Professional Wine Reviews for Alsace Willm Gewurztraminer Reserve Cuvee Emile 2017

Rated 88 by Wine Enthusiast
Peach and pear on the nose have a touch of honey. That honeyed, juicy nature comes into full view on the rounded but fresh palate. It's a joyful, medium-sweet wine with seemingly endless fruit.
Winery
Its colour is intense, yellow with light golden highlights. The pink almost red colour of the grapes naturally influences the colour of the wine. A rich and exuberant aromatic palette characterizes Gewurztraminer. The bouquet is intense and complex, offering an explosion of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (notably rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, cinnamon, peppermint, cloves and pepper). Frequent aromas of honey and ripe fruits. The most aromatic wine, very floral (rose petal), exotic fruit cocktail, lytchee, spices like coriander seeds, confied ginger, very long finish.

Winery Alsace Willm

Region: Alsace

Alsace is a particularly fascinating region of France when it comes to wine and wine culture. The long, slender Germanic style bottles we often see coming out of Alsatian wineries have become iconic of the region's wine industry, and for centuries, such bottles have been the favorites of the crowned heads of Europe. Riesling and Gewurztraminer have always been the two primary grapes of Alsace, however, there are nine different varietals permitted by French law, most of them being used to make white wine. Alsace produces over a hundred million liters of wine per year, which are exported across the globe and enjoyed by people seeking a fine wine offering something a little different. As such, Alsace is an important global wine producing region, with a character and set of flavors and features which are all its own.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
