Gewurztraminer Marc is best enjoyed at room temperature, in a snifter glass. Warm it in the palms of your hands, and swirl it gently, admiring the shimmering sparkle produced by the tears that appear on the glass. Then breathe it in, and finally, sip gently. Take small sips to best appreciate all of the nuances of its character.Back to shop
When you smell Gewurztraminer Marc, you’ll be intoxicated by the fragrant, almost crystallized ripe grape aromas, met with a hint of cacao bean.
When you taste Gewurztraminer Marc, the round, rich, sweet flavour palate will blow you away with a sudden surge of richness. Chocolatey overtones give way to a long, intense finish.
The region of Alsace is situated in north-eastern France on the Rhine River plain. It borders both Germany and Switzerland and has alternated between German and French control throughout its history. Today, this cultural mix is apparent - beautiful timber-framed German-style houses line the streets and rub up against typical French-style churches.
Gewurztraminer Marc comes with a long pedigree. It’s produced by the Lehmann distillery - the oldest and most prestigious distillery of its type in the Alsace region. It is also the oldest to be awarded with the EPV label, which in English stands for “Living Heritage Company.” This recognition is bestowed on businesses with exceptional traditional and industrial know-how by the French government. Today, it continues to be recognized in France and internationally, winning several Excellence awards in the Eau-de-Vie category.
Gewurztraminer Marc is produced using Gewurztraminer grapes. These white wine grapes are high in natural sugars, with intense floral aromas. The brandy is twice distilled in the traditional manner in a copper, Charentes-style still. The distillate is “cut” at each stage of the process, removing the ends of the brandy to leave just the pure, rich, heart. Its luxurious, balanced character is a testament to the skill of its creators.
The Lehmann distillery is a family business. It is the oldest and most prestigious eau-de-vie distillery in the region and was originally founded in 1850 by Yves’s great-great-grandfather. The distillery has been passed down from father to son for 5 generations and is currently owned by Yves Lehmann. Today he produces a variety of spirits, including a line of whiskies that he first introduced in 2000.More on the Brand
