About

97

"From slate and porphyry soils in the terraced Norheim cru, the 2015 (Norheimer) Dellchen Riesling GG opens with a perfectly ripe, superbly defined and highly refined Riesling bouquet with stony, lemony, ripe apple and mocha flavors from perfectly ripe pips. This grand cru is truly complex and elegant on the nose, with fine floral and herbal flavors. On the palate, this is a pure, highly elegant, intense and silky textured Riesling with great finesse and expression. There is really great balance and length here, and it is not exhausting at all. The finish is a parade of minerals, salts, and the finesse of the best Dellchen I have ever tasted, and it does not end too soon to celebrate itself. This is a beautifully structured and smooth Riesling--a legend of clarity, finesse and elegance."

"The 2015 Dellchen GG is a superb wine in the making, but it is still quite young and will need some time in the cellar to start to unwind. The bouquet offers up a nascently complex constellation of grapefruit, tart orange, petrol, wild yeasts, lemongrass, lovely minerality, dried flowers and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and bottomless at the core, with racy acids, excellent focus and grip, impeccable balance and a serious load of backend energy on the very long finish. 2023-2060"
