95+ Points | International Wine Cellar , 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.
