Kastanienbusch Pinot Noir 2018

Beautifully ripe. Fresh and confectionary; caramel and red fruit. Pomegranate molasses. I’m realizing after about an hour that this is some of the most deftly used oak in recent memory. So subtle I almost didn’t notice. Succulent and delightful. Stunning. — 3 days ago

Very opulent nose. Grapefruit, pineapple and lovely stoniness. Herbal, citrus. Lanolin. Just a wonderful nose. After air this gets gloriously mineral. Elegant, ripe and juicy. Nice tang and tartness on the finish and great persistence. Nice energy and great complexity. Like licking citrus on that has been thrown on a rock by Roger Clemens in his prime. Delicious. — 9 months ago

A new one to me. Nose is rich with hints of phyllo dough, lemon pepper, lime zest, herbs, citrus and more. Wow, palate is electric! 19 rocks in Baden! Terrific purity and delicacy. This is truly wonderful on PnP. Elegant and fresh with terrific and playful minerality. Nose develops more wet earth and Baden “sous bois.” Nose just keeps unfurling. Terrific. Terrific density, concentration and explosiveness. Finish is sneaky long. This is such a complete wine. Hugely mineral wine. Terrific. I think my score will go higher. — a year ago

L'ambre Orange Wine Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains 2021

One of daughter Georgie’s natural wines. Very perfumed and aromatic particularly being from the Muscat grape also with skin contact. The palate is very “fruit juicy” with low acid. No point in cellaring any of these. — 4 months ago

@Byron Hewett I don’t mind a little bit of skinnsy bitterness but it wasn’t overdone.

Just checking in, because Muscat and Gewurztraminer often finish with a bit of bitter on the finish. I am usually ok with it. My wife, not so much

Pinot Noir

@Delectable Wine this is just called “Pinot Noir. Thanks.

This is a blend of 30% 17 and 70% 18 as Sven thought 17 was too light. Stunning nose. Ethereal sour and sweet mid season cherries. Wild mint and spice. What a palate. Wonderful purity, crunch, sweetness and silky depth. Awesome. Really elegant and lovey persistence. So delicate and lacey. Velvety tannins and just a hint of bitterness on the finish which adds to the appeal. Such sultry fruit. All red fruits all day. Terrific minerality comes through on the finish. Needs a bit of air. I’ll be back.

Wow now the nose rocks. Honeyed, floral, grassy, herbal, so so good. Smells like a scene in nature. Insane florals. Elegant and sweeter fruit. Still the bitterness is there.

Kastanienbusch Riesling 2018

Love from sight to swallow. Exotic, electric, wakes you up with a little smile. This is the riper face of dry riesling. Rays of yellow sunshine peeking through pillars of green skinned acid. Aromatic and perfumey, you can feel a little heat in your nostrils. From lime and gasoline, we're introduced to tropical things. Papaya, dried mango. Raging acid to keep you alert and awake and ready to do whatever.

Nice intro

@Ely Cohn nice review! Klundt is special in that he tames the opulence of the pfalz, which is still in his wines, with raging acidity.

Outrageous confectionery nose of cotton candy, citrus peel, superb minerality and apricot pith. Peach pit as well. Wonderful aromas and very expressive. Palate is so chalky and pure. Teeming with energy and citrus. Sappy, clean and pure. Amazing balance. Just brilliant stuff. — 8 months ago

Ungezähmt Riesling 2017

9.3

Rich nose which is typical for this wine. Honeyed, also some nougat, spice, herbs, so complex. Smell decadent but also has restraint. Tree bark, lemon pith, lanolin. Super complex. Palate is incisive, rich and pure. But it lacks the energy of the 19 ngl. Good acidity and minerality and tons of dry extract. Delicious but again, the 19 crushes it. — a year ago
