Great wine, drinking nicely now but has loads of potential for another 15 years

Apéritif to an epic meal at Luxembourg. For such a sweet drink, it sure did okay in whetting our appetites.

The botrytis certainly shows. Honey, apple, grapefruit, lemon peel, musk, mineral. An almost baby pee like aroma lingers in the nose. Weighty, yet incredibly precise. Juicy fruit and spice on the palate. Racy, drawn-out acidity.

Note: Being a young Prum, I was looking out for the sponti/fermentative characters people talk about. Couldn't detect any (maybe that funk?) - likely because it has been opened for a while before I had a glass.

From RC write-up: Graacher wines typically offer greater finesse when young and are overtly more mineral noted than those of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They often show more citrus and fresh nectarine fruit, as well as a powdery, sorbet-like minerality that strongly differentiates them from the ripe peach fruit and the textural opulence that Wehlener Sonnenuhr wines develop with age. Graacher wines are also typically more accessible when young than those of their more famous neighbour. The slope here faces south-southwest: less westwards than the Badstube but slightly more than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The slope is also steeper than the
Badstube, but slightly less steep than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Finally the soils are also slightly deeper than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr and the gradient varies from 45% to an impressive 65% (so again, more steep than the Badstube but slightly less so than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr). Typically the most mineral tasting wine in the line up.

A rare goldkapsel wine. Mango, dried fig, lime. Viscous. A seemingly carbonated acidity fills the mid and back palate. Lovely sweet wine!

Really opened up during the night in the fridge! Deeper, more complexity, more weight, while balance and finesse remain completely intact. Up one notch.

'02 is in the zone right now. Tasty botrytis bringing in tropical tones but with a zippy and precise backbone of acid and minerals
