2017 Charles Baur Pfersigberg Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1531901 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very fresh, elegant gewurz with striking rose-water aromas and a very polished, silky palate, on which alcohol or sweetness are barely perceptible. So sleek and bright at the long, straight finish. A food-friendly wine, for this often gastronomically challenging grape. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The earthiness of russet-pear peel surrounds baked peach notes on this wine's nose. On the palate the pear peel turns into a fine, slightly but pleasantly bitter texture that sits well with the almost luscious sweetness of the fruit. The concentration is immense, helped along by the viscous smoothness of the ripe peachiness. (AK) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Luminous medium-dark straw-yellow. White flowers, juicy yellow apple and ripe pear dominate on the nose and in the mouth, accompanied by a delicate hint of gooseberries. Finishes perfumed and clean, with a strong fresh licorice note. (ID) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

I love to recommend this wine for spicy dishes, or someone who just wants a little sweetness in their life. It has creamy, concentrated spiced pear on the palate (with an emphasis on spice) and the wonderful acidity of the 2017 vintage. This is an intense wine, and fully worthy of its Grand Cru designation.
