    July 18, 2018 - 94(+?)pts. Great Riesling, but I'd rather have the Wachstum Bodenstein from Prager in 2015. Both are excellent anyway.

    September 14, 2017 - Prager Dinner with Robert Bodenstein (Chicago, IL): This wine is clearly a sibling of the Achleiten. There's no way around that conclusion. The difference here is that the Achleiten is a bit more fruit forward, rounder, and sweeter, while the Klaus shows a bit more steely, with more of a focus on salinity and minerality. This is a little more austere, which I found made it a little more difficult to enjoy in comparison.

    April 30, 2016 - Like Riesling Achleiten a bit more restrained on the nose. "Depth, purity, intensity" is what I wrote down. On the palate like a super-charged version of Achleiten, darker and brighter even, the fruit is juicy and there is lots of perfectly well integrated acidity. Slightly spicy. Lots of minerality. Incredibly long and intense finish. Power and laser-like precision. A monumental wine. 97-98+
