Incredibly pure high-toned nose offers near-magical floral lift to its mirabelle and peach fruit. Superripe seamless and spherical conveying an explosively primary quality to its yellow fruit flavors and a degree of finesse that's rare for gewurztraminer at this extreme level of ripeness. That ineffable floral treble note gives the endless finish a wonderfully perfumed fresh quality.

A 2005 Gewurztraminer Mambourg Quintessence de Grains Nobles offers a gorgeous bouquet of litchi rose candied citrus and high-toned herbal distillate then disarms you with the delicacy and elegance with which it wafts across yet saturates the palate like a liqueur of spiced litchi distilled essence of rose petals and creamily-textured Gewurztraminer reveals amazingly frisky concentration of fresh citrus and manages to finish with enormous refreshment and refinement for all of its botrytis-saturation and analytically almost freakish ripeness. Enjoy it anytime over the next thirty years (while paying back the bank). -David Schildknecht

Rich and smoky with a subtle core of racy acidity enlivening peach pie quince paste and orange blossom flavors. It's unctuous with a thread of minerality that leads to the lingering honeyed finish.
