This excellent 7-hectare estate is situated in the village of Husseren and is run by Andre's son Christophe, who trained in Burgundy and Australia and who took over from his father in 1990. Winemaking has run in the family for over 200 years and Christophe is the 9th generation winemaker to take over the reins of the family estate. The vines are situated on the famed plateau of Eguisheim and include 2 hectares of grands crus vineyards at Eichberg and Pfersigberg. The Gewurztraminers from the estate are highly regarded for their well balanced acidity and restraint. The 'Reserve' is no exception.

Straw yellow in the glass. Classic Gewurztraminer aromas of lychee, ginger and rose petal. Medium-bodied on the palate with elegant tropical fruit notes and a spicy backbone. A fragrant finish with further floral notes. Altogether a balanced and graceful wine. Pairs well with Oriental cuisine such as spiced duck breasts cooked in pineapple and grapefruit juice. Also good with chili con carne or clafoutis (cherry pie!).
