What experts say  
  
 
91/100 "Quite clear and open on the concentrated nose with its spicy and floral, elegant aromas. It is pure, vivacious, very elegant and mineral on the palate, which combines the concentration of 2013 with the piquancy of the granite soils, and leads to a stringent and salty taste. This well-structured wine is richer and more powerful in style than the Sommerberg from Albert Boxler, but not as baroque as a Grand Cru Brand. Provided with a potent finish, it needs some years to get more sublime. Bottled with around 6 grams per liter residual sugar, the 2014 is dry yet not bone dry.” (2013 Vintage)
 
  
  
16.5/20 "Spicy and stony at the same time. Rounded out by the residual sugar and nicely balanced. Intense and zesty on the palate, especially compared with some of these 2013s." (2013 vintage)
  
 

 
 
90/100 "Lively, with ground spice and citrus zest notes, this bright white is light- to medium-bodied and shows flavors of crunchy white peach, slivered almond and lemon curd." (2013 vintage)
