A great expression of pure botrytis on the nose, with brilliantly fresh aromas of orange marmalade, fresh pineapple, apricot and honey. Penetrating acidity gives this intensely pineappley SGN razor-sharp clarity and uncanny lift. Endless racy finish of great precision. This baby will go on for decades.

Laurence Faller’s assertion that, while late in establishing itself, the botrytis was plentiful yet pure in 2001, is reflected in her awe-inspiring Quintessence de Grains Nobles. Orange custard, candied blood oranges, and toasted almonds can be found in the profound aromas of the 2001 Riesling Schlossberg Quintessence de Grains Nobles.
