Domaine Eugène Meyer, Alsace GewurztraminerRegular price €27.00
The intense aromas and full body of this not-quite-dry white wine make it an indulgent glassful to take your time over.
It's powerfully, invitingly floral, with honeysuckle, rosewater and ginger blending on the nose and carried through into an almost unctuous musk and honey body that clings to the glass and is sequinned with fresh fruit acidity.
This is a fine and involving aperitif, and a natural partner for smooth pâtés, a range of fruit desserts and mature (especially blue) cheeses. Its full body and flamboyant flavour palette also work well with exotic flavours, for example in Oriental cuisine when there's a balance of sweet, savoury and spice.
