    May 23, 2021 - Ein sehr eleganter Wein, der mit zunehmender Zeit im Glas ein immer größeres Spektrum an Fruchtnuancen offenbart und an Harmonie gewinnt.

    April 20, 2021 - The vineyard of Kiedrich Gräfenberg—or ‘hill of the counts’—has been used to designate Robert Weil’s finest wines since the site was officially classified as “Weinlage 1 Klasse” in 1867. Home to Weil’s oldest vines (up to 80 years of age, with the majority on their own rootstock) it makes perfect sense that Wilhelm Weil decided that it was only from this site that his Grosse Gewächs would derive (despite the fact that he could actually release three GG’s from all of his single vineyards).

    Weil's aim has been to replicate the style and quality of the full-bodied dry wines that were produced in the Rheingau a century ago, when the region’s finest Rieslings were the most expensive wines in the world. Despite the high quality of the Turmberg and Klosterberg, this is clearly on another level. It’s not necessarily more intense but it’s certainly finer and more complete—a wine of obvious Grand Cru class. Without doubt this is one of the very finest wines of the Rheingau full stop, and the 2019 is nothing short of a blinder.

    This was raised for 10 months on lees in large, neutral oak Doppelstückfass (large Stockinger casks), but you would never know—the wine is so pure and precise—so this gives you an idea of the power of the base material. In spite of the wine’s intensity, it displays stunning clarity and eye-of-the-needle precision. Like I said, it has that classic ‘Grand Cru’ thing going on—effortless power, serious depth yet a lightness of being that makes it so damn easy and endlessly fascinating to drink. You can expect a linear, tightly wound yet already delicious Riesling with white peach and nectarine fruit, vibrant, perfectly integrated acidity and very fine, powdery structure. The long finish offers loads of exotic florals (jasmine, acacia) that are also on the nose. When you think of what we are paying now for top notch Grand Cru white Burgundies, this remains an absolute bargain, matching the best of them for class and quality.

    “Deep, dense and subtle, this is an imposing wine, yet remains so vital and animating. Shimmering with a thousand facets, but also with a forthright, nectarine note that makes it instantly appealing. Brilliant finish that reminds us what it's like to be up in high mountains – the light, the air.” 97 points, Stuart Pigott, JamesSuckling.com

    “The 2019 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Trocken GG is intense, deep, fresh, very complex and flinty on the stony and lemon-scented nose. Round and charming on the palate, this is a highly finessed and delicate Gräfenberg that is not built on power and structure but finesse and elegance. The 2019 is rather weightless and persistently salty, and it already drinks well as a barrel sample (April 2020). I'm already curious to taste this wine again after the bottling in later August.” 94-96 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

    “A concentrated fragrance combines the fruit of peach, apricot and mirabelle with subtle herbal and fine mineral notions. On the palate a compact substance of fruit is kept cool by refreshing acidity and a mineral expression akin to rock dust. Subtle sprinklings of herbs and spices add further complexity.” 19 points, Michael Schmidt, JancisRobinson.com
