Dopff Au Moulin Grand Cru Brand de Turckheim Gewurztraminer
Decanter World Wine Award Best in Show, Platinum Trophy Winner 97pts
"The granite hillside of the Brand Grand Cru above Turckheim is magnificently exposed, giving Gewurztraminer all the teasing and leisurely ripeness it needs to reach its aromatic apogee - as you'll see on first sniff of this generously constituted, almost unctuous wine. Billowing scents of lychee, rose and ginger are followed by a palate of great sumptuousness and feather-bed softness, lush and lavish though never cloying thanks to the resonant stony bitterness of the variety in this site. It's not by any means a dry wine but it's not a dessert wine either; instead this is a lavishly complete Gewurz for sipping on its own or partnering with rich pâté or cheese. Drink 2019-2022"
