Lekker, maar overpriced. De WG naast de deur biedt quasi hetzelfde voor 2/3 van de prijs. — 10 days ago

Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg RIESLING GG DRY 2019

Lyle Fass

Sick nose. The class of Felsenberg really shows well. Melon. But sick melon. Lanolin. Really clear and well defined. Spice. Almost a hot pepper spice. Enveloping nose. Wow. So intense. So mineral. So complex. So closed. So piquant. So elegant. So textured. So long. Nose is airy and spacious. Huge concentration and purity. Saline a f. Long long finish. Really salty. Nose keeps opening and is so ocean air. Just sitting on the beach. Wow the intensity on this is no joke. So long. Fruit (pitted stone fruits) starting to show on the finish. Really pretty.

After air this this is so classy. So refined. Pungent aromas. Wow. This is the best so far.

They say a good bottle of wine is drunk to the end. This holds very true here. Serious ripe fruit. Huge nose of zest. Lingering and beautiful — 15 days ago

Dernauer Spätburgunder 2018

Very young & VERY reductive. Actually almost undrinkable right after opening, with a proper stink. But the palate is silky, smooth & pure.
After 24h this starts showing some ripe, succulent red fruit with an earthy undertone. Great fruit & airiness on the palate with brilliant purity. Very fine tannins, vibrant acidity. This is really good & shows great promise.
I’ll leave it & see how it evolves over the next 24h.
Edit: 48h after opening this shines - the barnyard is gone and earthy, mushrooms aromas appear, with ripe, juicy red fruit. Gorgeous mouthfeel - ripe & full, yet light, juicy, pure. Excellent tannin mgnt.
Buy & put ( and forget) in your cellar for the next 10y!

Yes this sounds like something I should try. Will take a screenshot and visit Winery after COVID.

Holy hell this is terrific. A bit of body here but the waft of a powerful nose and lingering and bracing acids are pleasurable. Absolutely enamored — 9 days ago

Rödelsee Trocken Scheurebe 2018

Slow ox, then full decant 2 hrs prior. Intriguing wine. We haven’t really had anything like this before. Grapefruit nose, sweaty, ripe, reminds you of rueda in a way. Palate is an explosion, massive fruit/mineral accord. Huge acid. Grapefruit, lime, green herbaceousness. Refreshing. Pithy finish. Brainy stuff. — 17 days ago

Vom Schiefer Riesling 2019

Well they let me do a light box shot for the 7 terroirs but this one, despite it being the same grey background, is a no go for my light box shots. Sucks.

Anyway this wine doesn’t suck. What a nose. Confectionary minerality and spun sugar. Cotton candy through a Nahe lens. Stunning slatey minerals. Vulcanized rubber. Peach. Airiness, minerals galore, hint of flint and so expansive. A stunning nose. Keeps getting more nuanced. Wow what a palate. Huge minerals. Concentrated minerals. I love wines where fruit is an afterthought. It’s here but it’s an afterthought. Really long, really precise and really fine. So mineral. Like sucking on a wet rock. Really complex and just wonderful texture. Lots of pitter patter like a fine dust is left on your palate. Terrific vineyard peach now develops on the nose. This is a major major value. All fruit is from Niederhausen. This is the most Lyle wine ever. Man I love this. Just a bruiser of a mineral bomb.

@Delectable Wine this is just Steinterrasen. Thanks!

Nose is delightful, refined and very classy. Stony. Mineral. Confectionary. Airy and expansive. Salty as well. Really nice depth here. Wow what a a chewy delight. Textured, some peach and apple fruit, light spice and almost a tannic impression on the finish. Wow, what texture, grip and concentration here. Juicy and so so mineral. Compact and so much structure. Just terrific. Amazing clarity here. Brilliant stuff. Showing better than the baby GG’s today and I think this is a level below. Just a superb wine.
