98 points James Suckling
"A giant dry riesling that is so cool, focused and precise, it comes across as only medium-bodied in spite of the enormous concentration of citrus fruit, spice and wet stone minerality. Very pristine finish with a wonderful silkiness that doesn’t want to let you go. This took a whole year to ferment, and that clearly worked extremely well. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold."

96 points Vinous
"The 2021 Riesling Cuvée Ste. Catherine is from 60-70-year old vines on the midslope of the Schlossberg Grand Cru. This took a whole year to ferment and stopped at around 5g/L of residual sweetness. It's richer than usual for the domaine, but with the acidity of 2021, this actually sits well. The most subtle hint of orange blossom is all the nose wants to reveal. More temperature reveals an overtone of pineapple juice. A tiny flicker of smoky reduction appears, too. The palate is bold, clean-cut, serene and scented. This is the crystalline nature of granite making itself known. The pithy texture makes the mouth water even more. The aroma and the texture of freshly zested Amalfi lemon are on the long finish. This has body but no fat - a gorgeous synthesis of freshness and citrus, long and elegant. Real drive and much energy. (Bone-dry)."

Jancis Robinson
"Such a dense perfume! Flattering and rich. Long and lingering. Chalky finish. Crystalline and pungent. 18/20 points."

Vinous Reverie Notes
60-70 year-old vines located on mid-slope of the Grand Cru Schlossberg. On a base of granite rocks, the soils are brown, slightly acidic, pebbly, of very good mineral fertility, of shallow depth at the top of the slope and deeper at the bottom. The Schlossberg’s steep, south-facing slopes ensure exposure to optimal sunshine. The soils are very well drained and warm up very rapidly. The Schlossberg is particularly favorable for Riesling (which is a late-maturing grape and needs as much sunshine as it can get), producing a very pure expression of the grape, with remarkable finesse and elegance. Tasting Notes: Elegant and balanced, this wine reveals delicate floral aromas with a mouth-watering minerality. This full-bodied Riesling holds a lean acidity which is well-suited to food pairing. Combines richness and elegance and offers a very long and persistent finish.
