Wonderfully sweet but cut by sharp citrussy acidity that gives this extremely unevolved wine an almost painful quality today. It's remarkable that the varietal character comes through so clearly at this level of ripeness. The bracing finish mounts inexorably and goes on for minutes. An extraordinary sweet wine likely to last for two or three decades.

A 2005 Pinot Gris Altenbourg Quintessence de Grains Nobles erupts from the glass with smoke spice pineapple peach and honey. Extraordinarily rich yet luscious and refined it finishes with astonishing clarity exhibiting bell-clear essence of peach pineapple and orange awash in honey and liberally dusted with brown spices. Amazing now - and by no means superficially sweet - this should gain complexity over a 20-25 year period. -David Schildknecht
