Honeyed notes on green apple, sour apple, cucumber. Palate is bright and crunchy, lively with tart acidity, almost spritzy, green apple and waxy honeycomb vibes. It’s punchy in a way, refreshing in another, direct and powerful, excellent drinking here. 95 points – Mike Bennie, The Wine Front April 2019
The Kirchspiel grand cru site opens toward the Rhine like an amphitheatre. Its southern and southeastern exposure protects the vines from cold westerly winds. It also accounts for the excellent microclimate of the vineyard. The soil structure is similar to that of the Morstein site, marked by clayish marl interspersed with limestone. Limestone is the predominant component of the subsoil, too.
