David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Fascinating aromas of lichen, browned butter, and peat mingle with white raisin and caramel in Rolly Gassmann’s 2008 Auxerrois Moenchreben and its lush though lively palate is similarly informed by an unusual juxtaposition of forest floor-like and almost confectionary elements. Hints of salt offer a welcome sense of invigoration to a long, fascinating finish that is unabashedly sweet but utterly belies its over-14% alcohol. I could imagine this being worth following for 12-15 years, but Gassmann scoffs at that. “It will be there for my grandchildren,” he insists."
