"If there can ever be a perfect vintage for a vineyard, 2000 was that way for Brand," said Olivier Humbrecht.

"If there can ever be a perfect vintage for a vineyard, 2000 was that way for Brand," said Olivier Humbrecht. He added that the 2000 Riesling Brand "is like the 1989 or 1998 yet not as sweet and with additional richness, acidity, and botrytis." Its exuberant nose displays poached pears, white peaches, liquid minerals, and apricots. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied wine is immensely rich, ample, and plump. Layers of tea-laced minerals vie with copious white fruits for the taster's attention. Intricately laced, its powerful character lasts throughout its exceedingly long finish. This prodigious wine will be at its best between 2007 and 2020. - Pierre Rovani

Fabulous. Full-bodied, dense and complex, this is one of the Rieslings of the vintage.

Full-bodied, dense and complex, this is one of the Rieslings of the vintage. Rich, with exotic, botrytis-tinged flavors of orange and honey accenting the mélange of tropical fruit, pear, gingerbread and mineral aromas and flavors on a firm, broad framework. A hint of sweetness balances the bright acidity, but this needs rich food to match its opulence. Delicious now, but will improve over time. Drink now through 2010. – BS
