    April 29, 2022 - After some time pnp this one again,
    great stone fruit smell, some shy saline tones,
    on the palate needs a lot of aeration to open up, crisp mouthfeel, with a clean stone fruit showing, firm, very young and demanding acid here, finesse like flow, for me the most elegant vineyard and bottling from the Dönnhoff GG dry league,
    next day more balanced, but still fresh and with a demanding acid,
    can be enjoyed from now on with a decent decant but will benefit from further 5+ years cellaring,
    **(**-?), around 92, 93(+) potential

    April 9, 2022 - Popped, poured, consumed over next two hours. Dry, tart, well-knit, intensity without weight, succulent finish. Only moderately complex, but delicious. Could probably benefit from more time in cellar. 92+

    October 2, 2021 - Excellent aperitif. Quite energetic on opening. Settled a bit after an hour. I liked the first phase, juicy, ripe but dry, quite thrilling.

    August 29, 2020 - Back to Riesling County; 8/27/2020-8/31/2020 (Estates at the Nahe and Ruwer, different restaurants at Bad Kreuznach, Niederhausen and Trier): We finished this day with a meal in the Hermannshöhle restaurant again,
    really young showing, needs at least 2 hours to show more, juicy peach fruit, finesse, still very tight, great deepness, superb persistence, for the next decade+, **(**-*****), 93, 94 potential, today 92
