The inaugural vintage of the Goldtropfchen for Thomas, this one kind of blew me away for its sense of floaty mineral attack (as contrasted with the driving, linear sense of the Juffer, for example) and classy complexity. Wine lovers should be psyched that Thomas has added this to his stable, as this oh-so-elegant expression of the Goldtropfchen is a very good sign that he will continue to bring out the best in this Grand cru caliber site that can have a tendency for too much opulence. Thomas says that for whatever reason, all of the Piesporter wines are .5-1.0 g/L acidity higher than their stablemates. Another little star * awarded here.
