Rolly-Gassman Terroirs des Chateaux Forts 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The firm of Rolly Gassmann, formed by the marriage of Marie-Thérèse Rolly with Louis Gassmann, is based in Rorschwihr, and in recent years has gained a reputation for consistently turning out fine, balanced wines year after year. Often referred to as Gewürz for beginners, this is typically a blend of around 50% Auxerrois and 28% Gewürztraminer with the balance made up of Pinot Gris and Riesling, however in this vintage, Pierre sacrificed a little Gewürz for a splash of Muscat. Open, distinctly grapey and spicy on the nose. The palate is broad and rich, with a botrytic, lemon peel edge and a long finish.
