Domaine JOSMEYER Gewurztraminer "Cuvee des Folastries" 2016
Wine Region: Alsace - France Grape: Gewurztraminer
Tasting notes: "The 2016 Alsace Gewurztraminer Les Folastries is beautifully clear and floral on the nose with mineral notes, lychee and crushed stones. It has stunning acidity, vital and fresh, with good piquancy, grip and tension. Very long and tight. Gorgeous." - Wine Advocate
About the winery: It is now the fifth generation that holds the reins of this estate, founded in 1854. Situated near Colmar, the Domain benefits from an exceptional micro-climate and one of the lowest annual rainfall in the whole of France. The Domain extends to some 28 hectares and has always been cultivated with respect for nature. Towards the end of the nineties, the vineyards were turned over to fully organic (certified in 2004) and bio-dynamic culture.
