Getting to know the Gewurztraminer Rayon de Lune

An original, colourful wine! Cuvée "Rayon de Lune" is inspired by the history of Bennwihr and its villagers, nicknamed the "moon chasers" since medieval times on account of their insatiable thirst for freedom. The winemakers of BESTHEIM drew inspiration from the Moon in crafting this wine, presented in exclusive blue bottles. Gewurztraminer is one of Alsace's four noble grape varieties, and probably the most widely-celebrated.

Tasting notes

A brilliant yellow robe with flashes of gold. The nose is dominated by spicy notes and rich exotic fruits (mango, lychee). The palate has all the richness one would expect from Gewurztraminer planted on hillsides, with just the right dose of sunshine to ensure vibrant fruit and a delicately rounded texture. That same balance of freshness and roundness persists throughout the long finish. 

Food-wine pairings

Ideal with Asian cuisine, strong cheeses (Munster, Roquefort...), foie gras and desserts such as cherry clafoutis, yule logs or even kougelhopf as an aperitif.

And what if... Succumb to the temptation of an unexpected encounter...
