    May 20, 2018 - I think this needs about 10 more years.

    January 28, 2018 - CT "drink by" says "2016", but this is still going strong. Nicely aged / mellowed, sweetness on this is a feature rather than the main event. Hints of tropical fruit on the palate. Nice complexity from the time it hits the tongue through the finish. I don't get a sense of "cloying", at least from this bottle. Instead, it seems like fruit, sugar and acidity have all folded together in a fashion that suggests something near a peak drinking experience. One way or the other, a great reach into the cellar for today's apres ski activities.

    November 4, 2017 - Garagiste selection. 8.5% ABV

    Color: medium yellow/gold
    Nose: Intense aromas of coconut, pineapple, and lychee. Beautiful evolution in the glass.

    Body/flavor: medium; complex, delicious sweet tropical fruits. Very well-balanced with ideal acid structure. Not at all cloying.

    Aftertaste: long lingering finish of pineapple and coconut.

    Amazing 25 year old bottle!!!

    October 20, 2017 - A nice mature Auslese. Not too sweet. Golden color, pear, apple, moderate acidity for the style, and a very smooth finish.
