Dopff au Moulin Gewurztraminer Brand de Turckheim Grand Cru 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The fine art of Alsatian wine: since 1574, the Dopff family, from father to son, has dedicated themselves with fervor and enthusiasm to this divine alchemy born from the subtle union of native soil and vine. Wine growers, first and foremost, they uphold the rigorous ethics of their profession, which means that only natural wines from the best grapes are produced under their name and that they are lovingly tended following the traditional methods. The Brand de Turkheim 2005 Grand Cru's name relates to the locality facing south over Turckheim, the 'Brand' in the name means "fire" or "burn". The wine is a straw-yellow in appearance, with expressive, floral notes on the nose. On the palate it is delicate in the mouth but quite full-bodied . The 'fatness' of the wine harmonises with floral notes and liquorice. On the finish is an ever-so-slight hint of residual sweetness. A great accompanyment to Fois Gras, dessert and strong cheeses.

This whole range is an exceptional line up, both in price and quality, and a special mention should be made of the Cremant dAlsace, a leader in sparkling wines and invented in the 1800s by Dopff.
