Wine Review Report:

wein.plus rating: excellent (93 WP) What our ratings mean
Last reviewed: 30 June, 2018
Editor note: Firm, clear nose, ripe, partly candied yellow fruit, floral and herbaceous traces, some miont, prominent mineral notes. Ripe, juicy, concentrated frjuit on the palate, yeasty and nutty aromas, some sugar candy, light mineral njotes, very elegant, lively acidity, full-body, good substance and persistence, quite concentrated, slightly sweet, some grip and fepth, very good, long, juicy, firm, fairly complex sweetish finish. Perhaps no longer quite as vibrant as ints youth, but remains one of the few really stron winjes of the 2010 vintage.

Editor note: Translate to English Sehr fester, komplexer hefiger, erdig-mineralischer, kräuteriger und auch ein wenig vegetabiler Duft mit hochfeinen Zitrus- und Steinobstaromen. Betörende, strahlende, saftige Frucht im Mund, hefige und leicht tabakige Töne sowie kandierte Kräuter, feine, sehr reife Säure, viel Schmelz am Gaumen, kräftig und Nachhaltig, vielschichtig und tief, noch gänzlich unentwickelt, kompakt, aber schon jetzt ungemein betörend, sehr saftiger, dabei komplexer und fast packender Nachhall.

Germany, or rather the area that is now part of it, has a wine culture that is over two thousand years old. But even before that, imported wine was drunk, as evidenced by a Greek clay wine bottle from around 400 BC found in a Celtic grave. The oldest vineyards were on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their long valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic wine-growing areas today. Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...
