August 12, 2021 - This seems very sweet and lacks acidity to balance so it works better as a dessert wine at this point
February 9, 2018 - Petrol and a hint of botrytis on nose
Still quite a lot of acidity to contain what would otherwise be a coarse sweetness. A few more layers than Auslesen of the 80's and 90's
Screwcap is preserving freshness 89-91
October 15, 2011 - Unscrewed and poured. Overwhelming sulfur and reduction. Passed thru vinturi into decanter which helped a little. Underneath this it was overtly sweet (auslese+) rich fruit without a lot of acid evident. had a bitter sulfuric note on finish. As the evening wore on it improved. I am planning to wait >10 yrs to try the next one and hope for the best. I have significant doubts about this one. Reserving score for now, but if unchanged with time will call it flawed.
March 21, 2011 - My notes are the same as last bottle.
February 12, 2011 - Creamy and rich, yet lacking the complexity I was hoping for... Not bad, just thought it would be better.
June 6, 2007 - Germany 2006 Report - Rudi Weist/David Bowler; 6/4/2007-6/8/2007 (Tribecca Grill): WOW, sweet fruit on the nose, ripe and rich with wonderfull Rheingau power, amazing long finish. (135 Oe.)
