This is a first time entrant, from a grape exchange that he arranged with a colleague in Zeltingen. This has the ripest fruit profile yet, then all on weightless, pretty delicacy on the palate presence. Stefan quipped, “this is a poet, the (Paulinshofberg) other a warrior….”. This is quite pretty, and makes me wonder what else it has in store.

“Concentrated apricot, mango and ripe citrus aromas are married to a sleek, but highly structured palate. Incredibly precise finish with intense slatey minerality. You already feel all the depth, but this still needs a bit of time for all the aromatic nuances to emerge. Very limited production. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.” 97 Stuart Piggott
