Description

“Seed-inflected lime, grapefruit, apple and pear mingle both on the nose and on a silken palate with subtly stony and bracingly saline, crystalline mineral impingements. This displays a striking sense of density allied to alcoholic levity and transparency, finishing with vibrant, shimmering interaction of fruit and mineral elements. Conceivably it’s just more developed (in an entirely positive way) than are this collection’s other Grosse Gewächse (whereas Falkenlay was notably recalcitrant in 2015), but my suspicion is that this will retain an edge over its siblings in clarity and animation.” 93 David Schildknecht

“The 2016er Pündericher Marienburg Falkenlay Trocken GG delivers a ripe nose of grapefruit, quince, infused pear and herbs. The wine develops a satisfyingly creamy feel on the palate, where fresh grapefruit mingles with fine spices and juicy pear. The finish is intense and almost powerful but retains stunning balance. This is a great dry Riesling in the making. 2021-2036” 93 Mosel Fine Wines
