James Suckling: 97 Points

A breathtaking wine that has all the mineral depth and concentration you associate with a Grand Cru but also a wide spectrum of very fine citrus and berry aromas. Then it splash lands in an explosion of fresh-herb aromas. Drink or hold.

The 2020 Frhlingspltzchen GG is very pure and fresh on the precise and stony pretty reductive and herbal nose that needs lots of air to open up. Crystalline and pure on the palate this is a bone-dry refined enormously salty and piquant Riesling from partly red slate loam and quartzite plots. The finish is pure fresh and precise very long and expressive. Tasted from a bottle that was opened three days earlier it is much more charming and open on the nose showing an intense and complex bouquet of crushed stones lemons and white fruits. The palate is round and elegant much lusher and long but it still has long-lasting salinity on the finish. A gorgeous Frhlingspltzchen that today comes from stonier plots than in the beginning of the GG saga. 12.5% alcohol. Tasted at the domain in July 2021.
