Brown syrup in the glass. Nose of cobbler, citrus, honey, canned pear, flint, cinnamon and lychee. Med-lite body with smoked peach, honey, canned pear, tangerine, earth and cinnamon on the palate. Secondary brown sugar and brûlée. Med-short finish. Decent acidity and minerals, but not enough structure to hold its gooey, bordering on cloying, fruit.
Bright gold. Aged, total mineral and beyond petrol aromas, a bit shy at first, but became more pronounced as it warmed up a bit. Palate is quite delicate, lighter then medium weight, and all minerals. Cerebral, rather than hedonistic. Medium finish.
(at Abacrombie – Baltimore) – deep golden but not oily. Initial cheesy nose. This blows off after 5 minutes to reveal intoxicating tangerine and apricot aromas. Deep, mature, complex, captivating. The palate is dry, but there is so much Riesling extract that the wine is a perfect balance of sweet fruit, secondary notes, balancing structure. I am really impressed and will need to go back to the cellar to see if I can find more. Glorious!!!!! I don’t know how an Alsatian wine could provide more pleasure (20)
