Gruenspiel 2011 - Domaine François Schwach & Fils, Gewürztraminer

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

For Christmas, I chose this delicious cuvee from Domaine François Schwach & Fils. This wine is according to me a good example of the best Alsace has to offer. Only that region is able to elaborate wines that blend so well elegance and sweetness. This wine is amazing to see, to smell and to taste and will perfectly pair with foie gras. 

 

Terroir

Hidden behind the Vosges Mountains, Alsace is protected from the influences of the ocean. It therefore enjoys a continental climate with very cold winters and very warm summers. A consequence of this is that grapes keep a lot of freshness until late and then ripen very fast during summer. That’s why even dry wines from Alsace seem a little sweet on the palate.

lecepage Grape variety

Gewürztraminer is one of the most common varieties in Alsace and can be recognized even in the vines thanks to the light pink colour of its small berries. Its smell is very typical as well: it exhales delicious odours of exotic fruits and on the palate it is recognizable thanks to its creamy texture balanced by a lot of freshness. Good to know: this variety is often harvested late in order to make amazing sweet wines.

lemillesime Vintage

As you will taste, the 2011 vintage in Alsace is especially typical as the gap of temperatures between winter and summer was particularly extreme. This phenomenon gave powerful wines perfectly balanced between sweetness and freshness. In a few words: an amazing vintage and a wonderful opportunity to discover Alsace! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine Schwach has grown slowly but surely. In 1950, François Schwach, a wine merchant passionate about viticulture, bought his first plots of vines and spent 10 years working on them before selling the first bottles. In 1975, Philippe took over and extended the vineyard by buying more plots, acre after acre. Still today, Sébastien, Philippe’s son, deeply thinks about each decision and never drifts away from the culture of excellence that prevails in the family.
