Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AG=92) (11.6% alcohol, 168 g/l r.s. and 6.4 acidity) Bright full gold. Pure, bright, surprisingly subdued aromas of fresh stone fruits and spices. The glyceral honey and apricot flavors show more botrytis than varietal character. I like the wine's fresh edge but it's a bit polite in the glass at present and shows less nuanced than the SGN from Sonnenglanz.

(RP=89) Marzipan, quince jelly, butterscotch, litchi, and honey dominate the Bott-Geyl 2008 Gewurztraminer Schloesselreben Selection de Grains Nobles along with its nearly 170 grams of residual sugar, for an impression almost excessively confectionary for my palate. Thank heavens that even here there is at least a deeply-buried rivulet of primary juiciness such as characterizes the vintage, and a smoky, faintly bitter note of black tea offers some push-back against its sweetness. But this wine's acidity is no higher than that of the regular grand cru bottlings in the present collection, and I suspect that is simply too little for its sugar. I don't doubt that this will keep for at least 12-15 years, but I strongly suspect that it will still be overly sweet at that point.
