- Item #: i_351602Bottle Size: 750mlWine Advocate: 93James Suckling: 94JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS - "This creamy and dreamy gewurztraminer is very seductive with a great lightness of touch. Wonderfully fresh and bright at the long, spicy finish, which has a slight bitter-sweet twist. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes."
VINOUS 94 POINTS - "Bright yellow gold. Aromas of peach, melon and honeysuckle are complicated by a mineral element on the captivating nose. Dense and creamy, offering terrific depth to the peach, mango and clove flavors. Finishes with excellent clarity and cut. A beauty; I like how this displays a terrific balance of Gewürztraminer richness, sweetness and energy. In fact, much richer and sweeter than the Cuvée Théo, but also better balanced. Weinbach did not bottle their Gewürz Altenbourg and Gewürz Mambourg in 2017 because of a frost episode that greatly reduced production volumes, and so all those Grand Cru grapes were used to make this wine. The Cuvée Laurence is normally Weinbach’s best Gewürz anyway (in fact, I think it’s the estate’s best dry wine), but in 2017 it’s even better than usual."
WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "From the bottom of the Altenbourg, the 2017 Alsace Gewurztraminer Cuvée Laurence offers intense and generous yet bright fruit on the nose. Creamy, dense and concentrated, this is a very elegant and structured Gewurtz with a long finish."
- Item #: i_334257Bottle Size: 750MLWine Spectator: 92Wine Enthusiast: 94The robe is light golden yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows brilliant youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. Sophisticated, we perceive a dominant of exotic scents : grapefruit, banana, litchi, papaya and flowers (rose). The airing enhances these scents and reveals mango, passion fruit, spices and candied ginger. The superb quality of the raw material gives a brilliant, precise and distinguished nose. It radiates the expression of this excellent grape variety. The onset in the mouth is dense, fleshy and mellow. It shows a superb silky touch and a full-bodied alcohol support. The wine evolves on a medium with a frank liveliness, marked by a sparkling note. The range of flavours is in line with that of the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit), exotic fruits (litchi, banana, mango, papaya), flowers (rose) and spices (candied ginger). We perceive a hint of savoury varietal bitterness. The finish has a long length, 9-10 caudalies, and a frank liveliness and a persistent bitterness. The superb structure is savoury. The rich and mellow body is admirably set against the edge and the refreshing firmness. All bathed in sophisticated aromatic flavours.

The palate is very attractive and succulent with such impressive concentration of lychees. Some honey and pastry, too. This is stunning. Full and gently sweet. Drink or hold."
