Wine Review Report
Great (97 WP)

Very firm nose, ethereal, resiny and herbaceous notes, stony mineral notes, light yellow fruit and floral aromas, hint of black berries. Ripe, very juicy and concentrated fruit on the palate, more resiny herbaceous and other ethereal notes, persistent, grippy and deep, prominent mineral notes, still totally undeveloped, touch of green olives in the background, slightly piquant, very good long finish.
Best to drink:
Along with Bingen and Nierstein, one of the three areas in the German Rheinhessen growing region; see there
