Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2005
($74) From a parcel that yielded a particularly small crop. Aromas of gooseberry, redcurrant jam and mandarin orange, with a honeyed top note of botrytis. Concentrated sweet/tart palate impression on the palate which, owing to youthfully yeasty notes, promotes an impression of berry-filled buttered pastry. Shot through with animating citricity, invigoratingly tart berry character, and bracing salinity that play against the honeyed sweetness. Not typical 2003 character. What clarity and grip this has! (A vintage-typical oily, viscous, desiccated fruit-dominated Domprobst Auslese A. P. #18 was not in the same league.) 2 stars.
