Tasting Notes

So much more subtle than the majority of Alsace Gewürz with countless delicate floral notes. Finally textures that are not only seductive, but also graceful and exciting like a prima ballerina's leaps. Very cool clean finish. Made from biodynamic grapes. Ecocert certified.

Score: 95James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2017

The 2015 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl is in fact a Vendange Tardive that was picked at 16.66% potential alcohol, since it stopped fermentation at 12.5% and 70.7 grams of residual sugar. However, Oliver did did not announce that he would produce a VT in the Windsbuhl, so he isn't allowed to sell this wine as a such. Even without the Vendange Tardive predicate, the 2015 is a great and age-worthy Gewurz that is rich, sweet and concentrated but enormously well structured. It is made for long-term bottle aging of 10, 20 or 30 years. Tasted in February 2017.
