Fallers' 2006 Gewurztraminer Furstentum Cuvee Laurence incorporates hints of mushroom such as were found in their Pinot Gris offerings of the vintage here allied to classic litchi rose petal and bacon fat. Subtly creamy in texture yet preserving the sense of primary juiciness and clarity that unexpectedly mark the majority of Weinbach 2006 wines of its grape this introduces peat fruit it chalk saline and bitter dark chocolate notes that offer complex counterpoint to the finishing sweetness and sense of liquid perfume. It can be counted on for a polished performance over the next half a dozen years - and perhaps even significantly longer although it should be monitored closely.

Bright yellow. Lovely clean aromas and flavors of yellow fruits and flowers. Glyceral and extract-rich with noteworthy finesse and purity for 2006 gewurztraminer. Very sweet yet suave and long and smooth on the back end... Bright yellow. Lovely clean aromas and flavors of yellow fruits and flowers. Glyceral and extract-rich with noteworthy finesse and purity for 2006 gewurztraminer. Very sweet yet suave and long and smooth on the back end with no harsh phenolic character. The class of this grand cru shows through here.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2008
A rich off-dry white that's balanced by light zesty acidity. Ripe flavors of pomegranate lychee and candied grapefruit peel turn tangy and fresh toward the honey-laced finish. Drink now through 2016. 80 cases imported. -AN
