Winemaker's Notes:

1989 VINTAGE: An historic vintage that coincided with our 350th anniversary. After a warm and dry summer, the harvest began early, on 27th September. It was a comfortable vintage for the classic range of Alsace wines, from the principal grape varieties. However, for wines made from over-ripe, botrytised grapes, it was an exceptional vintage. By the time the harvest ended on 9th November, record natural sugar levels had been achieved, such as we had not seen since 1945, while the SELECTION DE GRAINS NOBLES wines outshone even those of the famous 1976 vintage. TASTING NOTES: (by Serge Dubs, World's Best Sommelier 1989) Immediately, at first sight, its golden orange-yellow colour attracts the connoisseur's attention. It is so deep and bright that it is almost mesmerising. The bouquet is a festival of aromas, of honey, quince, spices and flowers. On the palate it is sheer heaven, a liqueur-like, unctuous wine, delicately sweet, caressing and captivating. An exceptional wine from a vintage with ideal, optimum conditions for Sélection de Grains Nobles wines. A collector's wine, for lovers of the very finest wines. September 3, 1996
