    April 5, 2019 - Lys farge selv med alder. Litt petro i starten som blåser vekk med lufting. Sitrusfrukter og honningblomster. Hvit sjokolade. Pen og ren nese! Forholdsvis lett i munnen med moderat sødme inn og syrlig midtparti før den munner ut i en halvsøt avslutning med bra lengde. Litt voks og honningtoner, noe tropisk frukt og sitronskall. Perfekt moden for min del, men vil nok holde en del år til. Drukket over 3 dager uten å klappe sammen.

    March 14, 2018 - Forgot that I had this last June. Nose shows drier than the palate, with dried grapefruit and pith. A touch sweet on the palate, but not over the top, with loads of sweet grapefruit. Clean finish. Good, but overshadowed by Keller.

    March 10, 2018 - 9% alcohol.

    Surprisingly pale and youthful light green color for a wine almost 20 years old. The nose feels fine-tuned and delicate with sweet, developed aromas of wizened yellow fruits, some petrol, a little bit of ripe quince, a hint of dried peach and a toasty touch of oven-fresh custard pastry. The wine is semi-sweet, full-bodied and pretty balanced with moderate acidity. There are nuanced, developed and complex flavors of beeswax, some peachy stone fruits, a little bit of aged Riesling's creaminess, hints of stony minerality and a touch of dried pineapple. The finish is pure, juicy and complex with nuanced flavors of ripe red apples, some sweet lemon curd notes, a little bit of developed creaminess, hints of honeyed richness and a touch of slatey minerality.

    A beautiful, rich and harmonious Riesling that is in a beautiful phase right now, but is also surprisingly youthful for a wine almost 20 years old. Although the wine is starting to show the first signs of tertiary characteristics, I still doubt it is on its plateau of maturity yet - most likely it will take another 5-10 years for this wine to reach its apogee. Overall very lovely and harmonious effort, good value at 20€.

    June 3, 2017 - '82 Bordeaux and Friends (Rene's): A touch sweet on the nose, which shows good floral notes, with a touch of honeysuckle and lime, but not much petrol, soft on the palate with ok acidic, finishes a touch sweet, but pretty good.
