"Damask rose and crushed elder leaf make for a subtle yet aromatic topnote on the nose of this wine. The palate comes in with gentle, medium sweetness that accentuates peachy juiciness at the core and rounds things out with smooth, candied-lemon flavor. Freshness balances this harmonious wine with an endless, off-dry finish. Drink 2025–2040. -Anne Krebiehl MW" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The rich, rose-scented, spicy Gewurztraminers from Domaine Weinbach are among the finest in the world. Ranging in style from the slightly sweet, rich and powerful Altenbourg Cuvée Laurence, to the stunning, full-bodied, off-dry Grand Cru Furstentum Cuvée Laurence, these are rich yet elegant wines with great aromatic complexity.

In exceptional years, when the harvest reaches extreme ripeness, the Fallers produce opulent sweet wines from late harvest grapes, the stunning “Vendanges Tardives”, the exotic and nectar-like “Selections de Grains Nobles”, and the fabulously rich “Cuvée d’Or Quintessence de Grains Nobles”.
