Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
96 JS / 93 WS
Another 2016 Spätlese from Dönnhoff that's still a bit shy on the nose, but on the palate it’s like a huge glittering diamond with more facets flashing many colors. An extremely long super-mineral finish that is impeccably clean in spite of the generous grape sweetness in this masterpiece of elegance. Better from 2018 with decades of ageing potential. Made from organic grapes and Fair'n Green certified.
A superripe spätlese, featuring peach cobbler and baked apple notes packed into a seductive framework. Precise and focused midpalate, with hints of lime, grapefruit and slate intensely displayed on a bracing structure. Features a stubbornly persistent finish.
