Paul Ginglinger Grand Cru Eichberg Gewurtztraminer 2008

For reasons that I don't wish to disturb as a consumer, Alsace gewurtztraminer can be remarkably well priced.  Here we have a "Grand Cru" at not much more than $50.  Perhaps it is because gewurtztraminer has few longer term admirers.  A book waiting to be written?  Or perhaps the labels of Alsace are too easy to decipher with their rather non-French identification of the grape variety, front and centre.  Anyway, for good value, look no further than this impressive wine.


A typical gewurtz aroma of lychees with a sprinkling of spice.  Medium length, with a fresh and balanced expression of lychees, almonds and a touch of raisins on the palate.  Lovely drinking.  89 points.

Price: $55
Tasted: November 2011
