This Gewurztraminer embodies its variety with aromas of lychee, rose and candied citrus on the nose. On the palate, the sweetness from the grapes' residual sugar is well balanced by a fine acidity. It lingers, long and seductive, with final notes of rose and spices.
How to Enjoy
Domaine Josmeyer is a five-generation family estate. Jean Meyer led the estate’s organic and biodynamic conversion in the early 2000s, before his daughters Isabelle and Céline took over in 2009. The interplay of art, poetry and winemaking is integral to their Alsatian varietal wines, with Isabelle herself designing the Josmeyer labels.
