The cool citrus sophistication develops a fine floral freshness as it picks up momentum, minerality and a zesty edge. On the elegant palate flavors linger into the serious spice of nutmeg, white pepper, and ginger and a long finish. This dry, complex beauty is balanced and weighty, with more than enough tension and playfulness to keep things suspenseful. A treasure for the cellar -- worth holding onto for 5-15 years.
The restrained, deep complexity make this GG an ideal complement to Alsatian-inspired minced meat dishes such as ham hock terrine and Museau de Boeuf salad.
