Slatey nose with mid to high note fruit. Light petrol and lemon zest. Overall quite clean for its complexity. Citrus and jackfruit on the palate with beautifully integrated acidity. Served with steamed belons.
Riesling Dinner (La Mangeoire): Big dose of petrol and ethanol, far better than the 2010 Dellchen GG. Quite reductive with some white rubber and traces of smoke and sulphur. Rich on the palate, again far more so than the Dellchen enjoyed alongside, with an intriguing and unique texture too. Great drinking - would love to try the again in ten years... or some '00s.

(Dönnhoff Hermannshöhle Riesling Grosses Gewächs) ($75.00) The grandest vintage since the magnificent ’05. Already amazingly complex delineated aromas and flavors; stupendous length and fervid concentration – it occupies your mouth.
