The Sélections de Grains Nobles (an appellation since 1984) are wines, from old vines, made from over-ripe grapes picked several weeks after harvesting. More conentrated than the Vendanges Tardives, they are fine sweet wines, which keep a freshness and a natural acidity in a unique flavor for the world. Cuvée Anne is a rare, mythical wine, which is still hugely popular.

Winemaker notes

The colour is golden yellow with light green reflections, of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine is agreeably young.

The nose is open, pleasant and intense. Candied, we perceive a dominant of exotic fruity scents like banana, mango, passion fruit, lychee and floral notes like rose. Airing enhances the previous aromas and reveals spices like ginger and cumin. The nose is splendid. It expresses with great precision the beautiful overripe varietal complexity. Exemplary.

The onset in the mouth is dense, fleshy and liquorous. With a superb silky sensation, the alcohol support is balanced. The wine evolves in the medium with fine liveliness, marked by a sparkling note. The range of aromas is similar to that of the nose. A persistent note of exotic fruits like banana, mango, lychee and passion fruit along with spices like cumin, ginger and flowers, the rose. The finish has a beautiful length, 9-10 caudalies, and a fine underlying liveleness.


Wine Advocate 94: The yellow-gold colored 2017 Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles Cuvée Anne opens with a very aromatic yet also coolish and savory bouquet of ripe and stewed stone fruit aromas with flinty and candied lemon and bitter orange tones intertwined with pastry notes with dried apricots. Rich and sweet as well as concentrated and savory on the palate, this is a viscous, textured and persistent SGN with a slatey and spicy finish reminiscent of a freshly sharpened pencil. 11.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork.
