2009 Wittmann Westhofener Morstein Riesling Großes Gewächs

Rheinhessen more

5/27/2015 - David Meddings wrote: 92 points

Half hour decant. Served quite cool. Notes from memory. Medium yellow with golden notes. Bouquet somewhat diminished with chilling but nevertheless golden orchard fruits in evidence. Brisk attack unfolding into a panoply of citrus, mango and minerality with a faint petrol note.

I wouldn't call this wine one dimensional by any means. I find good complexity and depth here. Brilliant wine making and very satisfying for all around the table.

Igen er det de grønne refleksioner i glasset, som fanger opmærksomheden, når Wittmanns Riesling vine skænkes. Allerede nuancen sladrer om den friskhed, der driver disse vine, og gemmer du vinen i 10 til 15 år eller mere vil du opleve, at udseendet forbliver forbløffende ungdommeligt.

Vinen dufter forførende godt. Der er friske associationer til eksotiske frugter og en nærmest æteriske blød nuance af hvide ferskner og snart modne pærer. Derpå er vinen voldsomt aromatisk i munden og den besidder en saftig kompleks tekstur hvor de tropiske frugter og de modne hvide ferskner smukt og elegant bliver matchet af de sprøde citrus elementer og den store mineralitet. Simpelthen en stor Riesling!

Couleur soutenue correspondant à l'évolution et au millésime certainement. Arômes bien nets et expressifs, agrumes confits, fruits exotiques, pointe d'hydrocarbure à peine décelable, en évolution.
Au palais, c'est sec, bien que riche, avec du corps, une intensité prononcée de saveurs portant sur la papaye, la mangue, en finale une pointe de minéralité qui resserre la bouche mais rien de déséquilibré, it's a crowd pleaser, au moins ce soir-là.

Nokså dyp gul. Moden gul steinfrukt, krydder, våt stein, ny plast og litt lys honning. Frukten dominerer det ene øyeblikket, mineraliteten det neste. Veldig moden og rik frukt i munnen, godt balansert av frisk syre og god spenst. Imponerende konsentrasjon og lengde, men mangler litt på kompleksitet og nyanser. Kraftig sak. 92p.

Definitely a very enjoyable Riesling, but not at the top of the GG hierarchy in 2011. This was a hot year in Germany, and it probably has influenced a little bit the Morstein "Grosse Lage", since this wine is not as complex as some of its siblings I have drunk lately (one competitor that shines in comparison is the Emrich Schönleber Monzinger Halenberg GG). 93 pts., and maybe it will improve a bit with some more time in the bottle.

Very similar to my previous tasting note of a year ago, but no carbon dioxide this time. The mineral energy, balance and nuance are superior to any of my previous bottles and accordingly I am scoring this one point higher. Effortless elegance paired with real intensity. At perfect peak.

Just a few notes. Still extremely youthful. Beautiful fruits, minerals and a great balance between acidity and sweetness. Will be great by the end of the decade. 92+

Frankly disappointing, this wine showed a haze of sweetness over its very ripe, soft fruit. I had to keep it very cold to preserve some sort of balance. The overall aromas and flavors are quite nice, but I struggle with the lack of balance in this wine.

I had a few 07 Wittmanns on a trip to germany in 10 -- the Morstein and Aulerde, and both were head turners. This little brother really came into its own and was showing shockingly well on this tasting. Great balance and precision, a hint of petrol, very poised, just showing wonderfully for a base trocken

A wonderful Riesling with a extreme powerful energy! Still some closed aromas of citrus, apples and minerals. At the palate - Lots of spices, mineral, rocks, and salt. A little bitterness, but not in a bad way. The most impressive is the aftertaste - for over- 1 and 1/2 minutes! A great wine, would be even better with approx five more years in the cellar.

One of the best wines I have tasted last Monday, so young but already very layered and with a huge complexity. Fruitbasket with a dazzling minerality, spiciness and herbs.

Still very young, a bit CO2, bonedry, sharp acidity, citrus flavours, but also salty minerality and a good finish. On day 2 and with a lot of air more balanced and structured. Needs more cellaring or with rustic / heavy food...

Almonds and some tropical fruit on the nose, peach, plums and pineapple on the palate, high acidity, more open and balanced after a few days but a bit to much alcohol for my taste.

Åpnet og satt til lufting i vid karaffel. Lys gul med et nesten grønnaktig skjær. Litt sjenert rett etter åpning, men de mest åpenbare aromaene går mot steinfrukt, mineralitet og sitrus. Hvert lite sniff bringer nye nyanser på banen.

I munn er det fruktdreven syrefest fra første sekund. Uhyre velbalansert. Ettersmaken domineres av syre og mineralitet og bare varer og varer.

Etter 6 timer i karaffelen:
Utrolig delikat duft der man kan finne igjen nesten hva man vil. Et sekund føles det mest som aromaene går i tropisk retning, før de endrer seg til friske grønne epler og igjen gjør helomvending til en blanding av de to iblandet litt honning. Samtidig dufter det så delikat at det er til å bli helt stum av. I munnen føles den nå nærmest vektløs før du blir truffet av sitrus og mineralitet, og den viser en lengde som er ikke annet enn imponerende. Etter godt og vel et minutt begynner en nærmest prikkende følelse som brer seg rundt i hele munnen, og er alldeles nydelig.

Etter 9 timer i karaffel:
Fortsatt samme inntrykk som for 3 timer siden, uten at den har endret seg nevneverdig.

Ikke drukket allverdens 2013-GG’er enda, men sammenlignet med Ungeheuer fra hhv Von Buhl og Von Winning er det jo liten tvil om hvem som leder vei mot stjernehimmelen, selvom de også var høyst respektable viner.

Dag 2: en dl vin under vanlig kork har stått i kjøleskapet. Like forbanna god i dag. Et underverk av en vin!

Rich, ripe and fruity Riesling, not as refreshing and mineral as some other recent vintages, golden color, lots of yellow apple fruit, ripe stone fruits and some oven baked lemon. A poweful style, ripe and rich but with good acidity. Fruit-forward and easy-drinking, but ultimately lacks the tension and freshness of other vintages I have so far tasted. Nevertheless an excellent wine. - 89 points

Beautiful bouquet with mainly ripe white fruits. On the palate full bodied and also elegant. Yellow and white fruits, a bit aromatic and good minerality. Beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness. A beautiful and refined wine. Can easily age a few more years.
