Super auslese. Ripe and concentrated, yet focused and bright, marshaling its lime, peach and vanilla flavors right through the lingering finish. Terrific balance and harmony for the vintage. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. Best after 2008. —James Suckling
Dark color with complex aromas of blackberries, flowers and mace with undertones of nutmeg. Full-bodied, with a solid core of velvety tannins and ripe fruit. Goes on and on. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made. —James Suckling
A little reduced in aroma, with smoke, toast, licorice and lemon flavors thrown into relief by vivid acidity. Coiled pretty tightly now, with a strong mineral undercurrent, this just won't quit on the finish. Patience required. Best from 2006 through 2014 —Bruce Sanderson
