Steinberg GG Riesling 2019

Lyle Fass
9.6

GG’s here we go! What a nose. Dizzying mineral complexity. Huge vulcanized rubber. Peach flesh, rainer cherries, some apple honey, green apple, salt, flint. Hint of spice and fireplace. So so so good. Like an oily aspect. Soupy? But so fine, so delicate yet expansive and intense. Sickness. 9.6 nose. Stunning. And it will get better. Wow, what a massive step up from the lower wines. Unreal texture and refinement. Just sickness. This is very very high class juice. Massive minerality, massive concentration and stunningly pure. So so elegant yet it’s all one piece, like a finely tailored suit jacket. Nose keeps on expanding. So deep. Getting some Tolkien inner earth action here. Wow this is salty! Insane salinity, it dances so playfully. What a long finish. This is so exciting. Awesome finish that never lets go. Grippy. This is incredible and young but just a masterpiece. Might be a 9.7, but have more to taste, so might raise it later. Finish is 60 seconds. Sickness!! — 10 days ago

7 Terroirs Nahe Riesling 2019

Lyle Fass
9.1

My Gut Hermannsberg journey starts now. This is a blend of young vines from their 7 GG sites. Classic Nahe nose. White cherries, slate, minerals, lanolin and very expressive and aromatic. Seriously gorgeous minerality. Palate is superbly mineral with great freshness and slatey/mineral intensity. Almost a mineral sweetness and the finish is terrific. Awesome purity and balance. Just a terrific intro into what this estate can do. There is some white cherry and maybe some peach fruit but pithy for sure. This is a mineral bomb. — 10 days ago

Altenbamberger Rotenberg GG Riesling 2019

9.6

Another wow nose. More tropical and fruit driven than the Steinberg. But tons of airy minerals and super crystalline. Citrus oil. Wow really high tones crystallized citrus notes. Honey, flowers. So so complex. So different than Steinberg. I love terroir. Notes of white and oolong tea. Sick. 9.7 nose. So effin’ complex. (Effin’ = fucking). Wow. Wow. What a texture. This is preposterously mineral. Just a mineral wash. Texture has all the fruit, mineral, tea, honey and slate notes all integrated perfectly. The way they pack so much flavor onto a silk string versus a thick rope is really compelling. Intense crystalline structure and a wonderful piquant acidity and freshness. So long and well integrated. Bananas. (Not the flavor, what the wine is.) nose gets crazier and crazier with air. Wow the complexity is insane. Just insane. A special wine. Another that might be a 9.7. Really long and gets to every nook and cranny. — 10 days ago

Vom Vulkan Riesling 2019

They let me have a light box shot! Woot!

Baby Kupfergrube GG here. What a nose. Wow. Just sickness. 9.4 off the bat. Confectionary. Creamy. Peach. Rainer cherries. So clear and refined. Very expansive and airy. Peach fuzz. Barely ripe peach skin and pith. Just a terrific nose. Palate is so elegant and fine. Just as mineral as the Vom Schiefer but it caresses rather than bludgeons. Really classic, refined and again, that gut H intense, refined and complex minerality. Really mouthfilling and a lovely intense mineral roundness. Structured and intense. Very long and finishes super saline and salty.

Felseneck GG Riesling 2009

Nose : some petrol.

Palate. Pineapple. Mineral. Delicious. Very fresh.

As this opens you get some serious density.

Not this this will improve with age. But still tasty.

Dorsheimer Pittermannchen Kabinett Riesling 2019

🏅 Rating 89/100 (3,9⭐)

Off-dry Kabinett. Very floral, delicate. White flowers, honey. Stone fruit. On the palate has some citrus with light bitter finish. Petrol notes are very gentle and almost not traceable, just a hint. Gastronomic wine with only 8.0% Alc. and pleasant fruity sweetness, good for an easy apero or as an accompaniment for pan-asian / oriental food. Residual sugar is nicely balanced with signature Riesling acidity.

PITTERMÄNNCHEN is VDP.GROSSE LAGE classified South facing vineyard in Dorsheim, Nahe with clay slate soils. Spontaneous fermentation and maturation in big 1,200l barrels.

Riesling Brut

9.0

Nose is light green apple confectionary notes, minerals. Nose closes down after 5 minutes. Palate is nice. Loads of green apple, very very German. Green Apple jolly rancher. Luscious, mousse is good but in the background. Good length. Chewy. Balanced, pure, high acidity but well integrated. Juicy. Decent length. Good cut. — 10 hours ago

Vulkangestein Trocken Riesling 2012

Bought from a cellar sale- funny, I love this maker too @Erik Longabardi but I realize the trocken styled wines aren’t my thing( even though I love dry white wine). Still, a delicate affair- better on day 2. — 8 days ago
