Light and bright, similar to a pinot, but in my opinion, better. Lots of red fruit, but with deeper character too. — a month ago
Crisp, back note of peppery honey. — a year ago
Zu Weihnachten 2021 die vorletzte Flasche aufgezogen. Leichte Alterungsnoten und nicht mehr ein junger frischer Obstkorb, aber immer noch einer der feinen Weine. — 2 years ago
Wonderful, fruity, semi-dry white that is delicious! — a month ago
On the back label it reads, “Der Tradition verpflichtet. Nur hochwertige Rheingauer Rieslingweine mit kräftiger Saure, unter strenger Selbstkontrolle der CHARTA erzeugt, düfen dieses Zeichen tragen. Diese Weine sind besonders zum Essen und allen geselligen Anlässen empfohlen”.
That roughly translates to, “Committed to tradition. Only high-quality Rheingau Riesling wines with strong acidity, produced under strict self-control of the CHARTA, are allowed to bear this sign. These wines are particularly recommended for meals and all social occasions”.
I’ve been wanting to try these wines ever since I heard stories of Georg Brueur and Bernd Phillipi being total mavericks and spearheading the dry Riesling revolution in Germany, and this sure delivered. While not truly grand in any sense, it proved the ageability of the concept then. Still relatively fresh with a nose made of herbs, pear, grapefruit, anise, sea breeze, smoke, and hints of petrol. On the palate, really ethereal and pure, with citrusy elements, intense salinity, and laser-like acidity. Finishes long and nuanced. What a pleasure to have drank this. — a year ago

April 2023. Mahogany color. Unctuous, sweet, very fruity. Better second day. Becoming more smooth and balanced, hint of oak vanished and acidity mellowed completely. Perfect at 23 years. Very similar to Riesling BA. — 8 months ago
