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
