What to pair Gewurztraminer from Alsace with?

The Gewurztraminer is the grape variety of the aperitif par excellence. It can accompany your exotic, spicy and Asian dishes. It will sublimate your strong and powerful cheeses (Munster, Maroilles and Fourmes), but also your dry cheeses such as old Comtés, matured Gouda and Parmesan. These wines can also finish your meals by accompanying your desserts.

Of course, Gewurztraminer can be enjoyed on its own. This is particularly the case for Gewurztraminer Grand Cru, Sélection de Grain Nobles or Vendanges Tardives.

The Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé

The Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé is exposed to the south and southeast, on the hillsides of Soultzmatt and Westhalten, with an altitude ranging from 200 to 400 meters. It covers 71 hectares. The circular trend of the valley (Vallée Noble) and the protection of the Petit Ballon make this terroir a low rainfall area. This area benefits from a hot and arid micro-climate with a calcareous soil from the Triassic with Mediterranean and Caspian flora and fauna. It is made up of Coquillier limestone from the Muschelkalk and sandstone inclusions.

This terroir has a name that breaks down naturally with "Zinn" or "Sonne" for the sun and "Koepflé" or "Kopf" for head in German. This gives rise to the translation "Mount of the Sun", because the soil is very strongly exposed to the sun. The name would also come from "Sinnele", small fossilized gastropods very present on this soil.

Our Gewurztraminer unfolds very well here. This terroir produces Gewurztraminer wines with a rich spicy and full-bodied bouquet. These wines are destined to become wines for aging and gastronomy.

The Grand Cru Pfingstberg

The Grand Cru Pfingstberg, facing south-east on the slopes of Orschwihr, covers 28.15 hectares. It is located exactly between the Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé to the north and the Grand Cru Spiegel. Located between 270 and 370 meters above sea level, it is divided into two distinct parts: the lower part and the upper part. The upper part is composed of limestone and micaceous sandstone. The lower part is composed of clay and sandstone. This lower part of the terroir is particularly suited to the Gewurztraminer grape variety, which brings great richness. This Grand Cru gives the wines a great typicity intensified by particularly floral aromas and a great freshness. It gives birth to wines of great ageing. This soil allows a favorable development of botrytis.

The Lippelsberg terroir 

The Lippelsberg is located at the birth of the Grand Cru Pfingstberg. It has been exploited since 1287 by the Bishopric of Strasbourg, the largest owner of vineyards in Alsace under the Ancien Régime. Therefore, it is one of the first terroirs in Alsace to be named after its "place of origin". Its sunny eastern exposure and its rich soil give the wines a lot of substance because it comes from a clay-limestone soil.
