Becker – Gewurztraminer 2016 – Alsace Grand Cru, Schoenenbourg

The nose is aromatic, mineral, elegant and racy. It reveals notes of nectarine, rose and small notes of exotic fruit (guava, lychee) associated with fine touches of citrus as well as discreet hints of racy minerality and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, precise, discreetly tight and offers good definition, juiciness, a fine acid frame, straightness, tension, gourmandise, a small fleshiness as well as a fine depthness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of vine peach, ripe pink grapefruit and rose associated with small notes of exotic fruits (quenette, lychee) as well as discreet touches of mango, sweet clementine and vine peach. Good length.
