Unreal nose. Lime zest and flesh along with sick slate. Such well defined slate. Some ripe apricot and other fruits that veer towards just tropical. Such a sense of refinement. Airy, salty and slatey. Wow. So ethereal. Nothing like this. Unreal peach. Sickness. Nose is a 9.9. Zowie Batman complexity. So much energy on the palate. Wow. Insane acids and grip and that extra feinherb dosage adds such a textural relevance. But man is this fine and so structured. Sappy as all can be. Stimulating and salty. Man is this long and also needs mega mega air. You can sniff this so hard and it keeps giving more nuance. The complexity is off the charts and the structure and acidity is so intense. This is a 75 year wine and better in 10. But wow. A monument to the vintage. As long as any 19 i’ve had.
FOUR days later not only is this a 10, this is the greatest Riesling I’ve had in my life. — 4 days ago
Light and airy, with persistent bubbles. A fun aperitif to enjoy with light snacks. — 12 days ago

Fresh, juicy & cool.
Pure nose full of ripe, yellow, juicy & sweet apples. Plus a whiff of fresh pastry dough and just a hint of something cool & pure underneath.
On the palate this is just so juicy. Fresh. Apples & pears at the forefront, ripe and succulent yet there’s a brilliant fresh balance and a cool, slightly salty finish.
Beautiful terrace sipping but this has the weight & depth to take on some fish, too.
Delightful. — a month ago

Look at my previous note. Add age. That’s why this is a 9.9. Just the best 19 Auslese I’ve ever had. Masterful. Nervy tropical fruit. Elegant like nothing else. Loooooooong. Why is this not more well known? I did a poor job I guess. Also there is like none. — 21 days ago
Nose is the apogee of elegant richness. Blind I might guess god’s condrieu. A touch of honey. Gorgeous.
Palate is honey. Minerals. Some other gorgeous stuff I can’t describe. Still so elegant. Rainwater of the gods.
As this aerates the internal aromatics are nectar like. Honey made from nectarine flowers.
Finish lingers like a lovers sweet kiss at dawn. — 2 months ago
