Gewurztraminer Les Princes Abbés 2018
The robe is golden yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.
The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. Sophisticated, we perceive a dominant of candied and overripe scents marked by exoticism : grapefruit, passion fruit, papaya, spices and ginger. The airing enhances these scents and reveals mango as well as a slight floral hint of peony. The nose reflects the perfect state of health of the grapes as well as a beautiful ripening. Its refined expression is a great pleasure without heaviness. Excellent varietal definition !
The onset in the mouth is moderately ample and mellow. The alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium with a frank liveliness, marked by a sparking note. The range of aromas is the same as the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits and exoticism : grapefruit, litchi, mango, papaya, passion fruit, spices, candied ginger and peony. We perceive a hint of firm and savoury bitterness. The finish has a good length, 7-8 caudalies, a frank liveliness and a persistent bitterness. Very nice nd tasty balance. The class of the vintage tempers the extent of the grape variety. Marked by a sophisticated and subtle aromatic palette, this profile is remarkable.
