Clear, medium intensity lemon color.

The nose is youthful with a medium aroma intensity. Aromas of fresh grapes, lime, melon, honeysuckle, white flowers, saffron, ginger, green pear and tropical fruits. Lovely Riesling-nose!

Sweet on the palate with a medium(+) acidity and medium(+) body. The flavor intensity is medium(+) with flavors of tropical fruits, green pear, sweetened lime juice, honeysuckle, saffron and stony minerals. The finish is medium(+) with a refreshing whiff of green apples and sweet lime.

Once again I'm in love with the wines from Dönnhoff! This has high intensity and concentration but still leaves your palate with a light, refreshing feeling. Lovely wine! Still young today but drinking very well. This will probably keep for another 10-15 years.

Delicate nose with lots of Riesling character, citrus fruit, a little petrol, nuts, cream, strawberries, white redcurrants, gräddglass, violettes and a little butter.

Outstandingly well balanced with lots of sweetness but a piercing acidity giving the wine structure. Creamy viscosity without feeling sticky. High intensity and a long, long finish. This is just as good as it should be!

Une robe claire puis une déclinaison de fruits blancs et jaunes, une robe ronde mais légèrement minérale, une finale d'une longueur modérée sur une note de chêne je crois. Un beau rapport qualité/prix et qui se marierait très bien avec les plats asiatiques relevés.

Ma première expérience avec ce vigneron. Très intéressant, on sent la complexité potentielle sous la déclinaison de fruits exotiques (litchis) et de fruits blancs mûrs (pêches, nectarines), avec une pointe d'épices (muscade). En bouche, c'est rond et gras: ça se boit très bien. Impression d'un moelleux car la sucrosité est assez élevée. J'en rachèterais mais le garderais quelques années.

Post tasting dinner at Golden Century: Orange peel, mineral, pear, light honey and spice. Well balanced sweetness, feels seamless on the palate. Has a good acid kick that moves it along with purpose and drive. Rich but also refreshing.

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.

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.

5/15/2015 - Lilja Likes this wine: 90 points

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.
