2020 Wittmann "Aulerde" GG Riesling
Wittmann's 2020 Aulerde GG proves again that this deep vineyard can have grand cru level in certain vintages, namely the dry and sunny ones. This one opens deep, clear and elegant, with a dusty chalk/clay bouquet intertwined with fine and citric spiciness. Juicy, spicy and piquant on the palate, with fine phenolic grip and a firm and salty, long and elegant finish, this is a terrific, expressive Aulerde and another highlight from this Westhofen terroir after Wittmann's 2019. Tasted in Wiesbaden at the end of August 2021. Drink 2025 - 2045.

Stunning nose of pineapple and Mirabelle that’s still so youthful. Concentrated and energetic with great mineral vitality and salty intensity. From vines planted in 1949 and 1951. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2023. 95 points, Stuart Pigott - jamessuckling.com
