    July 4, 2019 - This bottle ended up with a protruding cork, possibly from shipping during winter. Since this was part of about 3 cases of 2015 VDP auction wines, I wanted to scout this to check for damage. Often hard to tell with sweet Riesling but this seems fine. Very fresh and lively, classic Lauer from a ripe but energetic vintage. Ripe sweet lime, rocks and powered minerals, sweet peach, tangerine, honey, white grapes, a bit of spices. Some notes of cream and lime cream - just wonderful. The palate enters a little soft with the honey and peach but the limes and minerals come out in the middle, really grippy, and the finish is really great and burning with acid and just the right sweetness. This is crisp and the intensity of flavor is really is deep, nearly explosive. Another pour shows really burly 2015 concentration. These 2015 VDP wines show awesome potential. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5+/6, Finish - 5+/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17+/20, (with 17.5-18/20 potential.)

    March 16, 2019 - Right-in-your-face fruit flavours of peach, lychee, lime, stone fruits. Ultra high acidity with rather intense fruit flavours. Not great at the moment, probably good for cellaring?

    August 22, 2018 - Super! A pungent melange of lime, lime peel, tart melon, grapefruit, straw, mineral, limestone, cistern. It is fluid and airy, powerful and weightless, and about as good as Saar Kabinett can be!

    February 18, 2017 - Less sulfur than other recent Lauers. Zippy green fruit, sweet green herbs, light in body, plenty of acid, goes down easy. This is quite similar to the non-auction bottling, with everything just turned up a little. Not sure it's worth the premium in this vintage.

    December 2, 2016 - Potetkjeller og rå kålrabi rett fra flaska. Etterhvert litt urter (kjørvel? mild mynte). Slankere og mye mer syredrevet enn Prinz' Jungfer. Men alt er i balanse her også - syren er ikke kantete. Mer punch i munnen, men kortere ettersmak. Herlig vin.
