Knockout high-toned nose offers roasted, botrytis-rich aromas of honeycomb, tobacco, cherry-almond and vanilla. Silky and viscous on entry, then sharply delineated in the middle owing to powerful ripe acidity, which intensifies the saline flavors of honey, nougat, caramel and peach syrup. Like an essence of pinot gris. The incredibly long finish features an exhilarating minty lift and a wonderfully light touch. This has near-perfect balance.

Fresh white truffle notes lace pretty apple chutney, mango and peach pie flavors in this lively dessert wine. The razorlike acidity is nicely integrated, hinting at a long life ahead.

The razorlike acidity is nicely integrated, hinting at a long life ahead. Layers of spice, vanilla and honey wind through the wine, lingering on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. 10 cases imported. –AN

The Mann 2007 Pinot Gris Altenbourg Selection De Grains Nobles Le Tri was given the same nickname as the corresponding Muscat, but in this instance was also officially registered as S.G.N. We have here is an elixir utterly different than those which preceded it in this year’s line-up, first off because 237 grams of residual sugar are met by a near-doubling of acidity, to the level one would expect to find in a great nobly sweet German Riesling, and secondly because the vinification was in new barrique. Candied lime peel, grapefruit marmalade, honey, marzipan, lanolin, and vanilla on the nose segue into a viscous, buoyant, botrytis-saturated, confectionary palate but one with a sense of vivacity and genuine framing from the wood that help restrain the effects of so much residual sugar. This finishes with whip-lashing intensity. I think it’s another S.G.N. that will need decades to come into full focus and shed some superficial sweetness, but in truth, tasting it anytime over (I’m guessing) the next 40 years will be a remarkable experience. - David Schildknecht
