Winemaker Notes

The aromas are evocative with notes of rose petals and exotic fruit. Slightly off-dry on the palate, this vintage unveils a bouquet of ripe cantaloupe, guava and nectarine aromas which are balanced with delicate spices such as ginger and cardamom. The finish is long and elegant.

This Gewurztraminer is versatile and can be paired with smoked salmon as well as ginger braised pork, South East Asian cuisine such as red coconut curry, Indian or Moroccan-style dishes. Also great on its own, as an aperitif or with foie gras and rich, mature cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
Wonderful nose of exotic fruit (more mangosteen than lychee) and tropical flowers, none of the specific notes dominating, rather the opposite. So succulent and elegant, the texture on the rather sleek palate really silky. The extravagance of this grape only showing a little at the flamboyant finish, where a salty touch lifts the ample body effortlessly. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 Gewurztraminer Cuvée Laurence is clear, bright and exotic on the nose that offers lemon chutney and spicy notes intermingled with rose petal aromas. On the palate, this is a rich and intense but fresh and tightly structured Gewurz with good tension and a saline, finely piquant and stimulating finish. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork.

At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill in Alsace stands one of the finest estates in all of France. Weinbach produces richly concentrated, fragrant dry Rieslings, for which the Grand Cru Schlossberg vineyard is particularly well-situated. Ranging from the delicate Reserve Personelle, to the intense, dry Cuvée Théo, the elegant, very dry, very fine Schlossberg, the rich and fruity Cuvée Ste. Catherine, to the majestic and full-bodied Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvée Ste. Catherine, each Riesling is distinctive. The rich, rose-scented, spicy Gewurztraminers from Domaine Weinbach are among the finest in the world. Ranging in style from the slightly sweet, rich and powerful Altenbourg Cuvée Laurence, to the stunning, full-bodied, off-dry Grand Cru Furstentum Cuvée Laurence, these are rich yet elegant wines with great aromatic complexity.

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsace Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsace wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.

Gewürztraminer, an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces wonderful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. Generally this grape grows well in cooler regions and its natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. Somm Secret—Because of a charming perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine for those who love sweet wines but want to venture into the realm of drier whites.
