About

97+

"The 2015 (Niederhäuser) Hermannshöhle Riesling GG is cool and smoky on the nose--very clear and aristocratic, like always--with lemon and fine stony flavors, but also hints of pineapple, herbs and flint stones. What purity, depth and finesse there is here! On the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich, intense and elegant Riesling that's bottled only to be enjoyed in the next decade. It is deep, complex and mystical, and the texture is ripe and round--whereas the minerals are still sorting themselves out. This wine is still in the cellar, preparing itself to shine one day. All I can do today is testify to its complexity and depth, as well as its vitality and lemon freshness from the slate terroir."

"The 2015 Grosses Gewächs from the Hermannshöhle is utterly complete and a great wine in the making. Whereas the Dellchen and Felsenberg are cut from the more powerful side of the vintage, the Hermannshöhle really exudes the elegance and seamless beauty that the top 2015ers have in spades. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a still quite youthful blend of grapefruit, tart orange, a gorgeous base of slate, petrol, wild yeasts and a topnote of lemongrass. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and superbly well-balanced, with great depth in the mid-palate, racy acids and great grip and focus on the very long and very, very promising finish. This will be a great bottle of Hermannshöhle GG and is my favorite Grand Cru dry Riesling in the cellar this year. 2022-2065"
