    March 17, 2021 - 13.5% abv. Hmm, maybe I had bad bottle but this didn’t seem to have the acidity or sugar levels I’m looking for in a young Riesling. Very mono profile, flabby. Poured half bottle out on day 2.

    January 28, 2019 - Delightful version of Riesling that packs significant power for the price point. Medium body, leggy, viscous, voluptuous. Nose of beeswax, peaches, lychee, stones. Slight hint of sweetness balanced by zippy acidity. This strikes me as a vintage that will reward longer term cellaring, so these will go to the bottom of the cellar and sleep till ‘25 or so. Great QPR here.

    May 29, 2018 - Très beau riesling mûre, axée sur une grande minéralité. Excellente structure et salinité, on peux le boire maintenant mais je crois que ce vin à un très bon pontentiel de bonification dans le temps. J’ouvre ma prochaine bouteille vers 2023-2025.

    February 4, 2018 - Light amber. Nose floral with bright peach notes. Palate dry yet with honeyed stone fruits prominent, strong minerality, jewel-like fruity clarity. Open now, very nice. 93 pts

    June 4, 2017 - Litt petro på duft, samt pære, aprikos og noe mandler. OK friskhet i munnen, men kunne tjent på noe mer syre. Aromatisk relativt kompleks, men skuffer i munnen - litt tynn. Dårlig value for money (315,-) i rieslingverden, selv om det er en grei vin. Kanskje potensiale ved lagring.
