Shop for Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer is a highly aromatic, perfumed white (gewürz means “spiced” in German) that has been cultivated for thousands of years. Gewurz (most often referred to by its shortened name) is the most widely planted variety in the Alsace region of France, where it reaches the height of its expression. While Gewurz can be a sweet wine (in late-harvest wines labeled Vendange Tardive), the bulk of it is fermented dry. In its pedestrian form, Gewürz is meant to be drunk young when the exotic fruit flavors are at their peak; not so in Alsace where these heady wines possess a concentrated structure capable of long aging.

One of the most distinctive white wine varieties, Gewürz is so heavily scented that it smells deceivingly sweet, even though it tastes dry. Deeply colored, low in acidity, but high in alcohol, this full-bodied white is well-endowed with explosive flavors of litchis, roses, Asian pears and the telltale pie “spice” duo of cloves and nutmeg.

The Anderson Valley of California, parts of Oregon and Washington, and New York’s Finger Lakes are regions producing excellent domestic versions.

    A white with lots of dried fruit, green tea, caramel and spice. Full body, off dry and a flavorful finish. Excellent. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2016
    Medium-dark yellow. Deep aromas of orange oil, grapefruit, cinnamon and nutmeg. Rich and dense, with an opulent mouthfeel, but then surprisingly austere on the long finish. This wine tastes off-dry (only 27 g/l residual sugar) and I liked its refined personality, but those who appreciate the variety’s usual explosive, opulent character may be disappointed. In an effort to make the best possible entry-level Gewürztraminer, Bott declassified the Sonnenglanz grand cru into this wine.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Sep 2015
    The 2013 Gewurztraminer Les Élements contains 100% Grand Cru Fürstentum, 100% Grand Cru Sonnenglanz and some grapes of the Grand Cru Sporen. Jean-Christophe Bott has downgraded his crus because he found the aromas “too explosive, too aromatic, like mango juice.” The wine might have become too broad in a couple of years, he feared, saying that “when the vintage is not that generous it does not make sense to produce a medium Grand Cru. It’s better to produce a good regular Gewurztraminer.” The wine starts clear, fresh and very intense in its aromatic, rather bright fruit flavors of oranges, mangoes and some coolish stone and herbal/floral aromas. Rich and round on the palate, this Traminer shows a delicate acidity and a nice structure which make this a very elegant, finesse-full and well balanced cru which reveals a good length with some bitter flavors due to “10 or 20 per cent of noble rot.” Quite dry in taste this full-flavored wine seems lighter than it really is.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2015
    This wine offers both acidity and spice. A fine line of freshness cuts through the natural flamboyance of Gewurztraminer leaving a dry, pepper and apple aftertaste. The wine is ready, although it will be even better from 2016.
