Just wow. Elegant, complex, slightly creamy. Herbs, wet hot rocks, pithy, sous bois, bittersweet. Amazing. Slightly flat on the bubbles is the only issue.

Well constructed. Lemon, flint, sate, and round pear. Leesy weight. Creamy, minerals. Wish the Riesling notes could push through the bubbles, but good wine nonetheless.

Spend some time with this sparkling Sekt from renowned Riesling tamer, Peter Lauer. It’s nuanced and has subtle varietal character but is very refined, elegant, and complex. It is completely bone dry and you’ll have to work for shy aromas of smoke, slate, and wet rocks before high toned aromas of lemon peak through as it warms.

Laser beam bubbles, but still manages to be rich. Will crush any comparable Champagne at the price. More please.

2012 - precise, food-friendly. Slate-like minerality but not austere.
