Color

Sparkling amber.

Nose

On the nose, the 2005 Gewurztraminer Heimbourg Sélection de Grains Nobles smells of roses, rose oil, elderflower, lavender and boxwood. Accompanying this floral aroma are sweet and ripe fruits of peach, apple, pear, pineapple and mango. Sweet aromas of beeswax and honey round off the delicate aroma beautifully.

Palate

Sweet and incredibly concentrated, the 2005 Gewurztraminer Heimbourg Sélection de Grains Nobles hits the tongue. Its stimulating acidity and fine bitter notes, which remind a little of green tea, give it something piquant and demanding. Tempts to dream and seems very lively with all fullness and concentration!

The Gewürztraminer grape is more resistant to noble rot due to its thick fruit skin and this explains why dry berry selections of the Pinot Gris grape are produced more frequently. In 2005, however, thanks to the excellent weather conditions and the intensity of the noble rot infestation, the opportunity arose to achieve a Gewürztraminer Trockenbeerenauslese in this vineyard. Once the acid balance was perfect, the berries were specifically selected in the knowledge that the wine could handle a very high sugar concentration. The only drawback is that the production is microscopic . The nose reveals incredibly delicate scents of old roses, lychee, orange marmalade, candied fruit and lovely honey notes. The palate knows very well how to hide the sweetness behind the soft, velvety structure and presents, like the nose, a tremendous range of sweet fruits. A complex, harmonious Trockenbeerenauslese with a long finish and full of finesse.
