This is a very good buy in maturing but still very much alive Grand Cru Alsatian gewurztraminer. Thinking that...

Beautiful, complex aged Grand Cru. Classic Gewurz notes of lychee, ginger, rosewater, peach, apricot, honey, spice and florality. Still drinking quite nicely despite 9 years of ageing. Off-dry with medium plus body (13.6% abv), a slightly viscous mouthfeel and medium minus acidity. Excellent length. The few remaining bottles at the LCBO have been discounted making this a steal if you can find it. Enjoyed it with a chicken curry. March 2019.

A 2010 Gewurztraminer from Alsace, France. This region borders Germany near Strasbourg. Peach, pear, honeydew melon, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper. At 20 g/l of residual sugar, this wine is off dry with some sweetness. There's also a bit of a CO2 spritz present.
