Kirchenstück GG Spätburgunder 2017

Lyle Fass
9.5

Been over a year since I’ve had this and really dug it last time. Glorious cooling spices. Lovely mineral and earthen scents. Oolong tea. Tree bark. Perfectly ripe cherries. Just gorgeous. So complex and layered. So delicate and pure. 9.5 nose. Palate is dynamite. Full of energy, power, concentration and depth. Very Red Riesling. So sappy. Ripe, sweet and velvety tannins. Superb structure and sap. Just brilliant. — 9 days ago

Morstein Riesling GG 2018

Packed with power, energy and killer concentration. This is a serious Riesling. Simultaneously there is an incredible elegance and weightless intensity. There is laser focus and pin point precision in its citrus and mineral infused backbone and electrified acidity.

It has such presence and depth on the midpalate and a perfect transition to its exceptionally long finish. Even in its infancy it shows such an incredible expression of the varietal, and I can only imagine a remarkable future ahead. I haven’t been graced with the luck to the try the G-Max yet, but this is my favorite GG.

Holy shit this is good. Lyle captures it well. It does have a great nose, expressive as heck but different than burgundy or anywhere else. I really want more. — 2 days ago

Mölsheim Riesling 2018

Nose is nicely mineral. Very elegant.

Palate minerality is almost Stinging. Spicy. Wow. A great vintage of this wine. Perfect mineral fruit balance. Dense. Clings to the palate. Perfect lemon. Like a sweet lemon in that it has that balance but it’s not sweet.

Am Schwarzen Herrgott Riesling Auslese 2017

This is an schwarzen hergott auslese. Which is a sweet wine. The dry wine is a grosses gewachs.

Nose is so clean. Hint of botrytus. But it’s just an element.

Palate is so fresh. Green apple and a hint of tropicality. Mineral. Juicy. So good.

Kirchspiel Großes Gewächs Riesling 2018

So much more open than my last btl, and stunning. Notes from 2 hrs open. Loads of lemon and soft underripe peach, leesy notes, and then wave after wave of minerality. On the palate: fantastic acidity; lemon peel, which is so dense. Lemon oil and loads of minerality. So long on the finish. Just amazing, but still so primary. Wow. — 18 days ago
