    June 8, 2019 - Nahe^3: 10 vintages of Halenberg, Hermannshöhle and Felseneck + X (@Private location, Frankfurt): *** brief note from an extensive tasting ***
    Glass: Gabriel Gold
    Tasted blind. Bottle opened about 2-4h before, double decanted before serving.
    Beautiful open nose, very elegant and airy. Good precision and rather cool for this warm vintage. Never broad or fat. Like all wines this evening a wonderful mineral core. Good pressure and tension. Approachable, but still young. Give it a few more years. 92-93+

    June 2, 2019 - Eine nahezu perfekte Symbiose aus leicht tropischer Frucht, perfekt eingebundener Säure, der typischen Hermannshöhle-Mineralität, einem nicht zu vollen Körper und einer wunderschönen Würze. GG at it´s best!!! Jetzt und noch mindesten 5 , wahrscheinlich mehr Jahre auf diesem Niveau! Großer Wein!!!

    May 18, 2019 - As I was sipping this wine during a movie at home, and was decomposing this lovely Riesling in my mind, trying to explain to myself why I still prefer the minerality and delineation of dry, white Burgundy, my wife suddenly said: “this is too sweet”, which brings it to the point really. This might be more about 2011 than about Hermannshoehle, but while very good, I would rate this even higher if it was drier and a touch more precise. Reductive upon opening, needs about 20 min in the open bottle. 93

    April 29, 2019 - Magnum, not blind
    Typical Nahe, fruity, saline but not that precise as usually from HH get used. I prefer at the moment 08, 09 and 10. 04 and 05 are great now. The fruit is reluctant as often but the length is shorter than usually. 92-93

    (Dönnhoff Hermannshöhle Riesling Grosses Gewächs) ($69.00) The best since the legendary 2005, and the best dry Riesling I’ve yet tasted from Germany. Ridiculous delineation and spice; world-class doesn’t begin to describe it; intricacy, a kinetic mélange of dough, fruit, mineral; brilliant but effortless, a virtuoso playing within her ability a fiendishly difficult piece. Searching, endless finish. This I think is the result of Helmut’s larger holdings in the site – the ability to select with utmost care, and to make a being like this. +++
