Lucien Albrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Reserve 2005

Member Review by jfitz1275:

Lots of honey and honeycomb, beeswax and dried apricots on the nose. Off-dry on the palate, with just a kiss of oak and lots of honey and spices like allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. This wine is huge for a Gewurztraminer, and has a chewy characteristic. Voluptuous and curvy, it's definitely not your typical Gewurztraminer, it's pure Alsace. Pairs excellently with savory roasted meats, especially duck. Definite aging potential, drink now-2018.
