How do you describe perfection. Incredible nose, great depth, almost sweat lots of spices and then a dry taste with great salinity and tons of minerals. Clearly a master piece, thankful to drink a bottle. Sometimes words are not enough, this is one of these cases.

Insane nose or citrusy rose water and tons of minerals. Really aromatic. Ripe as the vintage suggests with intense power, citrus sap and concentration. Nice purity. Long long finish. Distinct and unique and the structure suggests maybe a few years more of agin. Great as always.

Really a treat to taste the '01, Keller's inaugural G-Max vintage. The wine grows more nuanced, savory complex with time.

I'm so fortunate to drink my third G-Max this year. This 2012 is still a Baby. Very withdrawn but still so much elegance & finesse. Wonderful ripe acidity and a finish that last forever. Let it sleep for 10-15 years and it will blow the f***ing roof off!

Maybe the best Riesling I've ever had. Extremely humbled that Klaus-Peter Keller shared this bottle with us. Layers, balance, acidity, length. All in a nearly perfect place. Wow!

One of the most layered wines I've ever had. Dried pineapple, yellow stone fruit, white flowers and pure stone. This G-Max is not a "In your face" wine. It needs time in the glass and gets better & better with time. Incredible balanced & elegant with (again) a shitload of stone components on the palate. I just miss the last kick of power on the back-end. A truly great wine and surely one of Germanys best Rieslings. Nevertheless the price point is ridiculous. The Abtserde is not so much "weaker" than the G-Max.

Just as we were finishing the last precious pale gold drops of #Roulot 2010, out stepped Mr. #Keller and the dance floor suddenly got real crowded. Strident, shimmering, opulent...what the Germans call, "strahlend"...layers upon layers of ripe, complex fruit that lingered in the finish.
No wonder this is one of the world's most sought-after white wines...it is truly incomparable!
