Interview with Félix Meyer, Winemaker

Gewürztraminer is one of the most iconic grape varieties in Alsace, what’s the profile of the wines that you create with this type of grape? 

This is the most aromatic and powerful varietal we have in Alsace. It is either spicy, full of exotic fruits (passion fruits, litchi, pineapple) or is expressing aromas of rose. Gewürztraminer is characterized by its wonderful aromatic, rich and exuberant palate. A full-bodied yet delicate wine, which reveals a complex personality and dense structure. 

What’s the best food pairing for Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Sporen Vieilles Vignes 2015? 

This Gewürztraminer offers delicious roundness and inimitable fruitiness, which enchants desserts like a deep chocolate cake. It rolls-out a distinct character powerful enough to stand up to a strongly-tasting cheeses (Munster, Livarot, Maroilles…), which it coats in its rich and spicy aromas and simultaneously soft and powerful nuances. It’s sensual and enchanting character will also be ideal with sweet and sour or coconut-nut based dishes.
