  • Litschifruchtbutter, sehr einnehmende Nase, trocken-herb, richtig gut und überraschend!

  • Anfangs echt etwas alt aber mit zunehmender Luft kommt hier wahre Größe heraus, ein breiter Wein, birnenschalig herb mit vollem und super eingebundenem Holz, entwickelt eine bienenwachsartige Süße mit langem Abgang. Davon abgesehen ist allein die Farbe genial, goldgelb mit grünbraunen Reflexen, dicht und strahlend, ein toller Wein und lang nicht am Ende. Habe ich für sensationelle 8 Euro von der Reste-Rampe bei Kaufhof FFM.

  • From 75cl, good cork, final 3mm grey and spongey. Wine golden like a Riesling of similar age or - I'm afraid - a Sauternes several years older. Lots of oak on the nose, still decent acidity on the entry, even some juicy grapefruit action, but definitely a couple of years too old for pleasure. Even for me as an occasional fan of old white Rioja, this seems oxidised, musty and over the hill. Picking up a bottle as a closeout item today for just under 8 EUR was a no-brainer, but - cancelling my plans for tomorrow evening - the others will remain firmly on the shelf where I found this one... If you have it in the cellar, drink up; if you live in Germany and are passing by a Kaufhof store in the next few days, this is an interesting and inexpensive lesson in Wine and Time. (Interestingly, Parker suggests a drinking window until 2018, and Hugh Johnson's pocket guide (2013) still lists this as a drinkable vintage). 83P(?)

  • This was very mediocre. Maybe an off bottle? I tasted this at the merchant in 2005, and it was 1 of my top picks. Too bad :(
