Light golden. Marvelous nose of tea, petrol, and exotic spice. Medium to full bodied but still manages a rather elegant feel. Dry, some dried apricot, yellow peach, good focus, not as much snap and minerality as you find in higher acid vintages. No complaints, though-this is showing very well at age 16.
Light golden color; nose of classic aged riesling with briney stone, ripe peach and faint pineapple overtones to the classic petrol richness. What was once rigid acidity is easing this into later middle-age (something I can relate to) but both this wine and I have several good years left!!! Have a half dozen of these left and probably more of the '01. Need to go back to trying them side-by-side.
Red Burgundy at The Bristol (Chicago, IL): Can it be? Dry riesling I like? This is quite nice, although it certainly shows on the massive side of things (as far as I like my riesling). A touch blowsy, but still plenty of rocky minerality and acidity to back it up. Not much fruit left on this wine, it's basically all structure. I did quite like all of that coupled with some secondary characteristics of dried stuff (not necessarily fruit).
16 years old, but drinking very well. Though, it will not improve. Served to risotto with king crab. Deep yellow, round, not a lot of acidity left, some mineral and apple/peach. I have one more 2000 and one 1998, after that we start on the 2007.
