This wine set a record at #auction when 3 of these double #magnums were offered so it was an enormous pleasure and great honor to have been able to experience this massively impressive 10-year old #GG while sitting next to it creators!
#2006 was a notoriously challenging vintage where rampant #botrytis and heavy selection were the order of the day; nevertheless in the hands of the Kellers yet another epic wine was born--THANK YOU!!! #Keller #AbtsE #Westhofen #Riesling #Rheinhessen — 7 years ago
This off-beat Cuvee Marguerite is made from some extinct clone related to Chardonnay, if I understood Andrew Green correctly, which is made in very small quantities from super-old, ungrafted vines and only bottled in #magnums since about 2005--it's odd but it's damn good odd! — 9 years ago
What an amazing bottle and the perfect match for the BBQ'ed ham that was our meal's centerpiece.
As the Summer of #Riesling winds down, it's #magnums of stunning juice like this that keep us coming back for more...regardless of the season!

Near perfect. The #blancdeblancs from Mumm Napa age so beautifully, especially out of #magnums! Some fresh citrus notes, but smells and flavors of a bakery in full swing dominate, toasty almond and slightly burnt baguette. I have been waiting to #saber this wine for a while, my sons birthday was the perfect occasion. — 8 years ago
Ah, yes, the wonderful world of #magnums...what a fabulous wine even in a 750ml, but magnums seem to bring out a very special dimension of complexity in older wines--this #Abtsberg #Auslese was phenomenal with seafood as well as all by itself--a truly epic bottle! #1997 #Rieling #Mosel #MaximGrünhäuser — 9 years ago
#Magnums of #German #Riesling are a unique experience and always a treat by virtue of their relative scarcity as compared with other fine #wine regions of the world...but when it's a mag of any '97 von Schubert fasten your seat belt--you're in for quite a wild & wonderful ride! #Abtsberg — 9 years ago
