Young with ripping acid. Great density and structure. Lacked tension. Needs lots of time. #robertweil #grossesgewächs #rheingau #germany #riesling #trocken #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Marienburg Falkenlay Erst Lage Grosses Gewächs Riesling 2012

Also situated in the central slope along the Marienburg and is produced from, on average, 65 year-old vines that yield lovely Rieslings of great complexity and longevity. #2012 was one of the "easiest" harvests in recent years and the resultant wines were distinctly #fresh, #fruity and very attractively balanced--a classic #Mosel vintage! #ClemensBusch #Falkenlay #GrossesGewächs #Riesling — 3 years ago

Morstein Riesling GG 2015

#Keller #Morstein #Riesling #grossesgewächs. From 73 year old vines that yielded a mere 17 hl/ha... massively structured, big mouthful of gorgeous, ripe Riesling... this will need some serious bottle age to show its astounding potential. Amazing layered complexity... resonates endlessly! — 4 years ago

Grosses Gewächs Marienburg Rothenpfad Riesling 2011

This softer, more approachable 2011 #GrossesGewächs (#GG) needs advance #decanting in order to really express its enormous potential--layers of #tropical fruit notes and #mineral flavors abound--drinks now but has years of life ahead of it. #clemensbusch #riesling #Mosel — 4 years ago

Incredible concentration and a powerful nose. The palate was thick and fruity but finished dry. Great balance and length. #schaferfrohlich #grossesgewächs #gg #nahe #riesling #germany #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Marienburg Großes Gewächs Riesling 2013

And we begin with the #GG's! Only gray #slate from the middle section of the greater Marienburg and sourced from "younger vines" that are already 30 years old. A sleeping giant at this point but given ample time to breathe and open up in a decanter it is an impressive experience! #ClemensBusch #Riesling #Marienburg #GrossesGewächs #Mosel #terroirist — 3 years ago

Frühlingsplätzchen Großes Gewächs Riesling 2014

Here it is! One of the two #EmrichSchönleber #GrossesGewächs wines we released this month. A wine of tremendous finesse and complexity that is the more feminine in style of this fantastic winery's two main sites. The 2014s are very nicely structured and so crystal clear. They will benefit greatly from further bottle age and decanting prior to serving. #Frühlingsplätzchen #Riesling #GG #trocken #dry #Nahe — 3 years ago

Kirchspiel Riesling 2004

For me this was the #wine of the night at the #Escoffier dinner at #WeingutKeller... And in a double #magnum it could not have been better in terms of freshness and complexity. A ringing, linear core of ripe acidity together with a lining of medium-bodied extract all in perfect balance and harmony... the epitome of finesse and elegance. A fabulous accompaniment to the delicious cuisine that kept arriving course after course throughout the evening. When it comes to #dry #Riesling it simply doesn't get any better! #Keller #2006 #Kirchspiel #GrossesGewächs #GG #Rieslinglover — 3 years ago

Do you rate anything less than a 10 Dade? Seems like that you drink nothing but 10's. I definitely want your source. 😉

This wine is the bomb !

Halenberg GG Riesling 2014

Here's the Big Daddy of the #EmrichSchönleber estate and as one taster recently commented..."like liquid rocks" due to the high #slate content in the vineyard, which gives the wine its distinctive #mineral character. Again, this wine will benefit tremendously from not only further bottle aging, but also decanting or even double decanting prior to serving. #Halenberg #Riesling #GrossesGewächs #dry #trocken #Nahe

Hubacker Riesling GG 2015

This vineyard has been in the #Keller family since 1789 (think French Revolution!)... rich, creamy mouth feel with a fine core of ripe acidity, awesome structure, mouth-filling... a classic, beautifully balanced #Hubacker. A sleeping giant just waiting to blossom!
