Domaine Philippe Gocker Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes: An Alsatian Gem – Tasting Notes & Food Pairings


Alsace, France, is renowned for its exceptional Gewurztraminer wines, and Domaine Philippe Gocker's Vieilles Vignes bottling stands as a shining example. This aromatic white wine, crafted from old vines,  offers a symphony of exotic spice, ripe fruit, and a vibrant acidity that begs to be paired with flavourful cuisine. In this tasting note, we'll uncover its nuances and suggest ideal food matches that will elevate your enjoyment of this Alsatian treasure.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: A vibrant golden yellow with shimmering reflections.
  • Nose: A burst of exotic perfumes greets you – lychee, rose petals, and hints of Turkish delight mingle with warm notes of ginger and cinnamon.
  • Palate: The wine is medium-dry, with a generous texture that coats the palate. Ripe stone fruit flavours like peach and apricot are followed by the signature Gewurztraminer spiciness of white pepper and clove. A vibrant acidity balances the richness, leading to a long and satisfying finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions

The richness and spice of  Domaine Philippe Gocker Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes call for dishes with equally bold flavours:

  • Asian Cuisine: Its aromatic profile complements Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian curries beautifully. The spice and subtle sweetness will temper the heat while enhancing the complex flavours of the dishes.
  • Spicy Dishes: Think Moroccan tagines with preserved lemon and olives, or a Sichuan stir-fry with plenty of ginger and chilli. The wine's sweetness and acidity will offer a delightful counterpoint.
  • Rich cheeses: Pair with a creamy Munster or a ripe Époisses for a decadent match.
  • Desserts: Enjoy alongside a spiced fruit crumble, poached pears with ginger, or even a classic crème brulée.
