Expert Reviews

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

($28; 15.8% alcohol, 12 g/l r.s. and 6.4 acidity) Medium orange-gold. Exotic honeyed fruit salad, overripe pear and a hint of cashew on the nose. Thick, dense and tactile, with flavors similar to the aromas. Solid acidity and a dusty impression of extract give this rich and fairly sweet wine a chewy quality. The highest in alcohol of Olivier Humbrecht's 2008s by a wide margin, yet it manages to remain just this side of overbearing. Still, this really needs to be paired with spicy Asian cuisine.
