"Humbrecht insists he was amazed at just how much acidity and ripeness the cool summer, warm dry September, and attack of noble rot and shriveling combined to concentrate in his 2004 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl Vendange Tardive. At 9% alcohol, 93 grams of residual sugar, and with extreme 12 grams (tartaric) acidity by Alsace standards, this delicate yet almost piercing essence of Riesling plays more by Germanic rules. Lime, tangerine, nectarine, honey, and subtle smokiness usher in an explosively citric and unctuously honeyed palate display, and the finish nearly threatens to draw blood. One can't say that this is hugely complex as yet, but these are early days for such a wine, which I would not revisit for at least five years and plan on holding for at least two decades." - David Schildknecht, robertparker.com (Feb 28, 2008)
