Marc de Gewurztraminer
Marc de Gewurztraminer is produced with the skins of the eponymous grape. Since 2009, Marc de Gewurztraminer has been classified as « Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée ».
Tasting notes: This "eau de vie" is very complex aromatically. It unveils flavours of flowers, fruit and spices.
Serving suggestions : Marc de Gewurztraminer has to be served cold (8 to 10°C). It is excellent as a digestif but equally accompanies sorbets (lemon, pear, Mirabelle, white peach) very well.
Process: This speciality of Alsace is produced exclusively with Gewurztraminer grape skins. After having been pressed, grapes are de-stemmed. The skins are put in plastic tanks where fermentation takes place. After a first and a second distillation, the brandy is aged for 12 months in glass demijohns.
Alcohol : 45%
