96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000 Schoenenbourg was spectacular. Cigar box, clay and earth can be discerned in its potent, complex aromas. This medium to full-bodied, muscular wine is plump, oily-textured, and rich, yet well-defined as well as pure. Cherries, blueberries, apricots, peaches, ashes, tobacco, and clay are found in its intricate personality. This wine, another in a string of Deiss's stunning successes in the 2000 vintage, is concentrated, amazingly harmonious, and deep.
