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. — 11 days ago
Definitely a bit off kilter, but I love it. Strawberry and cherry fruit, but just a bit, balanced by vegetal green pepper and spearmint, with a certain weirdly well integrated bitter funk. Gorgeous velvet texture. Grows on me with every minute open. — 6 months ago
Wow! First Battenfeld 2019 and this is sick! Superb confectionary nose like God dropped down from the sky the best cotton candy ever. Amazing peach flesh and peach skin. Apricot. Superb minerals. Luscious and juicy with awesome freshness and minerality. So alive and engaging. Commands your attention. Concentrated and so pure with peach, apricot fruit and hella minerals. So balanced and pure. Just a brilliant Gutsweine. What energy and inner mouth aromas. Sappy and terrifically deep but also just insanely refreshing, linear and mineral. — 11 days ago
@delectable battenfeld spanier frauenberg auslese
Wow. This will sound awful but “dessert wine for smart people”. Sorry. It’s the best description I can give.
Apparent sweetness is minimal. Nose is holy shit. Apricot. Mineral. So intense.
Palate is so mineral for an auslese. Dense apricot. Perfect balance. GOD this is good. No botrytus. So clean.
I had this with ricotta honey sour orange zest and pignoli. I am prepared to go to my maker. — 7 months ago
Lovely nose, pitted fruits, herbs, sugar snap peas, palate is elegant, complex, bitter fruits, electric and round, pitter patter of a finish. Beautiful purity, energy and freshness. Super herbal and round. Amazingly pure and dense but also light and energetic. — a month ago
Unreal wine. Best Battenfeld Pinot GG ever. Unreal nose. Spicey cherries, sour cherries, mid season cherries, hint of cassis, loads of earth, mineral and limestone. Smells like Red Riesling. Palate is just gorgeous. So so so red Riesling. Gorgeous sweet cherry fruit. Caressing. The palate spacious and squeezes gorgeous elegant and ethereal fruit. Mid season cherries galore. Energetic and pure, with stunning balance and depth. So so elegant and clean. Amazing mouthfeel and the most elegant and refined tannins. What a finish. Concentrated and deep with lovely ripe cherry skins lingering on the finish. Just awesome. A masterpiece. After 1 hour this is incredible. Super elegant. Very high qualify stuff. — 7 months ago
