These wines made from overripe grapes are picked well after the classic vintage and in the greatest years only. The action of noble rot (botrytis cinerea) gives them an almost unlimited ability to age. They are part of the elite of the greatest wines in France.
Colour is still bright and very young, straw and lemon yellow with lots of pale green hints. It displays the depth and texture that come from a subtle touch of over-ripe grapes, while numerous silky tears cling to the glass. The bouquet is immediately seductive and mouth-watering, a splendidly aromatic Gewurztraminer that reveals a full complement of rose, jasmine, reseda, acacia blossom, juicy mango and candied citrus, in harmony with a fine and elegant sweetness. The wine gently caresses the palate with a mellow wave of supple, juicy fruit.
