The attack on the palate is really piquant. This is a dense and concentrated, firmly structured and very expressive Auslese that tastes less sweet, due to the piquant acidity and well-defined minerality. The wine need 5-10 years to settle, but the ageing potential should be really terrific here. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

Fresh lime and grapefruit lend welcome primary juiciness; maritime minerality supplies mouthwatering complementary salinity; and piquancy of peach kernel supplies further pushback to the extravagant peach, melon and liquid floral perfume on a plush, glycerol-rich, expansive palate. The lush finish lingers luxuriantly and decidedly sweet, but manages to avoid turning treacly. (The Kühns also rendered a “regular” 2015 Lenchen Auslese, but it sold out so rapidly and completely that by September of the following year, they could not locate a bottle to open for me.) -- David Schildknecht collapse
