Wow! Vraiment un grand riesling sec, certe trop jeune, mais quel plaisir! D'un porfil exotique, doté d'une grande puissance, minérale avec d'une belle acidité pour équilibrer le tout. Excellent!!

A private dinner (Restaurant De Echoput, Hoog Soeren, Netherlands): Fresh, slightly lactic, the customary Nahe fruit salad, elegant, subtle smoky honey, hint of Eiswein-apple, fleshy fruit, subtle bitters, not big or sweet by BA-standards but has real drive, elegance, line and length.

Intens nese med masse mineraler, nesten som man kan lukte syren her. Hvite blomster og grønne epler. konsentrert og behagelig anslag. høy syre. lang sitruspreget avslutning. flott balanse. meget god kvalitet. for en vin!

Tropical fruit, yellow stone fruit, white flowers and minerality on the nose. Ripe fruit mixed with lime fruit on the palate, slightly sweet at first but there is lots of acidity. Wonderfully balanced. Mineral, precise, long. Delicious. Should evolve further. 91-92+

Riper and more residual sugar than I expected. Zingy and delicious. Drinks more like some of the donhoff spatlese wines, with wet stone and great citrus fruit salad.

Had this wine a year or so ago and my notes are entirely consistent: Pale strawlike color. Nose of stones and citrus. Light to medium bodied, fairly crisp acidity with mild sweetness up front, dry finish. A bit on the flabby side; could use a bit more acidity

Really needs air, for the first hour it shows some nice ripe peach and berry fruit, but it's oddly soft and diffuse and lacking acid. Eventually though the wine fills out and firms up and acidity turns up, picking up all sorts of intense secondary nuances in the process, turning more citrusy and earthy and pine foresty and floral. This is a big, rich wine, but the extract is amazingly soft and silky, and the length is outstanding. GGs are a category of which I've been somewhat skeptical (I tend to prefer the pradikat wines), but this is a compelling example to the contrary.

Beaucoup de classe ici grâce à sa pureté cristalline et à sa finesse d'arômes, en bouche c'est précis, rond et tendre à la fois mais toujours frais. J'étais sur un beau sancerre en raison de la trame végétale noble qui évoquait le sauvignon blanc. 91-92

Une couleur pâle très surprenante, un nez intriguant qui ne dévoile pas le liquoreux fabuleux qui nous attend à la première gorgé. Des arômes de pêches, de poires, un léger sucre. Un équilibre grandiose, excellent !

Was celebrating a work milestone and looking for an appropriately celebratory bottle. What a Riesling! Pristine/crystalline, so light on the mouthfeel. Some other '04s have been weighty but not this one. Not yet in its secondary phase, so the core flavors were still in the pitted fruit spectrum. Served with a ginger & parnsip chicken thigh dish. Really great wine, best Riesling I've had in a while.

Very similar to the 2003 vintage on the nose.

Medium(-) intense aromas of apples, pears, white Basset's wine gums, struck match sticks and wet wool.

High acidity, slightly tarter than the '03. Medium body, medium+ intensity and a long finish.

A bigger wine compared to the '03, with a bit more punch but also rawer edges. But lacking the elegance and refinement on the palate that I really enjoyed in the '03.

Give this a few more years in the cellar if possible.

Medium(-) intense nose with aromas of fresh citrus fruit, honey, peach, some match stick minerality and a little funk, as in wet wool.

High acidity, deliciously well balanced with the sweetness. Light and fluffy, with a medium body, medium+ intensity and a long finish. This is not a big wine, but an elegant and very easy drinking one.

Will keep for another couple of years, but drinks very well right now!

Tasted together with the 2004 vintage.

Beautiful wine. Showcases the Donnhoff depth of flavor but light touch. Nahe cherry in evidence along with ripe yellow fruits. A welcome but more than needed match with grilled Andouille chicken sausages, and delicious on its own at the conclusion of dinner. Certainly this will age gracefully but I'll drink them over the next couple of years for the ebullient fruit.

Struggling to put this drinking experience into words. So much flavor and complexity yet so light and nimble on it's feet. Laser-like precision. Ethereal yet infinite. Aromas and flavors of lilacs, acacia flowers, honeysuckle blossoms, honeycomb, stone fruit, citrus zest...then more flowers. The sugar levels could be 30 g/l or 130 g/l, I have no idea b/c the acidity balances it out so perfectly.

Oeil : Jaune doré, robe brillante
Nez : premier sur le citron, puis le citron... Cela évolue vers la fraise, le caramel salé. En finale on revient vers le citron, les agrumes
En bouche : très grande digestibilité comme d'habitude avec une très belle persistance aromatique. On retrouve des arômes similaires en bouche.
Tout le monde a adoré, comme d'habitude !

Gorgeous, aromatic nose on the Hermannshöhle GG 2012—it is a different animal as compared with the Dellchen I reviewed yesterday—it opens with notes of dried apricot, kerosene, white flowers and a top note of blanched almond. Full and lush on entry, with glycerol up-front leading into Asian pear, lemon drop, and chalk. While not as lean and mineral-driven as the Dellchen, this is a different expression of Riesling, equally worthy of praise. The finish is outstanding, punctuated by saline and minerals. 13.5% ABV

The 2012 Dönnhoff Niederhauser Dellchen Grosses Gewachs (GG) is Focused with a driving intensity. The nose is not intensely aromatic, but then, this wine is slightly cold: freshly cut green apple, fresh spearmint, lemon thyme. On the palate, it feels bone dry, despite some silky glycerol that adds weight and body. The backbone is tersely electric. Tension amid terroir-driven notes of calcareous soil, wet sea shell, fleur de sel, dried pear, pink grapefruit rind all leading into a mouthwatering finish.
