The rich, intense and full-bodied character of Gewurztraminer exquisitely unravels on the palate, revealing an astonishing congregation of varied fruits, flowers and spices!
It allows your taste-buds to be fully awake and is ideal for an aperitif.
Its smooth and enticing character is like an invitation to exceptional sensorial experiences. So it’s only natural to associate this wine with dishes from around the world: it highlights and enhances the spicy flavours in Asian, Indian, Mexican or Moroccan dishes. There are several reasons for this aptitude. First off, most Asian dishes are made with sugar-based sauces like sweet-and-sour fish, pork with caramel or duck in orange sauce. The sweetness of these dishes requires a silky and generous wine. Furthermore most of these dishes are liberally endowed with very spicy aromatic herbs and spices which so beautifully characterise Thai cuisine (lemongrass, turmeric…), Indian (coriander, cumin, garam masala), Indonesian (coconut milk, turmeric, chilli) or Moroccan (cinnamon, cloves, hot peppers). Here Gewurztraminer reveals the extent of its intensity, its volume and its extraordinary finish. Far from fearing these powerful flavours, it welcomes them into a sensual, spontaneous and passionate swing!
On a totally different level, Gewurztraminer is superb with strong-tasting cheese-plate assortments. Munster, Maroilles, Pont-l’Évêque and Livarot have similar aromatic intensity which is perfectly matched by the fruitiness and weighty palate of this wine.
And finally it’s the long-awaited dessert time! Resembling a charming smile, it sports its unparalleled fruitiness to complement an apricot tart, chocolate with exotic fruit or a crème caramel. It’s also perfect with biscuits or cakes or any slightly-sweet desserts.
