    February 13, 2016 - Fresh and blisteringly acidic, saturn peaches, pineapple, tartaric, lovely.

    February 11, 2016 - Lovely and intense as always. Showing a bit drier than I recall, this is more about intense acidity and citrus fruit than sweetness. Very fragrant, love this stuff.

    January 15, 2016 - Tasty as always, richly spiced, canned peaches, pure and sweet.

    October 30, 2015 - Smells like peaches, cinnamon, pressed flowers, caramel, pineapple upside-down cake. Quite sweet with 16% residual sugar but blistering citric acidity with orange water and pineapple. Does not have the intense spicy-bitter phenolic character of many of the counterparts from Alsace, instead it's gently floral and tropical. This was also a fairly advanced bottle compared to others, might be time to drink up.

    January 14, 2015 - PnP 1 hr in glass, slightly chilled. Clear, yellow/tan color. apple/pear nose. Hard to believe this wine is 14 years old. Med sweet for a dessert with with unreal tart green apple finish. Lots of acidity and big fruit. Has many years left to go. Nothing off. $50 (.375)
