Wow. Martin’s signature wine in my opinion. Huge, complex and serene nose. So elegant and expansive. Airy, layered and ethereal. Stunning. 9.8 nose. Just has that extra. Confectionery. Grapefruit. Apricot. Wow. Smells like Riesling grown in chevalier montrachet. One of the most beautiful noses on a young Müllen ever. Genius. It’s so lifted, layered, complex and ethereal. Unreal minerality. Wow that palate is about as pure, elegant and lithely structured as one can imagine. Such structure on the mid and the finish. Amazing concentration and density. Round and full of citrus pith, grapefruit, apricot and peach skin and minor peach flesh. Finish keeps going and going. Astonishing length. Wow. This will be better in 10 years.
On day 2 this is so refined and so brilliant. One of the best TH Sp Trockens ever. The complexity and completeness is just unreal. 9.7 to 9.8 overnight and one of the wines of the vintage. — 20 days ago
Paired with grilled Faroe Island salmon, saffron risotto, and grilled artichokes. Was a perfect wine that started mellow but finished strong with the meal — 7 months ago
Citrus, light, hint of tang on finish. More full bodies than a French style wine. — 3 years ago

Stunning nose. Huge apricot and peach. Love the fruit driven aspect of the aromas here. But beyond that is the most unreal and clean minerals. Pear juice as well. So inviting. Some honey and cantelope as well. A very well rounded nose. Palate is gorgeous. So elegant, round and ripe. Amazingly clean. Love these 12.5% trockens! Juicy as juicy can be and nice, serene and caressing acidity. Great depth and concentration but oh so nimble, sappy and pure. Lovely finish that has all the apricot and sweet peaches one desires. Stunning wine. So balanced and perfect. Amazing complexity and so accessible. As Paradies always is. Mineral drive of a finish with lovely piquant citrus and amazing, engaging fruit. So good.
As this airs the minerality and structure come out more. As does the finesse. What a finish. The density yet how nimble. So pure. — a month ago
Very serene zen nose. Mineral. Some mid-season cherry fruit. After 10 minutes the fruit aromatically erupts like a volcano. Strawberry and watermelon. Wow. Really great. Classic Beaune Prévoles tweed jacket as well. Just wafting aromas. Palate has ungodly 2018 fruit. Stunning purity and mouthfeel. Balance is magical. Refined and superbly elegant. Velvety tannins and very chewy. Long finish with a hint of rusticity. Pure. Lovely. — 2 years ago
Huge and expansive nose with peach flesh, lime zest and lime pith, gorgeous clear minerals and ocean breeze. Saline as well. Melon and cantaloupe as well. Gorgeous clarity of aroma as well. Palate is unreal. So compact and clean. Superb presence, purity and balance. Really accessible for a young Kastanienbusch. Juicy and fresh with such a wonderful acid and mineral balance. Amazingly pure with gorgeous citrus and peach fruit. Serene and complete with a hidden structure that suggests medium term aging. Finishes mineral and very juicy. Lingers. — 20 days ago
Killer killer nose. White cherry Nahe love. Apricot, peach, spice, lanolin, vanilla extract. So pretty. So ebullient. Very open aromas. Herbs. Very complex. Very serene. Wonderful peach skin. Palate is massive, complex, tangy, refined and young with massive fruit skin and fruit pith flavors. Amazing purity and balance. Ripe but perfect freshness and minerality offset it. As it airs the minerality becomes more aromatically pungent. Really delicate but now also super mineral and saline. That sweet type of saline. Really long and delineated. Lovely structured finish. Really really long. Terrific. Really top level finesse with air and a terrific crystalline saline structure. Salty and long. Nose gets more pluot. As it airs slightly confectionary. — a year ago
