  • Awesome nose highly indicative of the varietal: soft petrol and ethanol, ripening white fruit, green apple, pears and white peaches. Supremely fresh and pure with cool wet slate and stone minerality. Equally as good on the palate, nice light weight but with great energy and vibrancy. Acid keeps this very alive and interesting. Very flavourful and well put together. Awesome.

  • A very special wine. In the beginning a little bit broad in the palate. You smell and taste ripe peaches, Honey, yellow ripe fruits, but it ends with an elegant finish, very pure and animinating acididty. The aftertaste reminds me to peaches. In ever guessed Rieling. Didn't reach his peak but close to it. 94-95

  • Fioranos and Great Bottles (Tim's, SF): Moderate gold. Nose is dominated by petrol, with a hint of complex floral and citrus fruit. Restrained and very cool-climate, high-toned.
    On the palate, a complex melange of cool terpenic fruit - ripe lemon, cool stony melon, fresh flowers. Well-lit flower petals, dipped in gold.
    Slight RS, maybe only 3g. Medium body, elevated alcohol - 13%? (correct), super high acid - strong, clean (less malic) and stony. Very slight impression of saffron (botrytis). Slaty and mineral finish, with intensity and persistence.

    This wine has impressive integration. The fruit is complex but tightly wrapped up. It requires close listening. The best of its class I’ve tasted, but really just a hair better than some of my other favorites. At north of $200, I don’t think I’ll be seeking this out again, but it was educational to taste this. A deserving benchmark Riesling of Alsace.

    Score: Between 9 and 9.5

  • Fiorano and Great Bottles Dinner (Tim and Elliott's Place, San Francisco): Life golden color; nose is aromatic with lots of petrol, slight lime and minerals; palate is light bodied, medium-plus acid, lime schist soil, dry, clean; long finish. The pinnacle of dry Alsatian riesling, and it's very enjoyable but I wouldn't pay the going price for it. 93-94

  • I don't like it, I love it. Imagine a fresh bouquet of lime, stone and white flowers, dipped in a little petrol. The dense and intense, dry, young Riesling flavors flood the palate and just go on forever and ever. A fabulous wine that hasn't yet approached it's full potential.
