Cuvee Michel Leon Gewurztraminer 2009 wine review by (PB)
Nice gold hue with fragrant tropical fruit and sweet spices.
Palate--Sweet, floral, tasty with nice aftertaste that lingers a bit.
This Alsatian wine was excellent--before tasting it. The bouquet is flattering and I was expecting a lot in the mouth but this wine is a good example of the importance of structural balance. It is terribly deficient in acid making the whole wine a rather unpleasant experience. It had so much promise but is flaccid and leaves one wanting to dump it.
I paid $10 for it at Trader Joe's but pass it up!
