Reviews of purchase Domaine Charles Schleret Gewurztraminer Selection des Grains Nobles AOC 2000, 0.5 L
The wine is very beautiful yellow-golden color.
Rich, buttery, slightly aggressive wine, with sweet notes of jam. Some time after the unsealing of the bottle becomes more smooth, but the aftertaste is still present expressive spicy notes.
Expressive, very complex aroma with notes of mirabelle plum and sweet fruity notes.
Wine can be used as a digestif, with foie gras, chocolate fondue and oranges.
Gewurztraminer Selection des Grains Nobles - an excellent sweet wine, which is made from late harvest grapes, which is removed from the vines for a few weeks after the official start of the collection. Unlike data from the wine tasting "Vendanges Tardives" is the careful selection of berries, the most exposed to noble rot (Botrytis Cinerea). As a result, an enormous concentration of taste and aroma of this grape makes wines are very powerful, complex and heavy, with an outstanding finish.
Domaine Charles Schleret began its development at the turn of the 20th century. The first vineyards from which it all began, were purchased grandfather of the current owner - Carl Shlere. Since 1950, began active development after Charles became manager of the economy. Up to this point he had already had enough of extensive experience and owned 7 hectares of vineyards, which are located within the city of Turckheim. To date, the vineyards Domain Charles Shlere contain all the classic grape varieties that grow in Alsace - Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Tokay Pinot Gris and Muscat. As for exactly Muscat, here it should be noted that this is only the old vines, aged at least 45 years of age. One of the most famous vineyards can be called Herrenweg, which is located south of the city. It is characterized by well-drained soil with a high content of silt and gravel, is located on a relatively flat surface, so that the grapes cover the most sunlight. Soil warms quickly, which leads to a more uniform and early ripening. Approximately 30% of the area is occupied by Riesling and Gewurztraminer landing. The average annual production is around 50,000 bottles. However, in 1995 due to the very low yields and late harvest berries, volume of production amounted to only 25,000 bottles.
