Subtly alkaline and bracingly saline shadings in the nose of the 2004 Gewurztraminer Altenbourg Cuvee Laurence set the themes for what follows: remarkable refinement refreshment and striking minerality for this variety yet richness too. A carpet of rose petal and lilies; oceanic depth and salinity of minerals; and generous luscious peach and citrus cover the palate carrying into a buoyant intensely perfumed yet somehow delicate finish. The combination of botrytis and desiccation on these grapes seems to have worked some sort of magic in the context of both the variety and the vintage.

Intense and rich with a hint of sweetness that carries honey spice and especially mineral flavors which are particularly pronounced from the graphite aroma to the long salty finish. Drink now through 2012. 75 cases...

Wonderfully pliant and opulent on the palate with terrific depth of spicy fruit and juicy balancing acids. Impressively pure and rich for the variety and the vintage. Finishes very long and thoroughly ripe. A great success.
