Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling 2012

This leaps out of the glass with abundant aromas of ripe pears, orange marmalade, wet stone, sea breeze

The palate is electric, with intense flavours of juicy granny Smith apple, peach, apricot, passion fruit, raspberry and fennel. very high acidity. Supremely complex and elegant.

Very long finish - like, the longest I’ve experienced in a Riesling to date. My mouth continues to water 30 seconds after the sip.

Fruit filled glacier water with depth and a mineral finish. Pretty long for an ‘instappertje’ — 6 days ago

Sugar levels are cranked up too much this vintage. Needs more acid and air. — 2 months ago

Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese Riesling 2004

Delicious. Not too sweet, just pristine balance. Nose is so intriguing; pear tart, buckwheat tea, husk cherries. Palate has kiwi, creme patissiere, and yellow fruits. Just entering its prime; plenty of primary fruits complicated with wonderful savory pastry notes. — 22 days ago

Thomas Haag Niederberg Helden GG Riesling 2013

Pop and pour. On thr nose: soft petrol, peach, grapefruit, herbs, soft leesy notes. On the palate: good acidity, grapefruit, steely notes, peach, ok density, but a touch thin and erring on the side of shrill on the mid. This fell off a bit quickly...was hoping for more length. Still, for my experience, almost worth it for the nose alone, and very, very good. — 20 days ago

Les Maltôtes Ipp13 Chardonnay Tressallier 2018

First sip is crazy. Totally unique.

Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.

Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.

Man. This is very good.

Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.

As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.

An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.

Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Bought from fass selections.
