Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives Clos Saint Landelin 2017

Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives Clos Saint Landelin

The vine :

Located in Rouffach, the Clos Saint Landelin, fully owned by the Muré family, covers an area of 12 hectares (29 acres). It marks the southern end of the Grand Cru Vorbourg. Located at the exit of the valley, it is exposed to the south and benefits from a good amount of sunshine until late in the afternoon. The north and west winds ensure that the vines remain healthy until harvest time. The steep slopes of the Clos Saint Landelin require terraced cultivation. Its marl and limestone soil is particularly stony. The subsoil is composed of calcareous sandstone from the Bajocian period (Middle Jurassic) and calcareous conglomerates from the Oligocene period. These elements come together to form a very distinctive terroir. The vineyard is worked in biodynamic agriculture. The vines are tightly planted, at about 10,000 plants per hectare (4,000 plants per acre).

A Holiday Season classic, the Late Harvest offers amazing depth and great complexity. This Gewurztraminer is in keeping with all great Late Harvest. Generous and exotic, it will do wonders with blue cheese or fruity desserts. As a gift, it will please any wine lover.

Press :

93/100 - James Suckling (Août 2019) : « This has a fresh and spicy nose with a wealth of lychees, white flowers and white peaches. The palate has a very plush, rich and round feel with ample sweetness and a vibrant, long finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now.»
