Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 1999

From a cooler, east-facing site rich in limestone. Tangy aromas of tropical fruits, honey, rose and spice; hints of noble rot. Sweeter than the last but not thicker; large-scaled and powerful. Plenty of fruit to go with the intense spice character, but still rather subdued in the mouth. Very long on the finish. 14.5% alcohol.

ZIND HUMBRECHT GOLDERT GUEBERSCHWIHR GEWURZTRAMINER 1997
03/27/2002

This wine, while excellent, has not the opulence and sexiness of the Heimbourg. It is characterized by what I think of as “pine tar:” an extremely spicy, peppery, resinous, sprightliness that almost nips at one’s tongue, and suggestive of a sugarcoated jalapeno going down one’s throat. The finish is almost fiery. Inhale this from your mouth into your throat with care – you might actually gag, it’s so full of peppery fumes. A very excellent wine; however, so sizzling that it’s almost dangerous. But, what a way to go!

About Alsace

Alsace has been almost pathologically ignored by the American wine-drinking public for generations--a real mystery in light of the great number of juicy, pure wines produced in this picture-postcard region of northeastern France.

Gewurztraminer

One of the wine world's love-it-or-hate-it grapes, Gewürztraminer is for many wine lovers the signature variety of Alsace. Its highly perfumed aromas of rose petal, smoked meat, lychee, grapefruit, and spices are immediate and captivating, although some examples lack refinement and seem a bit blowzy owing to low acidity and high alcohol. Gewürztraminer is...
