2003 Dönnhoff Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Auslese Nahe (375ml)

SKU #1092893 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Undoubtedly the finest 2003 Auslese I tasted is Dönnhoff’s majestic 2003 Riesling Auslese Norheimer Dellchen. Its immensely complex aromas reveals a plethora of fresh herbs, minerals, slate, and apples. On the palate, this wine reveals a depth of stupendous proportions. Powerful, yet refined, it has the ethereal qualities that mark this brilliant winemaker’s best cuvées. Combining the vintage’s sensual nature with exquisite precision and refinement, this gem displays crystalline minerals enrobed in red berries whose effects linger throughout its long, sublime finish. Wow! Projected maturity: 2007-2030. Bravo to Helmut Dönnhoff for this magical line-up! (PR) Inner quote mark (12/2004)

Outer quote mark This expressive auslese provides a glimpse in to the future. Firm and ripe, with red berry, vanilla, citrus and mineral flavors, it merely hints at its charms. Balanced and long, give it a few years to open. Best from 2007 through 2020. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2005)

Outer quote mark Very, very cool and refreshing. Dill. Herby. Racy, sleek and fine. Very, very lively. Very delicate. So pure it's almost antiseptic. Tingles on the finish. Even a hint of tropical fruit. 19/20 Inner quote mark (6/2004)


Outer quote mark Fiery aromatic notes of distilled berries and smoked meat. An intensely concentrated, compact mass of citrus and berries on the palate; embryonic at present but feeds a dynamic dance of striking finishing flavors. This should evolve for years as a great monument to its site. *Two Stars* (DS) Inner quote mark (1/2005)
