It is a versatile grape that produces a wide variety of styles depending on the region and winemaking style; some (like those from Alsace) can be full-bodied with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet while others (like those from Italy) can be crisp and light-bodied with dominating citrus aromas.

The ultimate in SGN wines, because it not only has richness, sweetness, and botrytis, but it also offers acidity, balance and total seduction. There are flavors of peaches and mirabelles, but they are really all submerged in the amazing elegance of a wine that will age indefinitely.— R.V. (4/1/2005)
This is a wonderful wine, which comes from the vineyard in the south of Alsace that the Humbrechts brought back from obscurity. It has both intensity and also great elegance. It has flavors of currants, layers of orange zest and some fresh acidity. But it also has spice which lies gently with the fruit flavors. The taste just goes on forever.— R.V. (4/1/2005)
Smoky aromas followed by the explosion of sweet fruits, with flavors of ripe oranges, of wild flower honey and acidity. This is gorgeous now, but its sweetness should be tamed with aging. A fantastic wine.— R.V. (4/1/2005)
This ultrarich, opulent wine has such purity of fruit. With its pepper and spice flavors layered over mango and ripe nectarine, it is a straight line of pure flavor, rich and complex.— R.V. (12/1/2011)
