Jancis Robinson - 17.5
Butterscotch, aniseed, vanilla are very seductive aromas, but not of Riesling as we know it. It’s all done in the best possible taste, and the rich, creamy, full-bodied expression on the palate would not be out of place in a fine white burgundy of the Puligny-Montrachet school. French winemaker Matthieu Kauffmann may have come from champagne house Bollinger, but he would also have learned a thing or two about oak in his time at Baden producer Salwey. Wood spice, hazelnuts and a gentle earthy note add complexity to an untraditional interpretation of Riesling Grosses Gewächs.

Offers aromas of hops and jasmine, while the palate exhibits flavors of peach and apricot, followed by sea salt notes that persist through the lingering aftertaste. Elegant, bright and firmly structured, showing good balance throughout. Drink now through 2026.
