    November 12, 2019 - Really not sweet at all but very extracted and rich for such an aged Riesling. It has a wonderful silky texture with bright green and orange fruits with good acidity underneath. The finish is still tangy and complex with notes of petrol and minerals. Really good Riesling that will keep going for years.

    November 11, 2019 - 1990 Dinner Hosted by Cedric Nicaise at Eleven Madison Park (Eleven Madison Park): Awesome acidity and balance. Big body. Not overtly sweet. Hard to put down.

    July 7, 2019 - Dense, concentrated, powerful, off-dry, with orange zest fruit, a touch of alcohol showing. May have been still better in the past.

    November 17, 2018 - Straw-yellow in the glass. In teh nose it's petroleum and rubber, passion friut, botrytis and shattered granite. In the mouth the acidity is well preserved and keeps everything in line. More rubber and petroelum, tropical fruit, honey. A sweetnes that isn't sweet at all the way only trimbach manages... good stuff indeed. Drinks perfect now but will hold for decades.
