Community Tasting Note

  • salil wrote: 80 points

    March 10, 2018 - Not impressed by this - the most disappointing wine I've had from Donnhoff in some time. The aromatics are pretty, offering plenty of bright fruit, honey, and spice, but the palate is hollow and flat, showing little in terms of either depth or energy. It feels soft and creamy in the manner of some of the weakest '99s I've had, with very little complexity.

    3/18/18, 7:52 PM - My impression there's been quite a bit of variation from bottle to bottle for this wine from my own cellar and from those cellars whose owners have in my view compatible palates, and that's true of the 2000 version as well. In general the 2000 is a little better. Both of them are a little tired, but not flawed to the point that they would get a classic 80-score. Perhaps it's a little easier to be an old Nahe wine, with its breadth of fruit, than a Mosel, with its fine transparency. Interested to see if you ever get another one of these to taste soon, Salil. I always read your notes with pleasure.
