92 points "From a mixture of all Alsace’s cepages (but a plurality of Gewurztraminer) Deiss’s 2007 Burg displays a kaleidoscopically fascinating nose of blond tobacco, graphite, brown spices, talk, peat, musk, and citrus, indeed, if you didn’t know, you might be tempted to ask “What all’s in this?!” to which the answer would be “some of everything.” In this instance, you could be forgiven for speculating that some Cabernet Sauvignon had snuck in from the Medoc. The oily rich palate features tactile impinged by brown spices, chalk, peat, and graphite; and I am only a bit disappointed by the extent to which sweetness dominates the finish. But this will be worth holding for 15 or more years and in the process the balance should improve. Deiss didn’t even bother to harvest a 2006 from this deeply-soiled site, he explained, “because it’s like a sponge, and warm to boot,” thus ideally designed to exacerbate the vintage’s challenges.
