93 points "Racy and intensely flavored, showing candied citrus, clove and honey notes. The texture is a little grainier and less supple than the best in this group, yet it's tasty and persistent. Drink now through 2006. 330 cases made. (BS)" Best 2003-2006

96 points "Spices, new French oak, and super-ripe pears can be discerned in the aromatics of the magnificent 2000 #6 Grande Cuvee Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague (9.5% alcohol, 233 grams residual sugar/liter, and 7.8 grams/liter total acidity). Aged for 24 months in new oak barrels, this tangy, lively, medium- to full-bodied effort has superb balance. Candied apples, jammy apricots, red currants, and hints of citrus zests are found throughout its flavor profile and extensive finish." Best 2003-2033
