Description

I have been a big fan of the Kitterlé and its more implosive, coiled sense of limestone minerality. The Dirlers know how much I loved this wine in 2014, and they feel that this is the best iteration since then…..This seems to be a particular stoundout this year, your 6pk buy…. “Implosively calcaire (limestone), a tightly coiled spring of long and delicate purity. Just gorgeous.” The Kitterlé is a bottling that I prize in such vertical, bracing years, as it is my kind of rock head delight. Ludivine pointed out exactly these qualities in her tasting note: vertical, mineral, stony, smoky. She also awarded it with her highest mark of three stars ***. For fans of stony Grand cru class in a glass Riesling, this is your stop…..Piggott flipped for this one, and I could easily taste why, giving it a little * in my notes. Every person who has tasted it has given it crazy good reviews…….sigh…..people ignore…..

” The complex and vibrant nose of wild herbs and flowers pulls you into this extremely compact, precise dry riesling that expertly underplays its power and concentration. Still very young, and this will show even better after a couple more years in the bottle, but there’s no doubt about how super-straight and structured this already is. Enormously long and complete finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.” 98 Stuart Piggott

“The 2020 Kitterlé Grand cru is from sandstone soil with volcanic sediments of greywacke. The nose has very subtle smoke. The palate is immediately concentrated, bold, vivid with dried orange peel and mouth watering freshness, despite the year. This is linear, strait-laced, muscular, and toned. The finish is gorgeously citrus-scented. (Bone dry)” 94 Anne Krebiehl MW of Vinous
