I love this wine. One of the most unique and distinctive Rieslings ever. Massively floral and mineral complexity on the nose. Just outrageous. Melon, citrus, spice, tangelo and so lifted. So pure. Nuanced. Superbly elegant and linear with delicious melon/citrus fruit and great inner mouth florals and an awesome fruit skin quality on the finish. So ethereal and pure. Lots of vim and vigor but also a lovely richness to the texture but never betraying its freshness and vivacity. Superb concentration and structure. Amazing depth here. Truly a brilliant wine. I’m sure this will open up and reveal more but really great on the P and P. Great, delicate and long finish. — a day ago

Probstey Riesling 2019

9.5

Ahh the glorious Probstey. Actually some fruit on the nose. Lemon. Meyer lemon, spice and expansive minerals. Gorgeous almost cloud like in its purity. Some bitter citrus notes as well. What a palate. Amazing Probstey. So pure, so delicate, so clean. Dense, structured and super nimble but this wine has presence. It walks in a room and you turn around to see who has entered. Unreal nose now. Sicko purity. Bergamot. Almost green tea. So so good. Young and structured but so much going on. Unreal suave structure and almost a tannic backbone. Long. Glides on the palate. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Unreal texture and complexity. Citrus and layers of other citrus. Balance is zen like. Really long, compact and persistent. Seems like it needs to open but my o my is it all there. — 7 days ago

Who doesn’t love that feeling when you point to a wine on the list and the sommelier’s eyes light up and they make an involuntary “ooh” of excitement. This bottle was spectacular tonight and so incredibly youthful for its 15 years. Still showing greenish gold in color and positively vibrating with stony minerality underneath Asian pear and honeysuckle, mandarin orange and star fruit flavors. I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, there’s no better bang for the buck in the wine world than aged Riesling. @weingut_hexamer FTW! — 7 hours ago

Thanks. Deep and very perfumed nose. Vanilla extract, herbs, spice and some apricot. Lifted and energetic nose. Really deep and wafting. Even floral. Palate is ripe, deep and juicy with appealing bitters in the finish. Acid is caressing and woven. Lovely hint of bell pepper on the nose. So good. Elegant, deep and super pure. This is a brilliant Riesling. Incredible texture and sap. What a finish. Almost a 9.4.

9.6

Really unique and distinctive nose. Citrus, herbs, flowers. A very earthy spatlese nose. Some brown sugar as well. Really vivid and detailed. Unlike any spatlese I’ve ever smelled. Just a brilliant nose. 9.6. Easy. Wow, what a palate. So nimble, spicey and complex. Insane acidity. Just electricity. Man this is exactly like an 01 middle mosel spatlese. So so impressive. The acid and length are nuts. Perfectly judged sweetness. A true spatlese. The nose is so exotic. So complex and so pure. Really nice. Wow that acid wakes up my canker sores! What a wine. — 7 days ago

Holle is a great vineyard.

Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch (Erben-Thanisch)

Berncasteler Doctor Kabinett Riesling 2019

Damn! Star bright gold with yellow-green highlights. Abundant nose and mouthwatering (medium plus plus [sic] acidity) palate of honeyed yellow apples, honeysuckle, cling peach, and fennel(!) with a hint of smoky flint on the moderate finish. Very rich for a Kabinett, but then this is modern day Mosel and (Erben-)Thanisch has shown rich for decades. The Doctor is truly in and this expression of the universal white should satisfy in all situations. Pork dishes are, of course, a natural but your spicier Asian or Cajun fare will thank you just as earnestly. Drink half of your stash now and the rest will reward through 2034 or so. — a day ago

Christophe insisted I taste sweet wines in 19 they were so spectacular. He’s not wrong. What a wine. Spectacular nose of papaya, guava and mango with gorgeous peach and minerals. Stunning herbal streak. Wow that palate. Energetic, pure, sappy and sweet but balanced by rip roaring acidity and insanely purity and balance. What balance. Sick wine. Herbal nose after some air. Terrific. This is sweet Riesling 102 from a brilliant vintage. Palate is cleansing and sweet but buffered by incredible acids and freshness. Finishes gamey and dry. Great concentration and purity. So good on a hot day like today. This is drink me now Riesling crack. — 7 days ago
