As the last reviewer noted...honeyed caramel with good acidity and a lot of aromatic complexity. This bottle was really drinking well and probably at peak, and will require a strong cheese course or spicy food to show best.
A private dinner (at home): Rich, honeyed, earthy, very elegant hint of caramel, impressive but also a bit soft and monolithic and not necessarily a very typical Riesling. Yellow apple on the palate and a lightly burnt quality on the finish. Reminds me a bit of Künstler's Hochheimer Hölle Goldkapsel 2002. Puts power above precision and finesse. Should really have been enjoyed in the first decade of its life.
Souper Pango à Montréal (Restaurant Tandem): Un nez parfumé, un tapis de fleurs blanches. La bouche me parait mince à la première gorgée, erreur! C'est un magnifique vin très subtil, aérien, d'une finesse impressionnante, un certain moelleux, belle acidité, finale saline, c'est délicieux et long. 92-93 pts
Engagement celebration at Actinolite. Yellow colour. Intense nose of honey and apricot, with spice and white flowers. Off dry, spicy, creamy, lanolin and wax, medium body, balanced, long finish. Outstanding. Sweeter and much more mature than I recall from previous bottle.
