Wine Advocate-Parker :
From a mosaic of small parcels in this gypsum-rich Grand Cru planted in the 1930s to Pinot Gris, Riesling (including red or black variants!), Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Sylvaner, Deiss' 2004 Schoenenbourg (or - as the label slightly pompously puts it - Grand Vin de Schoenenbourg) captivates with its extraordinary alliance of richness, elegance, and refinement. Diverse sweetly-scented flowers, candied citrus, tea, honey, and high-toned herbal distillates in the nose usher in a supremely unctuous yet ravishingly refined palate of liqueur-like concentrated sweetness, yet shot through with juicy citricity and suffused with crushed stone. Astonishingly penetrating, the finish here billows to the point of lift-off.
