Bright golden yellow. Knockout nose offers explosively rich aromas of candied mango, crystallized papaya, smoked meat, sweet spices and nutmeg. Big, rich and fat, yet with bright, tangy flavors of yellow tropical fruits complicated by underlying minerality and sweet spices. Structured, focused and very long, this is an extremely impressive and powerful gewurztraminer from a great year for the variety. Taste this blind and you can't help but guess Sporen, although Marc Hugel noted that it's not always made from 100% Sporen grapes. "It depends on the vintage," he said. "In great years like 2005 and 2007 that produce a lot of late-harvest wines, the Jubilee is made from other parcels that do not normally give grapes used for late-harvest wines."
