2 stars Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2002

($201 for 375 ml.) Caramelized peach and overripe muskmelon aromas with subtly salty hints. The far-gone ripeness on the nose in no way prepares one for a palate that is elegant rather than powerful and emphasizes salt and iodine minerality. Hazelnut puree and subtle chocolate notes emerge in the finish, making for a strikingly wide range of flavors, from deep, torrefactive low tones through subtly caramelized pit fruits to mineral salts. Texturally, this is smoother and more polished as well as possessing a more elegant sense of buoyancy than the gold capsule Auslese. 2 stars.
