 Wine Advocate 87 points (May 2011)
“The alcohol was so high on Gewurztraminer in 2009,” explains Pierre Trimbach, “that we picked our own vineyards early, at the beginning of October, so as to arrive at a good balance when combined with juice from purchased grapes,” and in the end, a “classic” 2009 Gewurztraminer - at 14.5% alcohol and for all that harboring 12 grams of residual sugar - incorporates the estate fruit that would usually inform reserve and Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre bottlings. Rose pepper, cinnamon, basil, and black pepper in the nose segue into a palate expansive and subtly creamy as well as pungent and piquant, saved from excess of bitterness or more than a small measure of heat by its supply of primary juiciness.

Wine maker notes
The juice ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats; no malolactic fermentation to maintain as much natural acidity as possible. Two years of cellar aging.

Technical notes
100% Gewurztraminer

Food pairing
Delicious with spicy foods, including Asian and fusion cuisines. Also an ideal wine to pair with strong cheeses.
