"This is riesling in Technicolor. Catherina Grans and her father, Gerhard, selected this from plots planted in the blue-gray slate around Trittenheim, on the right bank of the Mosel. While it’s not their most ambitious wine, it might be their most profound, a wine that presents its generous, multilayered flavor with a selfless ease. It smells like heaven, if heaven were filled with flowers and ripe fruit arranged on a cool stone table, keeping everything pristine; it tastes like a walk around the table, with short stops to bite into a juicy apple or soft peach, inhale the fragrance of some lilacs or relax against the cool stone."
"Masses of pure fruit and quite a spine of structure. Racy. Super-clean. Well done! 17/20 points."
