Bu au super bowl avec la gang de Fouduvin de Sherby (Bulle, Meursault, Mike LM, Headless).
Encore une fois, un très beau Riesling, raffiné et complexe.
C'est bien équilibré, le sucre commence à être digéré et c'est tout simplement délicieux.
Impeccable, merci bien René.

One might ask why again a note on this wine. Just to shout to the world how wonderful these basic rieslings from great producers age. Light golden colour. Peach, minerals, smoke, bunch of yellow fruits. And years ahead of it, though it has reached maturity.

This is a very nice, slightly to moderately sweet wine with notes of apricot, pear, ginger and minerals. It has filled out more since the last time I tried this. Very nice kabinett.

Light gold in the glass; lovely petrol nuance hits you on the nose, and a "sweet" scent as well (pineapple?).

Light and racy on the palate; quite tart. Delicious certainly works as a descriptor here. To be honest, I am not a big fan of young German Riesling, but this is starting to get to that point where it has lost it's "baby fat", and I'm finding it fairly enjoyable right now.

2/6/2016 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 93 points

After two days open, this is singing tonight. The color is white-goldThe nose is incredibly rich and layered yet fresh, with notes of ripe pear, apple, mango, ginger, mint leaf, fresh cream and crushed stone minerality. Weighty textures like heavy silk caress the senses, as notes of spiced apple, mango, sweet herbs, and hints of orange saturate the palate. Its sweetness is perceptible, yet there is a brisk acidity keeping the experience fresh and lively. It finishes floral and refreshing with ripe stone fruits, citrus rind and hints of ginger lingering long.

Very pale yellow-gold color disappearing at the rim. The nose gives off aromas of jasmin, honeysuckle, and light sandalwood. The palate is full-bodied, creamy, with a velvety texture. Flavors of ripe crushed pineapple, pears, tangerine and lemon zest form the core of a pure, polished, heightened spirit that finishes long and sweet with a tangy twist at the end. Delightful! Drink now until 2026.

Golden straw colour with a fruity nose of citrus and green fruits. There is an earthy, minerality on the nose too.

There is a spritz on the tongue initially and more of the citrus fruits. Body is a little thin though acidity is pretty well balanced. It is crisp and dry. Very pleasant.

It's a shiver-inducing, spine-tingling joy to gulp this juvenile riesling juice! Lovely tension, created by high acidity (10 g/l), moderate sweetness (40 g/l), and tons of grapey fruit. Works right off the bat, no with peardrops or popsicles in sight. Brilliant stuff!

Good sweetness/acidity ratio, food friendly, very easy to like, might not offer any extraordinary aroma sensations, but very quaffable.

2008 Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Eiswein Auction

1/29/2016 - salil wrote: 99 points

The January auction Eiswein, with the old school (pre-95) label. This is absolutely spectacular, and more than lives up to the hype. Incredible power and concentration here, yet it's matched by tremendous precision, focus, and a sense of lightness on the palate that is completely at odds with the sheer intensity of the wine. The flavours are classic Eiswein; honey, high toned spices, and an array of candied citrus and peachy fruit with no apparent botrytis. The level of intensity here is hard to put into words, but each sip seems to resonate for minutes. Absolutely thrilling wine.

Energy! Nose alive right away with classic rubbery citrus and apple. Bright, bright lime and lemon ripeness, sweetness, acidity from start to finish, rounded out by just a bit of pleasant rubbery character, bleeding into sweet green olive and with bits of flint and grilled raisin on the finish. Feisty; even at just 9%alc, should cut through just about any food that comes its way. Energetic, again, and a lip-smacker. Terrific.

Dégustation Spätlesen (Salle de dégustation Laurier): Un nez discret. Il paraissait un peu mou en attaque, mais avec une belle complexité aromatique, un vin riche qui prend une 2ième longue vie en milieu de bouche avec une finale superbe, d'une grande complexité. 94 pts

Dégustation Spätlesen (Salle de dégustation Laurier): Nez riche et expressif, qui pétrole. La bouche est tendre et se rapproche d'un spats, ce qui le rend plutôt du type à accompagner les fromages, car trop riche pour l'apéro. Bien mais sans plus.

A private dinner (Restaurant Alinea Madrid, Madrid, Spain): Quite waxy already on the nose, floral, relatively light and supple in this vintage, ripe fruit but not a lot of structure, delicious Nahe fruit salad though, stylish but not a keeper. If this is a representative bottle, it is not developing as well as I anticipated.

Lovely Riesling, exotic candied spices and honeyed lime. Definite sweetness but with the right food just a great pairing -- sous vide egg with truffle honey and shaved truffles --wow.

Served with Thai food. Either this bottle or the one above it on the rack had been a leaker. Hard to tell as the capsule was sticky. No harm no foul though. Deep golden in color. The nose is really good with slight diesel, wet stones, sea air and slight grapefruits. Full bodied. Lovely velvety texture. On the palate, this is sweet. Certainly not cloying. Good acidity. Layers of flavors and minerality. Long finish. Just killer with Tofu Tamarind dish. Beautiful wine with years to go. For the record, looking at the cork, I don't think this was the leaker.
