94P  2021 Nussbrunnen Hattenheim Riesling GG dry

"This Rheingau GG may not be dramatic, but it is really fascinating! Smoky and silky with good concentration and a tense interplay of restrained fruit, fine tannins and elegant acidity. Very long, mineral and citrus zest finish, From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold. Screw cap." - Stuart Pigott, Jamessuckling.com

93P   2021 Berg Rottland Rüdesheim Riesling GG dry

"Here is a ripe and well-balanced Rheingau riesling GG for the challenging 2022 vintage with attractive white peach and pie crust aromas. I really like the smoky complexity on the well-focused palate where the tannins add some power to the mid-palate and finish without at any point dominating. Emphatically dry and stony finish. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drinkable now, but best from 2024. Screw cap." - Stuart Pigott, Jamessuckling.com

93P   2021 Wisselbrunnen Hattenheim Riesling GG dry

"Still tightly wound, this compact dry riesling has aromas of grilled baguette and Amalfi lemon. Still very youthful, this is going to need a couple of years in the bottle to open up fully. Intensely flinty finish. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Best after 2024. Screw cap." - Stuart Pigott, Jamessuckling.com
