91 points Vinous: "Exuberant aromas of ripe apricot, pine nuts, wild herbs and sweet lime. Crisp nectarine fruit and succulent texture are juxtaposed here with refreshing clarity. A touch austere but bright and pleasingly spicy on the clean finish. (JP)" (1/2014)
Johannes and his wife Julia are among the rising stars of the Rheinhessen and members of the "message in a bottle" group of young growers out to show the German wine world that the Rheinhessen is capable of producing world class wines. Located in Gau-Odernheim, the German equivalent of the middle of nowhere, the winery focuses on old vineyards with very mineral soils, mostly chalk.
Jancis Robinson: "Bottled early April. Very intense floral nose and good balance on the palate - not too austere. Lots to enjoy here. Very fluid and flavourful." (4/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Wittmann's 2015 Riesling Trocken displays clear, warm and super-ripe. white fruit aromas along with sweet blossom and floral flavors on the nose. Round and quite powerful on the palate, but also pure and mineral, this is a rich and fruit-intense wine. This is a good indicator what to expect from Wittmann's 2015 range. (SR)" (8/2016)
While the most famous of Germany's white wines is indoubtably Riesling, the terroir and climate of the Rheinhessen is also suited to the production of crisp, delicious Pinot Blanc ('Weissburgunder' in German). Husband and wife Julia and Johannes Landgraf are the winemaking team behind Becker-Landgraf, continuing in the tradition of two winemaking families but with an emphasis on natural, minimal intervention winemaking. This 100% Pinot Blanc is all hand-harvested from top vineyards around Petersberg in Gau-Odernheim. It is raised in wood and made in an e... Read More »

93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Nierstein Pettenthal Riesling trocken GG opens like a serious terroir and food wine with a lovely, clear, fresh and smoky bouquet of crushed stones, white and yellow fruits and toasted pine nut aromas. Round and piquant on the palate, this juicy, elegant and well-balanced wine develops a very long and refreshingly mineral and salty finish; it has great finesse and lovely fruit aromas. Everything here is discreet but persistent. This is a delicious wine full off finesse and mineral tension. There are stone-licking mineral flavors in the slate-lik ...Read More »
94-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Morstein GG is chalky and limey, but closer to the Kirchspiel than the Brunnenhäuschen at this early stadium. Subtle flavors of morels and porcini along with lime rind flavors lead to a dense, intense and refreshingly piquant palate. The 2014 is very pure, mineral, firmly structured and finesse-full. The finish is very persistent and displays lots of limes and chalky flavors in the extremely salty finish. Great potential." (12/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Westhofen Morstein seems the most vibrantly citrusy among Wittmann's 2014 GG bottlings. Its lemon-lime acidity i ...Read More »

95 points Wine Spectator: "Explosively fresh and fruity, with unctuous mango, peach tart, dried apricot and candied pear flavors that are lusciously spiced. Long and rich on the finish, offering loads of cream and honey, accented by hints of savory spice. Drink now through 2042. (KM, Insider 11/2016)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gunderloch's 2015 Nackenheim Rothenberg Riesling Auslese is beautifully clear, intense and fresh on the nose, where ripe fruit aromas are intertwined with spicy honey, raisin and a touch of grapefruit aromas. Noble and elegant on the round and piquant palate, this is a rich, dense and ...Read More »
