About Domaine Schoffit
Domaine Schoffit originated in Colmar and has since expanded outward--farther than anyone thought possible. Founded by Robert Schoffit, his son Bernard now manages the estate. Suffice it to say that he has elevated this Domaine to its greatest imaginable height.
95+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2003
(made from 100% nobly rotten fruit harvested on October 18; this technically barely qualified as wine, with 4.2% alcohol, 450 grams per liter of sugar and 12 grams of acidity) Yellow-gold color. Restrained, brooding aromas of singed peach, marzipan and honey. Viscous, intensely spicy and wonderfully pure for a wine with such tooth-rattling sweetness. Almost miraculously, one can identify the variety here. An exhilarating combination of fresh and dried fruits. Builds and expands remarkably on the endless finish, showing a Tokaji-like note of white raisin and supersweet roasted fruit tones. For a wine that's nearly half sugar, this is shockingly easy to drink. May well outlive us all.
