“The grand cru Trocken bottling from the Goldtröpfchen hails from a parcel of ungrafted vines that were planted in 1905. This was one of the wines that was a bit upset from its recent filtering, so I have scored it within a range, but it is clearly destined to be an outstanding wine. The bouquet is deep and pure, offering up notes of grapefruit, orange peel, a beautiful base of slate minerality, wild yeasts, gentle smokiness and a lovely topnote of botanicals. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and absolutely rock solid at the core, with fine nascent complexity, ripe acids and excellent focus and grip on the very long and classy finish. This will need some bottle age to start to truly blossom.”

"Made from century-old un-grafted vines, the 2015er Goldtröpfchen offers a very pure, complex and fresh nose with plenty of spicy flavors, some floral nuances, apricot tree flower and licorice. This wine exhibits a highly mineral and punchy structure full of spices on the palate and develops gorgeous salty elements in the zesty finish. This is a very racy dry Riesling, and one which definitely needs a bit of aging to tame its intensity and gain in finesse. But it will then prove a great piece of dry-tasting Riesling!"
