2002 Hermann Dönnhoff Oberhauser Brücke Riesling Spätlese Nahe

SKU #1004840 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This Spatlese is extraordinary, hovering in that zone bordering perfection in which wines touch the soul. The 2002 Riesling Spatlese Oberhauser Brucke exhibits aromas and flavors of cherry-drenched quartz, raspberries, minerals, as well as steel. Medium-bodied, muscular, powerful, and masculine, it is an oily-textured, broad-shouldered wine of spectacular depth and length. This concentrated, harmonious behemoth will be at its best between 2010 and 2030. All Hail the King of Spatlese! Donnhoff’s line-up of Spatlesen is second to none. (PR) Inner quote mark (2/2004)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tangy and vivid in structure, this is like a jolt of peach, tropical fruit, spice and mineral. Taut and racy, it packs a lot of flavor into its sleek frame. Long, fruit-cocktail aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very cool and intense on the nose. Superficially open and broad, but underneath there is a huge interplay of flavours. This is a ballet, and a good one. 18/20 points. Inner quote mark (12/2003)

K&L Notes

According to Terry Theise: "Brücke is Dönnhoff’s monopole site along the river, in which the soil visibly changes in the space of about 100 yards - four times. The past few years it has given Helmut’s weightiest wines. Amazing: from these 2.5 acres come white wines more noble and complex than any on this earth, and the consumer can buy this wine for not much over $35, and that from one of the greatest vintners alive! The 2002 is profound and professorial, judicial, the first of these to feel 'masculine'; as for all of them, a sleek shapely body with endless depth of detail."
