    Pinot Gris 2005
    Rotenberg Wintzenheim, SGN, Zind Humbrecht
    Half-Bottle (12)
    "Offering an amazing combination of near-gelatinous viscosity with near-weightless buoyancy - and with an Eszcencia-like ethereal aspect (albeit at 8.5% alcohol) and standoff between acids and residual sugar - this features scents and flavors of purple plum and apricot preserves; pineapple and mandarin; brown spices; leather, black tea, and peat; smoked meat; and butter cream. The layers of flavor here oscillate and overlap with mesmerizing complexity, leading to a dizzying and uplifting finish. This will no doubt be a 30-40 year wine." (97pts DS, #188, April 2010)
