Did you know?
"Vendanges Tardives" means the wine was made from grapes harvested later than usual, when the "noble rot" or Botrytis Cinerea starts to affect the grapes, making them loose almost all their water content. This is how sweet wines like Sauternes, Coteaux du Layon or Tokaji are made.

What experts say  
  
90/100 "From the steepest portion and oldest vines among his holdings in this site, a 2009 Pinot Gris Hinterburg de Katzenthal Vendange Tardive was not, Felix Meyer notes, more botrytized or even higher in must weight than its non-V.T. counterpart. The designation “late harvest” was simply employed in order to single-out the superior wine. Overripe peach, musk melon, and mango combine with gardenia and lily perfume whose liquid rendition helps convey a nearly over-the-top sense of decadent ripeness on this wine’s expansive, creamy, glycerin-rich palate. A saliva-inducing but consistently confectionary note of salted caramel adds savor to a long, soothing finish. Drink this over the next 7-9 years, or at least be very attentive to its subsequent evolution." (2009 vintage)
