Christmann's iconic 2014 Konigsbacher Idig Riesling trocken GG is pure, intense, fresh, and displays chalk and lemon flavors on the concentrated, complex nose. Full-bodied and round on the palate, very elegant, intense and firmly structured, but also full of finesse and a certain lightness, this is great dry Riesling with a very long, complex finish. Again, like in 2013, a great character and among the finest dry German Rieslings of the vintage. Just to see how it feels, I blended the Idig with the Königsbacher, which comes from the lower part if the Idig, and the wine was still terrific in its purity and terroir expression -- even fresher and leaner. - Stephan Reinhardt

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, May 2016
This palpably dense but texturally rich, amply juicy and mouthwateringly salt-tinged bottling is formidable from the starting gate and gains stature with aeration. Lavender and chalk dust mingle with sweat and sourdough... This palpably dense but texturally rich, amply juicy and mouthwateringly salt-tinged bottling is formidable from the starting gate and gains stature with aeration. Lavender and chalk dust mingle with sweat and sourdough yeastiness in a nose-wrinkling display of pungency that anticipates the palate’s multifaceted and intriguingly mineral personality. A bottle open for six days displayed even greater grip and resonance, not to mention clarity and focus, than the one freshly opened and proved highly agreeable without being in the least less formidable. -- David Schildknecht
