92/100 – Bob Campbell MW
“Flavoursome chardonnay with a strong citrus fruit emphasis together with an appealing chalk/mineral character. A bright, fresh wine that gives a nod in the direction of Burgundy. Quite metallic acidity adds energy and character.” – Bob Campbell
Tasting Note: Grown in Ruppertsberger Reiterpfad on sandy red sandstone with some limestone and loess clay. 60% fermented in oak barrels. Stylistically a harmonious balance between new world-style expressivity and Burgundian finesse. Stone ft and exotic spicy, smoky notes dominate on the nose, while the palate is voluptuous, silky and smooth all the way through the weighty finish. It’s big and bold, but also complex and nuanced, with fine-grained acidity and a precise, clean aftertaste that hints at the limestone influence.
Region: Pfalz, Germany
