Frühlingsplätzchen Großes Gewächs Riesling 2017

Dry as the proverbial fart. Lots of lemon, citrus and stone. Good but not excellent — a month ago

Steinbuckel Großes Gewächs Riesling 2017

Beautiful, deep yellow tones to this youthful wine. Cool riesling with intense yellow fruits and minerals while retaining a high acidity. Long finish with light spices, maybe, just maybe a hint of saffron. — 3 years ago


Pittersberg Großes Gewächs Riesling 2015

Nice concentration & depth and great purity of fruit, with pithy green grapefruit, some pomelo & ripe guava plus lemon acidity and a spicy finish. This is quite serious. Very young and evolves amazingly in the glass. — 4 years ago

Kirchenstuck Großes Gewächs Spätburgunder 2014

Wow a totally different expression of Pinot noir. Nose is lilacs and raspberry. Palate is gorgeous raspberry and a bit of spice. Lilac juice if that makes sense. Really juicy delicious sweet fruit. Great balance. Long juicy raspberry liquor finish. Wow. This is what great winemakers do. They make wines that reflect grapes and terroir in a very precise clean way.

Is the style in this period like some of the newer wines? I have a bottle of the '15 left and it weighs in at 15% ABV!?!


@Aravind Asok I’ve actually never had a more recent release from Pfeffingen. This was had some weight to it, but nowhere near 15% abv. I didn’t check the alcohol but I would guess closer to 12%.

Mölsheim Riesling 2017

The first German Riesling we ever sold. Always has a spot in my heart.

1er cru from young gg grapes. The more muscular of the two most known vineyards. I’m not going to try and spell it here.

Had pork in cider for dinner. Was in no mood for subtlety.

Nose is a big-un. Dense as heck. Stone fruit. Herbaciois but not vegetal.

Palate has great minerals but they take a back seat to the concentrated stone fruits. Still has that mineral grip. Bracing acidity keeps it fresh. So damned well made. Mountain stream freshness.

Needs 30 minutes to strut its stuff. And strut it does. Ass whips grosses Gewachs from all but the tippy top producers.

Bought from fass selections.

Am Schwarzen Herrgott Großes Gewächs Riesling 2018

2018 Großes Gewächs tasting
Quite open already, with some shy apricot & floral aromas... on the palate rounder yet with the amazing mineral acidity you’d expect. A white tea mouthfeel as well. Already drinkable but will hold for years to come. Beautiful.
