1998 Domaine Zind Humbrecht "Goldert" Gewurztraminer Vendage Tardive

SKU #1110232 93-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Sauvage aromas of leather and earth, with a roasted botrytis character; less fruit-driven than the last sample. Very sweet and very thick in the mouth, with peppermint and lichee flavors. Strong flavors of roasted botrytis. Explosive finish buries the palate under a wave of candied fruits, fig, clove and caramel. Inner quote mark (8/1999)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromatically, the 1998 Gewurztraminer Goldert Vendange Tardive appeared to be in a reductive state, displaying leathery scents. Olivier Humbrecht maintains that these aromas are nothing more than this wine's expression of its deep minerality. On the palate, it is mind-boggling. Oily layers of intense mineral, floral (roses and violets), and red fruit flavors can be discerned in its hugely concentrated and powerful character. It is full-bodied, gorgeously detailed and balanced. Projected maturity: 2003-2014+. Inner quote mark (6/2000)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A contrast of concentration and elegance. Packs in loads of honey, ginger and mint (yes, mint!) flavors on an incredibly spry and delicate framework, all balanced and intense. The finish takes on a life of its own. Drink now through 2004. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2000)
