Who said white wine doesn't age as well as reds? I do, I admit and it is true for most white wine. But the Alsacian wine - like great white Burgundy and vintage Champagne - age with beauty. I bought this wine in the Vintages Classics of the LCBO published in May with the idea to see the potential of old Gewurztraminer before I stock up in new vintages and burry them in the cellar. The result is impressive. We have a very refine wine still full and long but that has lost the really rosy nose that is so specific to that grape. You can still smell the flowers, but it doesn't take all the aromatic space. And for those who don't like the residual sugar in those wines, this one is dry, although still fruity. I don't often talk about the robe since I usually find it only useful in blindtasting to guess the age and grape, but the bright yellow robe of this wine makes it really pretty in the glass. After all, eyesight is one of the senses we use in wine tasting so... If you are curious or, like me, a big fan of alsacian wines, you can still buy it but there is only one case left in the whole LCBO network. It is 50 $ but you pay for the time it was in someone elses' cellar so you can drink it at its peak (it is my opinion that this wine is there now). The 2007 vintage is available in the SAQ network, but quantities are very limited too.
