Gewurztraminer 2011 Grand Cru Pfersigberg Vendanges Tardives
Tasting notes : This intensely concentrated wine expresses its class through a wonderful finesse and elegance. The bouquet is that of candied fruit. To the taste, it is round and honey-like in its smoothness and powerfully evoking very ripe exotic and candied yellow-fleshed fruit.
Suggested food pairings : A perfect aperitif, this wine may equally be drunk following a meal. It will brilliantly pair with a foie gras or a desert containing fruit such as a “Tarte Tatin”.
