This is an Eau-de-Vie ariginally made by Leonard Humbrecht back in 1976. It was bottled in 2017 by his son Olivier and purchased at the winery a few weeks later. This bottle had been opened last winter and about halfway consumed. It seemed a perfect drink to finish off an Alsatian Gewurztraminer tasting. Deep red-orange in color. The nose has a lot of alcohol. There is also some peach schnapps and lychees and a dried tea note. On the palate, this is warm. 63.1% Alcohol will do that. After the first sip it was welcoming though. It has a nice depth and complexity to it. Certainly, one of the smoother wines of this type (compared to grappas, other brandy's or eau de vies).
