93+ points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "($140 list; this was harvested a bit riper than the Clos Windbuhl and finished with more alcohol and less residual sugar at 11.3% and 74 g/l) Green-gold. Exotically ripe aromas of pineapple, musky mandarin orange and marzipan. Supersweet and wonderfully intense, with distinctly liqueur-like but still fruit-driven flavors of apricot, marzipan and honey. The inclusion of about 10% healthy grapes (i.e., those not affected by noble rot) added freshness to this wine, said Humbrecht. This has a flamboyant personality and great appeal, yet I suspect it will be even more complex ten years down the road. (NovDec 2006)"
