Pinot Blanc, Albert Boxler, 2004

There is that telltale touch of honey and once again, botrytis aromas and flavors start to overwhelm what could have been a great wine if picked a little less overripe and mouldy. Although enough acid exists to hold the wine together, this wine is just too clunky and too expensive to make it worthwhile. The residual sugar makes a second glass seem cloying and boring. Too bad  behind all that honey and sugar you can sense what would could have been an outstanding wine.
