Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 80 points

  • Half bottle. Medium yellow. Gorgeously pure nose of ripe, yellow apple with some faint petrol and green herbs. Fairly lush and as noted by a friend, Spatlese level perceptible sweetness due to blazing acidity. Clean and without a hint of botrytis. Marvelous. Will surely hold given the acidic structure, but I'm not so sure about how much improvement to expect.

  • Absolutely, positively nothing special, and certainly not worth $150 or more per bottle. Very simple and uninteresting, a straightforward flavor of dried apricot liqueur, and that's about it. When top-class Sauternes with all their botrytis complexity can be had from top vintages such as 2001 for considerably less money, there is nothing to recommend buying something like this. Eisweins have in my opinion have tended to be ridiculously overpriced in general, and this one's a perfect example. If you want to pay for Dieter's new Mercedes, by all means, be my guest, but know that you're being fleeced as you plunk down that Amex........
