2 stars Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2002
Subtle and alluring aromatic notes of bread, muskmelon, peach and honey. Incredibly fat and thick and yet not heavy or syrupy. White peach, melon, honey and herbal tea flavors. There is a subtle suggestion of caramelization, but also plenty of fresh fruit juiciness left in this enormously ripe wine, and a bracing, fascinating salty-mineral strand in the honeyed finish. But I pick up a faintly prickly botrytis pungency as well. Weil likens this to an elegantly, finely botrytized cousin of his superb '96 gold capsule Auslese. Potential 2 stars.
