This Gewurztraminer has a gold colour with a perfumed nose of lychee fruits and spices. The wine is rich, intense, luscious and the finish is dry and spicy. Textbook Gewurztraminer from Alsace, with a great balance that will age easily 5 years and more.

Wine Spectator

This delicate white, displays notes of orchard blossom, candied lemon zest and tangerine, with a minerally subnote that builds toward the finish. Shows good concentration in a dry and elegant package, with a long, finely textured finish. Drink now.

Score: 90. —Alison Napjus, October 31, 2011.

Wine Advocate

"The alcohol was so high on Gewurztraminer in 2009," explains Pierre Trimbach, "that we picked our own vineyards early, at the beginning of October, so as to arrive at a good balance when combined with juice from purchased grapes," and in the end, a "classic" 2009 Gewurztraminer - at 14.5% alcohol and for all that harboring 12 grams of residual sugar - incorporates the estate fruit that would usually inform reserve and Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre bottlings. Rose pepper, cinnamon, basil, and black pepper in the nose segue into a palate expansive and subtly creamy as well as pungent and piquant, saved from excess of bitterness or more than a small measure of heat by its supply of primary juiciness.

Score: 87. —David Schildknecht, May 2011.
