    Sine Qua Non Sweet Wine 2000
    Suey
    1 missing description tag
    Half-Bottle (2)
    "The 2000 Suey TBA, made from 100% botrytis infected Roussanne from the Alban Vineyard, was harvested berry by berry, spent 38.5 months in new oak, and at harvest, had residual sugar of nearly 59.7% ... an unheard of number. At bottling, there were 241 grams of sugar per liter and the finished alcohol was 12.5%. This looks to be the stuff of legends. Unfortunately, only 597 half bottles were produced. Will it age as gracefully as a 1921 Yquem or 1949 Climens? Who knows, but anyone who loves prodigious, individualistic wine and the nectars produced from meticulous, even obsessive harvesting and vinification concerns should make every effort to latch on to a bottle of this unbelievable elixir. It's as good as it gets." (100pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #154, Aug 2004)
