Gemischter Satz Diebskinzig trocken Chardonnay Blend 2017

Lyle Fass
9.3

My first Jurgen wine! Nose is complex, perfumed, extremely mineral and smells super fresh. Some herbals and ripe veggies like fiddlehead ferns and bok choy. Very engaging, precise and detailed. Palate is so fresh, elegant and clean. Oh man I could drink a bucket of this. So juicy and precise with a mix of herbs, veggies and huge minerals. Man is this fresh, balanced, pure, juicy and complex. So long, precise and engaging. Palate has barely fruit but is all about minerals, freshness and precision, plus some nice beginner complexity. Long and so satisfying. A great start! As this opens there are stone fruits, peach, apricot and some pluot flesh but it’s still lean and also has a veggie edge with bok choy, fiddlehead ferns and some artichoke leaves. Awesome. — 5 days ago

Mölsheim Riesling 2019

9.4

The one and only. One of the best values in all of German wine. Stunning nose. Smells as deep as a GG. Just insane. The aromas of the fruit are so clean and so precise. Just amazing. Peach skin, peach flesh, apricot, nougat, caramel aromas show this is baby Hergott. It’s so precise and so clean but also nuanced and deep. Just a stunning nose. Glorious spice and deep deep minerals. Airy. So so killer. Blind I’d say GG. Wow. I love this wine. So so salty in 2019! U la la! Juicy and so concentrated but elegant and energetic. Sappy peach and apricot fruits on the finish. But also laser like, rapier like minerality. Amazingly pure and deep. So balanced and serene. A zen like experience. Long finish that alternates between fruit, saline and gorgeous mineral. Amazing mouthfeel and purity. Just a stunning Molsheim. Clean finish that just echoes and slowly dissipates. So beautiful.

After some air wow. Herbs on the nose. Hit of honey and the minerals start to waft. Stunning balance and freshness and complex spice and ridiculous fruit on the finish. This is amazing.

Micke

Solveigs Pinot Noir 2011

MICHAEL COOPER
8.9

MICKE presents a top cru of confusing character. Harmonious coexistence of exotic fruit flavours and the traditional #Burgundian type. This wine only will be vinified in excellent vintages with a strict limitation of bottles.
thename
MICKE stands as a synonym for ‚
#Mickeberg‘, the original designation of a #vineyard site.
thetaste
MICKE develops exotic dark berry flavours after a long-term maturation. A Pinot Noir of exceptionel character. The vineyard block offers a broad aromatic flavour world. Tannin is nearly not perceptible.

Rastlose Liebe Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Lyle Fass
9.3

Wow what a nose. Super citrus, green herbals, sage, some lemongrass, so complex, floral as well. Melon, green and honeydew. A great blind SB as no grass, piss or gooseberry. So complex. So unique. Palate is insanely fresh, complex and has terrific structure and depth. Wow. This is major and a very serious SB that calls Graves and also Germany. It’s rich, complex and super nimble. Palate is super focused and so precise. Fruit is blend of various citrus, hint of vineyard stone fruits and loads of minerals on the finish. Long ass finish as well. Gets to every nook and cranny. Some crannies have fruit and some nooks have minerals.

After air the fruit starts to come out aromatically. Stone fruits, citrus and even confectionary aromas. Concentrated and earthy. Terrific finish. Almost 9.4.

This nose is absurd. High toned. High high toned! Woweee. So so mineral. Just insane. Peach juice. So decadent. Melon. Huge minerals. This nose gets so deep in your nostril your throat tickles. Floral like crazy. Some lychee. Spice. Like intense spice. This is an unforgettable nose. I smell a lot of wine and this is up there. Holy shit. The over all intensity combined with the purity and jaw dripping detail is incredible. Citrus zest emanates after some air. Palate is just luscious to the max. Sweet peaches and inner mouth florals like crazy. Rich, decadent and so hedonistic. Juicy and insanely pure. God level juicy. Structured and firm which suggests long aging. Tropical but so pure. Decadence beyond belief but bathed in beauty. Amazing finish. — 5 days ago

One of the best Gutsweins in Germany. Superbly mineral, green apple, barely ripe apricot, saline aromas, so clean and fresh. Palate is juicy, lean and has green apple skins and some stone fruits and washes your palate with minerals. Super juicy, elegant and refined. Precise and linear. Just terrific. — 16 days ago

Chardonnay R 2018

Lyle Fass
9.5

Wow. This is revelatory. Ridiculous wine. Like elite St. Aubin 1er Cru from Lamy or PYCM. Nose is completely and utterly unique and original. Smells like no other Chardonnay but definetly smells like it comes from Germany. As it should. Insanely complex nose of spices, flowers, a hint of the most discreet wood ever, but it adds so much. Lifts all the other aromas. Really lifts the florals which are super pungent and detailed. What a nose. 9.5/9.6. Sickness. Palate is insane awesomeness. It has it all. Texture, freshness, depth, huge minerality and a big core that suggests mid term aging potential. The finish is like a mile long. This is so energetic, so detailed, so linear and so German. Revelatory. Omg what texture and it is so so juicy. Fruit is lean. Some ripe apples and pears but also hints of apricot. So good. — 5 days ago

Jaspis Baden Syrah 2014

Lyle Fass
9.5

I loge this wine and been many years since I’ve had the 2014. Bright nose of black berry, black cherry, cocoa, bittersweet dark chocolate, game, flowers, feral aromas, huge limestone footprint, floral and so so lifted. Just a crazy aroma. Wow. Palate has freshness and energy for days while showing berry fruit, huge minerals, some sweet fruit, a hint of oak, and insane length. Needs air but man is this an epic Jaspis Syrah. So textured. Big tannins and acid but man what a finish and structure. Fantastic wine. — a day ago
