2013 Charles Baur Pfersigberg Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1259928 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Lifted, fresh notes of peach on nose and palate somehow manage to pull off a wine of utter freshness that is soft, mellow and rounded at the same time. The peachy fruit pervades the entire palate which has just a smidgeon of residual sweetness and a helpful, balancing edge of pleasant bitterness. (AK)  (4/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Ripe Honeycrisp apple, spring blossom and apricot notes lead the way in this light- to medium-bodied white, with mineral and spice accents underscoring the fruit and lingering on the clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2017. 330 cases made. (Web Only-2015) (AN)

Additional Information:



- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gew├╝rztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history.
