Albrecht's, between 1520 and 1698. Domaine Albrecht experienced a major development under the guidance of Lucien Albrecht, the father of Jean, to become one of the most important in Alsace with holdings in 9 villages surounding Orschwihr.

Clear golden bright in the glass, apple blossom, spring flowers on the nose, oily yellow apple, lemon custard with good acid in the mouth, follows to a focused moderate finish. Pan fried trout with apples, chicken nuggets, oh my!

    Straw bright, aromas of summer flowers, focused, with good balance in flavors of green tropical fruits, wet hay, wet stone, with minerals and lychee, with a moderate to long finish. A star at Thanksgiving!

    Melons and cantaloupe on the nose with some classic Alsatian rubbery minerality. Classically oily with firm acids. Fruit of white peaches. Strong peach and nectarine notes on the finish. Well priced.

    Medium acidity, well-rounded, spice (nutmeg?) a little bit creamy finish. Good example of why I like Pinot Blanc from Alsace.

    I don't normally think of gewurtztraminers as being "tropical" but I totally got Hawaiian Punch on the nose. Does not taste how it smells...i thought it would be very tart and dry. Was surprised but not blown away.

    Bursting with the aroma of honey, red roses and tropical fruit, yet dry and rich on the palate, this wine is lovely to drink on a warm afternoon by itself or paired in a meal with rich, creamy poultry dishes. It releases both to the mouth and the nose litchi, rose petal and spice aroma. I love this wine.......:)
