Full-bodied and very sweet with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing.

The bouquet offers marmalade, quince jus and yellow flowers. It has fine definition, if not the killer precision of a top vintage, though the oak appears to have been assimilated since I last tasted it. There is something almost Germanic here, like a Beerenauselese!
