Cave de Turckheim "Brand" Gewurztraminer Grand Cru 2007

The price of this has crept up significantly since the 2005 vintage, but it is still worth every penny.

2007 was an exceptional vintage for Alsace, and I needed an impressive white to display the merits of white wine to a visiting red-loving friend of mine.

I think it did the trick. It had concentrated floral aromas, super-velvety texture and a lovely rich, complex palate. I wasn't tasting it side by side with the 2005, but from what I can recollect the 2007 may have been slightly lighter and more elegant.
