"Butter cream, marzipan, pear drops, wild roses, brown spices, and wood smoke inform the nose of Gassmann’s 2005 Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive, which slides onto the palate glossy, rich and creamy, with notes of toasted almond, hazelnut cream, honey and butterscotch. Here is another marvel of elegance and lift for all of its richness and overt sweetness, finishing with superb clarity and length and promising two decades of enjoyment. (One can purchase the delicious 1997 even today at the cellar door.)" Drink 2008-28--David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate, 92 points!
