    December 6, 2016 - apricot, must and a floral component. Somewhat viscous, sweet and a bit plodding, given the low acidity. Interesting, but not my style.

    October 15, 2012 - Smelled of pears with an overripe fruit overtone. Deep straw colour. A bit of botrytis nature at this point a result of its age. A nice aperitif.

    December 25, 2009 - Brilliant golden color. Well balanced with a bit of sweetness. Served with Christmas dinner, and it held up well to the mishmash of dishes on the table.

    February 21, 2009 - golden yellow colored with flowers and spicy apples on the nose. zesty acid, but it's not too much. this is a plumper, riper styled gewurtz with a bit of sweetness. it's very well-balanced though, with pineapples, green apples and minerals. just a hint of spice. a good intro gewurz.

    (Lucien Albrecht Gewurztraminer Reserve) #2; COLOR-gorgeous and viscous medium golden; NOSE-extremely aromatic; sugar cane; mango; big time peach juice; may blossom; TASTE-very perfume-like; gorgeous white peaches; peach juice pouring out; may blossoms; lots of spiciness; raw ginger; very lively cinnamon on the finish; cinnamon covered peaches w/ ginger juice; very solid wine; enjoying this very much; great balance; high acid on the back-end; will last for 3 years and get better with age; I really like the complexity of this wine; I'm taken aback by how good this is; bringing thunder at $16 bones; W&S-90; GV-90+
