2021 Königsbach Idig Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Pfalz, Germany

Deep, very cool, also firm, noble, still slightly reductive bouquet with very bright yellow fruity aromas, some yeast and smoke, chanterelles, hints of bacon, herbal-vegetable nuances and clear, again bright minerality. Taut, cool, again very bright and noble fruit, which becomes more yellow-fruity with air, yeasty and fine planty aromas, present acidity and intense, chalky-salty minerality, has tension and a lot of grip, ripe phenolic, still completely undeveloped, almost compact, yet deep and gripping, tones reminiscent of beeswax, long, cool, fine-juicy, bright finish with plenty of tension. Needs a lot of time.
