Weissburgunder in more yellows than greens. Orchard fruits over celery bitters, with a texture that wraps your tongue like olive oil or lemon soft serve.
Pleasant and subtly vibrant, faint neutral aromas of yellow apples, zest of lemons and limes. Flavors are pronounced and stay for a bit - granny smith apples and sweet naval orange.
And that texture - like a comfort blanket. — 6 days ago
Woozy from dental anesthesia but still out to dinner. Nose is tropical and floral. Can’t get much more. Palate is ripe and luscious and I chose this vintage as lower acid than normal but still has all the classic Laibleness. Juicy and long. So pure and floral. — 2 months ago
Frankly quite amazing. 12.5%. Tasted first at the winery in Durbach - Baden and then 2 days later a second bottle at a friends home. One of the best Rieslings money can buy. Mandarine, peach, hint bitter, orange blossoms - so long. Great minerality provided by the decomposed granite this area is known for. Traditionally made. This area is unique as Riesling is a unicorn in Baden which is dominated by Pinot. Obviously opened way to early but hard to resist. More big and round like the Pfalz Rieslings and not steely and sharp like the Mosel or Nahe. — 20 days ago
Very high acid. Needs a few more years to mellow — 2 months ago
Expressive nose with black peppercorns, cloves, crushed rock, a hint of iron & blood, underneath all that - pure black fruit. Fresh, spicy, enticing.
Medium bodied on the palate with ripe, grippy tannins, juicy black fruit acidity and nice purity to the fruit. This has grip, good tension, quite some power and loads of character. Reminiscent of Northern Rhône.
Nice length, too! A brilliant Austrian red! — 4 months ago

Vivid & crunchy, with red & black fruits in the nose (dark cherry, plums) but also some cloves, a hint of orange zest and some darker earthy notes in the back. A touch of brambly, wild character.
Much fresher vs the Nittnaus Pannobile.
On the palate smooth and with great flow. Nice, velvety tannins, zippy citrus acidity, damson plums, red currants, sour cherries. But also a core of irony minerality.
Very attractive, balancing nicely between the pure fruit and the savoury character. Plus some interesting edges on the side.
High drinkability, too!
A truly nice wine! — 4 months ago
