Gewurztraminer is a grape symbolic of Alsatian vineyards which has no other equivalent. Gewûrz means spicy in Alsatian, which is indeed one of its main characteristics. Traminer means “from Tramin,” which is a small town to the south of Tyrol from where the grape originates. The two grapes were crossbred to give us the Gewurztraminer we now have. It is characterised by rose and exotic fruit aromas as well as associated spicy notes.
Thick and rich Gewurztraminer is one of the noble grapes of the region. Therefore it features in all of the appellations (AOP Alsace, Alsace Grand Cru, it is also processed into Vendanges Tardives and Sélection de Grains Nobles). The wines are perfect throughout the meals.

Gewurztraminer Bollenberg 2015
Bright yellow to the eye, the nose develops the very fruity side typical of Bollenberg, with its notes of peach and lychee. In the mouth the whole is supple and fresh with a nice fruitiness always on peach and lychee, all carried by a beautiful acidity. The sweetness present without being heavy brings fat and amplitude.
Semi-dry wine on the palate with a nice length.
Gewurztraminer Cuvée Madame 2015
A beautiful brilliant gold colour is the introduction to a very open nose of rose and spices. The palate is clearly sweet, supple with aromas of rose, spices, some hints of orange zest and undergrowth. The sweetness is important but the acidity gives it a certain lightness. The balance is well done and the length in the mouth is important with a touch of salinity at the end of the mouth.
Gewurztraminer Hueben Steinbach 2017
Passing on its brilliant yellow colour, this wine will make you discover a powerful nose that develops floral aromas reminiscent of rose, musk and sandalwood. In the mouth the attack is sweet and supple, suave and reveals notes of rose and cooked fruit. The finish is particularly interesting with a touch of acidity that brings out a very fresh side.
This wine has very good ageing potential (this is the case for most of 2017) and I look forward to its long-term evolution.
Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles 1994
A fabulous wine, its exceptional length on the palate, as well as its aromatic balance and concentration. This wine has white flowers, apricot and peach aromas. The ageing potential is also fantastic, thanks to its 80 grams of sugar and a very high acidity for a Gewurztraminer, it can be kept easily between 20 and 30 years.
Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives 2000
After admiring its light golden yellow colour, you will find a nose of exotic woods and spices with a touch of white flowers.
The palate is sweet and honeyed with a touch of botrytis, almond and orange. The finish is dominated by a gingerbread flavour.
Gewurztraminer Zinnkoepflé 2017
With a light yellow colour and a nose of fine spices and white flowers, this Zinnkoepflé will stand out for its fine and distinguished mouth, very delicate but voluptuous with notes of spices and flowers. The omnipresent acidity, rare on Gewurztraminer, makes it a wine that, while being aromatic, knows how to stay fresh and very pleasant to drink.
