Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Hengst, 2002

Domaine Josmeyer


Tasting note: A generous and complete wine with a nose of lemon peel and flowers, with a sweet palate, which is quite flinty and even salty. Perfectly balanced with great concentration, with flavours of honey and citrus in a long finish.

Silky and seductive. Sweet and ripe, with lychee, rose petal and grapefruit aromas and flavours. The lively structure energizes it all, and it ends with a long, lingering aftertaste of lychee 92/100 - WINE SPECTATOR - September 2004
Excellent with Far Eastern food, curries. Goes well with cumin and aniseed flavours. Likes powerful cheeses (Munster, Pont-l'Eveque, bleu de Bresse, maroilles). Try also with Creole and Mexican cuisine or duck à l'orange.
