From his original core parcel from the upper terraces around the cave and just below it, this has a similar personality to the Am Fels, but with the intensity and amplitude dialed up a notch. “Incredibly, incredibly intense sense of minerality, will blow your mind. Slate rock dust, pulverized.” He makes just 1000L of this, and I’ve purchased a lot of it, on the spot. This is an amazing amazing amazing wine, something that I would put in some kind of time capsule/museum to show/remind the world just how dynamic and amazing wine can be……get what you can justify here, and thank me later. A few! big ol’ *** awarded here. Points schmoints, this always gets a lot of points. Like 100. Watch it do that again…..
“”Stunning nose of melon, totally ripe peach and fresh basil with a net-like layer of slate aromas lying over it. This giant wine gives you a very clear idea of how small each of us really is, not only through its staggering concentration, but even more through the exceptional finesse. Breathtakingly long finish. Very limited production. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.” 98 Stuart Piggott
