About Domaine Leon Beyer
The Beyer family has been making wine in Eguisheim since the sixteenth century, although the domain wasn't established until 1867. Today, Beyer bottles the full complement of Alsace varieties: Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, Riesling, Tokay, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
(this is Beyer's top dry gewurztraminer cuvee from 2006, which means it includes declassified fruit from the grand crus Eichberg and Pfersigberg) Straw-gold. Exotic yellow fruits and a touch of honeyed botrytis on the nose. Fat, sweet and powerful; a very large-scaled and ripe gewurztraminer that tastes sweeter than its four grams of residual sugar would suggest. The broad, honeyed finish offers good length. Lacks nobility but would make a nice match for a curry.
