Community Tasting Note

  • br_winelover Likes this wine: 94 points

    October 21, 2017 - A great friend has just arrived after two years travelling, and what better way to celebrate than with a great GG Riesling? However, this Kirchenstück is still a baby - I'd rather have waited for some 3-5 more years, since clearly there is room for improvement.

    One can notice that the aromas on the nose in particular are undeveloped - only faint notes of pineapple, white plum and vanilla are discernible. Due to the use of barrique, one can also sense some vanilla on the palate, but here it is more than buffered by a cornucopia of tropical fruits, which add great complexity to this bottle. It also boasts excellent persistence and a creamy and precise aftertaste.

    92pts on the nose, 95pts on the palate - and with a good chance of improvement, which my final grade reflects.
