The 2004 J. Schram has aromas of fresh green apple, apricot and lime and a bit of minerality. In addition there is a creaminess of vanilla custard, and marzipan followed by fresh baguette. Flavors of orange, melon and lemon are present with some lime pith. The fruit is accentuated by warm spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. The texture is rich and tangy with an acidity that is long and balanced.
J. Schram is appealing on its own as an aperitif or enjoyed with fresh shellfish, caviar, smoked salmon, tangy cheese, seafood brochettes or risotto with prosciutto.
