Willm 2011 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru, Clos Gaensbroennel, Alsace
At the heart of the Grand Cru Kirchberg de Barr vineyard is a unique plot surrounded by a hundred year-old stone wall. This is the Clos Gaensbroennel. The name, meaning the goose fountain, comes from the charming fountain topped by a stone goose at the foot of the Clos with pure water flowing that comes from a spring beneath the vineyard. It covers only 7 acres and has particularly deep and heavy clay-calcareous soil that produces some of the most exceptional Gewurztraminer in all of Alsace. The wine from this vineyard is carefully and traditionally vinified. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats and takes between 4 to 6 weeks. It is followed by a maturing on the fine lees for another 2 to 3 months before bottling. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points saying "From a parcel within the Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru, this is a structured, serious Gewuztraminer. It has weight as well as sweetness, but it's the potential and ageability that is so impressive. Spice and gingerbread notes, as well as fine acidity, lend complexity to the honeyed, yellow fruits. Drink from 2016."
