Wine Spectator 94 points - A drier version of the late-harvest style, this vibrant wine is framed by tangy, integrated acidity that enlivens layers of ripe yellow peach, blood orange and grapefruit granita flavors, bringing out subtle accents of truffle, beeswax and fleur de sel. Drink now through 2027. 100 cases imported.-AN  (Nov 15 2012)

Vinous 95 points - (14% alcohol; 60 g/l residual sugar and 10.8 g/l acidity): Bright medium gold; looks like a very sweet wine. Peach syrup, pineapple, spun sugar and botanical herbs on the nose, plus a whiff of roasted banana and some lemon-limey botrytis lift. Supersweet and exotic in the mouth but with powerful acidity keeping the glyceral mid-palate passion fruit and spice flavors under wraps today. Not as expressive as the Brand Vieilles Vignes in spite of its huge sweetness; in fact, this is almost painful today. But the explosive, tactile, slowly unfurling finish suggests a very promising future for this deeply spicy riesling, which boasts almost SGN-like intensity. (ST)  (Nov 2012)
