Outer quote mark The 2019 Riesling Trocken is bright, very clear, deep and intense on the precise, reductive and slightly flinty nose. On the palate, this is a juicy, well-concentrated and silky-textured yet firmly structured dry Riesling with lingering salinity and lovely mineral purity. Very long, perfectly round and highly stimulating. 12% alcohol. This is Wittmann's estate wine, and 60,000 bottles were produced, so 30,000 less than in 2018. Tasted in March 2020. Philipp Wittmann himself is torn as to which of his GGs he likes best in 2019. In my tasting, in May the choice was easy. The Brunnenhäuschen GG shows all the merits of the vintage at its best: highly elegant, refined and complex yet weightless, with immense finesse and energy. However, Morstein and La Borne are hardly behind, they just weren't as developed. Without a doubt, Wittmann's 2019s, especially these three Riesling GGs, are great wines, even greater than the 2018s, possibly even the finest of the last 20 years, even though he himself sees 2001 and 2002 at the same high level. And that, according to Philipp, borders on "a miracle" because the 2019 vintage was "quite turbulent." Only at the time of harvesting the "perfectly ripe and healthy grapes" did it become clear that 2019 could bear great wines. "The berries were not overripe at all and were really crunchy when we picked them," says Philipp. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2020)
