Below are the notes that Michael took on 100 other Rieslings there. Still to come are his notes on Silvaners and various Burgundian grapes. See our complete guide to all our coverage of this promising vintage.
Delicate citrus notes and a gentle apricot scent bear some promise, but the palate appears quite phenolic in its expression. A little sweet grapefruit adds some attraction to an otherwise fairly straightforward wine. (MS)
