Community Tasting Notes 5

    July 9, 2021 - This is great. complex nose with some salty minerality, blossom, fresh apple, fennel. A palate which isn't in line with the nose which makes the wine even more complex. Big palate with more tropical fruit like pineapple, peach. Very long finish, great wine!

    April 18, 2020 - At the very beginning ! Sooo young. It s all there but wrapped thight in a shell. After 1,5 h it showed a tiny bit of what will happen. Huge minerality , long and lovely. Wait !!! Next in 2023 94+

    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.

    May 6, 2016 - Still very young. I'm convinced this one will develop.

    June 10, 2015 - Less punchy on the nose than Kalkofen, finer and more elegant with lots of ripe fruit, creamy, slightly oaky, saline. On the palate zesty and super vibrant with lots of depth and complexity. Fine and really well balanced. Wonderful length. Great future. 95-96+
