Press :

93 - Wine spectator Insider - October 2018 «Beutifully aromatic, featuring lots of mineral and honey on the nose and palate, along with flavors of poached quince, sliced almond, star fruit and fleur de sel. Statuesque and framed by firm acidity, this is light-to medium-bodied, with a intense, mineral-driven finish. Drink now through 2030. A.N»

92 - James Suckling Mai 2018 « Maybe this isn’t the most powerful dry riesling on the planet, but it has seductive apricot and floral aromas, as well as a great balance of juicy fruit and crisp, mineral acidity...»
