Donnhoff Felsenberg Riesling GG Felsenturmchen 2015 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
95+ Points Wine Advocate: The 2015 (Schlossböckelheimer) Felsenberg Riesling GG 'Felsentürmchen' is from the steep, south-facing cru with volcanic soils. It opens very pure and stony, with deep, flinty flavors and a lemon perfume sprayed over crushed stones. On the palate, this is a generous, intense and finesse-full Riesling with great intensity and lingering salinity. The wine seems round, but it has less than four grams of residual sugar. In fact, I have rarely tasted a Felsentürmchen that is so generous and Burgundian as this. In terms of texture, complexity and its compact nature, it is a bit like a Pinot Noir from Volnay. A great dry Riesling for sure, and its soul is clearly stony, flinty and more challenging than the smooth Dellchen, for example. The Felsenberg needs it’s time to show all its talents.
