"Issuing from the relatively deeper-soiled Schneckenberg portion of this granitic site, the Zind-Humbrecht 2011 Riesling Brand Vieilles Vignes (last tasted from cask) incorporates a low level of botrytized fruit and stopped fermenting with just enough residual sugar to lend noticeable sweetness. Seductive hyacinth and lily-of-the-valley carry over to billowing inner-mouth perfume on a silken, richly expansive palate that preserves an admirable sense of buoyancy even at nearly 14% alcohol. Cooling infusions of mint and basil, brightly juicy fresh lemon and white peach, along with saliva-inducing salinity and scallop-like savor make for an at once soothing and stimulating not to mention prodigiously prolonged finish. This lovely should prove worth following through at least 2032. Slower to finish its fermentation, this is apt to display yet greater complexity even relatively short-term not to mention after a decade or more."
