Wine Review: Lucien Albrecht 2010 Gewurztraminer Reserve, France
This wine was a straw color. The nose was filled with aromas of honey, floral notes, peaches, citrus zest and spice. The palate's flavors mirrored the nose with an addition of notes of ginger and along with a full mouth feel. This wine has some residual sugar which makes it an ideal wine to be paired with Asian cuisine or pork roast cooked with apples or candied yams with a bit of ground ginger and cinnamon added in the syrup mixture. Another pairing would be orange glazed chicken. This wine would also be good as an aperitif. Note: This wine was a sample provided by Pasternak Wine Imports http://www.pasternakwine.com
