    February 22, 2017 - Deep straw colour with a golden hue. Evolved aromas of petroleum and ripe, yellow fruits (yellow plums, peach). Full bodied with a silky, oily mouthfeel balanced by just the right amount of acidity, Never feels heavy or cloying although the alcohol is quite high (14 %) and the residual sugar is considerable (I guess). Given the "large" middle palate, the finsish and aftertaste is a bit dissapointing, ending quite quickly. A nice wine, excellent with sushi, but lacks the complexity one should expect from such a wine. At its peak now, but will keep for several years.

    June 25, 2015 - My first experience with a Riesling from this region, the nose presented a very interesting petroleum odor which I have learned is typical out of better examples of this varietal. Green apple, light peach and some minerality mingle with the crisp acidity to make this a great first foray into Alsace Riesling, many thanks to Tim for affording me the opportunity to experience this.

    June 24, 2015 - With just 60 minutes of slow-ox, this was ready to go; it remained in fine shape over the following 2 hours. Seriously pure, with really fresh, ample acids; the kind of structure that will no doubt see this well into the next decade if you should choose to hold it that long. It's been some months since I had one of Laurence's wines, and now that the memory/taste is so fresh in my mind, it'll be hard to keep my hands off the rest of my stash (read: I'm weak, and will buy more, probably today). This just drips with class and nobility, love it. highly recommended

    Served non-blind.

    March 29, 2014 - Very light yellow. All lime at first with some underripe pineapple appearing. Light to medium weight, nicely layered feel. Dry, focused, and citrusy with zesty acidity and long soil-inflected finish. Excellent and no crime to open now or hold a little longer. Interesting to compare to the 2011 Knoll Smaragd we had last night-delicate and less dense, just as a German Riesling would seem after an Alsatian one!

    February 14, 2014 - Perfect pairing with the scallops. Showing a bit of fat on the palate, but still vibrant with good cut. Lots of orchard fruit and minerals, bright acidity, and just a lot going on. Hard to stop sniffing and sipping!
