The 2001 Tokay-Pinot Gris Altenbourg Quintessence de Grains Nobles bursts forth with aromas reminiscent of spice and botrytis-laden apricots peach jam cherries and white pepper. This huge massively rich wine contains 200 grams of residual sugar per liter yet is balanced and vinous (unlike some super-sweet jelly like dessert wines). Oodles of caramelized apricots spices and hints of tangy passion fruit can be found in its deep character as well as in its seemingly never ending finish.

Knockout nose of apricot mandarin orange honey white raisin and toffee; boasts a nearly roasted ripeness while retaining the extraordinarily pure botrytis character of the vintage. Hugely dense rich and thick but with vibrant acids giving the wine great inner-mouth energy. The pure fruit toffee and honey flavors build and build on the endless subtle finish. An SGN of great purity and vibrancy.

Great purity of flavor showing pear quince and honey notes unctuous and concentrated backed by a moderately firm structure. It's dominated by the residual sugar now but will improve over time. Best from 2006 through 2020... Great purity of flavor showing pear quince and honey notes unctuous and concentrated backed by a moderately firm structure.
