Barth 2012 Alsace Gewürztraminer Le Clos

What's an Alsace section without a Gewurztraminer! This one has the perfect level of sweetness. It's not cloying or sticky, but is instead balanced and fresh,  with white flowers and other classic Gewurz aromatics, a rich and textured palate, and great underlying acidity which lends well to the dreamy and majestic finish. Laurent is very careful about sulfur use, with minimal amounts added, so this may not be a wine to age (due to the residual sugar), but why wait? Drink on it's own or with any of your favorite spicy dishes.  Or try it with a trout pate or cured salmon, where the slight density and sweetness play off against the higher salt content and perfectly cushion the drier, smoked flavor of the fish. Lox bagels for Sunday brunch, anyone? Eben Lillie/Karina Mackow
