Domaine Paul Blanck, Gewurztraminer Furstentum Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2012, noté 90
Pale to mid-gold. Lots of spice lift here, though the sweetness is balanced by a meat-and-bean undertow, a quiet vegetal pulse. Generous, soft, full, earthy-spice; relatively delicate in terms of the expression of its sweetness, but very complex in terms of the overall spectrum of flavors. Not the most "typical" wine on the table, but very good and very moreish.
Aromatic, advances, with litchi and honey notes. The palate is soft and easy-drinking, with well-developed litchi and barley-sugar flavors. Acidity is good, and the baance works well, even though sugar is high.
