Careful with that axe

Eugène Meyer 2007 Gewurztraminer (Alsace) – There’s a hint of skin bitterness underneath the stone fruit, which I like, and some icy minerality, which I really like. The tradeoff is, of course, less intense and sticky fruit than the norm, but it’s still plenty aggressive…there’s no leeching that from the grape…nor is it entirely dry, though it can pass in a pinch and with the right (covering) food-sweetness. This is by no means a “great” gewürztraminer, but it is a pleasant one. (7/09)
