98 points "The 1999 #10 Welschriesling Nouvelle Vague Trockenbeerenauslese, a wine Alois Kracher believes is his most concentrated of the 1999 vintage, offers white pepper-laced yellow fruits in its aromatics. Smoke, jellied peaches, jammy apricots, and loads of spices can be found in this viscous offering's character. It is immensely rich, almost painfully so, and is already revealing traces of caramel flavors that will, in time, significantly mark its character. It can be consumed over the next 40+ years. Bravo!"

95 points "An ethereal sweet wine, that melts away on the palate. It begins with an opening salvo of dried tropical fruit, caramel and candied citrus aromas and flavors, seamlessly meshed with the sweetness and acidity, giving an impression of cashmere on the palate. It ends with lingering caramel and apricot notes. Well-done. Drink now through 2015. 650 cases made. (BS)" Best 2002-2015
