Full-bodied, lush and salty, this is an enormously tensioned and intense Riesling that reveals a concentrated fruit core with a long, elegant and tensioned finish. The texture is almost silky and the minerality perfectly integrated. This is one of the finest of the 2016 GGs from the Mosel. Bottled in late September 2017; tasted February 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt

The finish is long with a lovely interplay of herbal and buttery notes. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes and Respekt certified. - Stuart Pigott

This displays a striking sense of density allied to alcoholic levity and transparency, finishing with vibrant, shimmering interaction of fruit and mineral elements. Conceivably it’s just more developed (in an entirely positive way) than are this collection’s other Grosse Gewächse (whereas Falkenlay was notably recalcitrant in 2015), but my suspicion is that this will retain an edge over its siblings in clarity and animation.- DS
