2018 Donnhoff Felsenberg "Felsenturmchen" Riesling Grosses Gewachs (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1446892 94 points John Gilman

 The 2018 Felsenberg GG is also absolutely outstanding this year. The bouquet is impressively expressive at this early stage, soaring from the glass in a blaze of pear, tart orange, a beautiful base of slate minerality, wild yeasts, a touch of fleur de sel and a potpourri of floral scents in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and seamless, with outstanding mid-palate depth, powerful mineral drive and great cut and grip on the long, perfectly balanced and youthful finish. This will be show stopping juice in the fullness of time. (Drink between 2028-2070)  (4/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Bottled in July, just two days before I tasted the 2018 Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg Riesling trocken –GG– for the first time, the nose was ripe and generous but fine and flinty-mineral. Lush and salty-piquant, this is a full-bodied, rich and powerful yet vital Riesling with lots of body but also tension, purity and grip. Tasted again in August 2019.(SR)  (10/2019)

K&L Notes

90pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 28 19. The 2018er Felsenberg Riesling GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, is also described internally at the Estate as Felsentürmchen (there is a tower depicted on the label). It proves quite herbal and powerful as notes of dried yellow peach, tar, smoke, earthy spices and camphor emerge from the glass. This rich and powerful side carries over onto the intense, slightly earthy and tart palate. A touch of alcoholic heat underlines the mighty structure of the wine in the finish. This big expression of dry Riesling is still in a pretty rough phase. It will need some extensive cellaring to reveal the goods and may then well prove better than expected, especially if it harnesses its powerful side. 2022-2028." (10/2019)
