Description of the wine Riesling Clos Windsbuhl 2000 - Vendange Tardive

This was the last vineyard harvested October 31st in 2000. We decided to wait for this vineyard because the weather allowed it and mostly because the grapes were very healthy and seemed to enjoy waiting ! We were very surprised by the ripeness of this wine, given the little amount of noble rot.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : Thanks to a crisp acidity, this wine really fermented slowly to reach a real VT balance, keeping a large amount of sweetness. The nose is very aromatic, showing more Windsbuhl character than over-ripeness: intense waxy, mineral and exotic aromas. The mouth is unctuous and delicately balanced, with no extra weight, making it very easy to taste young, but also capable of good ageing.
