Tasting Notes

"For Gewurztraminer," opines Olivier Humbrecht, "you need a long, long growing season, and then a burst of heat at the end, like a creme brulee," an image one might want to bear in mind in approaching his 2007 Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim Vieilles Vignes, which ascended to 15.8% alcohol and still left behind 42 grams of residual sugar. The extra element of botrytis managed it seems to concentrate the acids as well, so that there is enough sense of freshness to enliven this hugely rich, voluminous, stunningly succulent palate. Somehow, I searched in vain for heat. Mint chocolate, litchi, rose petal, licorice, caramel, and honey all play prominent roles in this gaudy extravaganza. I expect it to be worth following for 15 or more years, but one should monitor it in case alcoholic heat were to emerge.
