Professional reviews:

Moselfinewines.com (Jean Fisch & David Rayer): “The 2018er Piesporter, as it is referred to on the consumer label, comes from grapes harvested in the Goldtröpfchen and was for half mashfermented down to legally dry levels of residual sugar (6 g/l). It proves superbly open for business and delivers a gorgeous nose of almond cream, yellow peach, candied citrus, spices and minty herbs. Juicy fruits are nicely wrapped into smoky herbs and juicy acidity on the gorgeously focused and structured on the palate. The wine is still slightly tart in the delicately round finish at this early stage, but this tartness will melt into the flavors of this superb Riesling in a few years. What a huge success for a “mere” Village wine! 2023-2038” 93/100 pts

John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “The Piesporter is the only “village wine” in the cellars this year from Julian, and it had not yet been bottled at the time of my visit, so the final numbers on the wine were not yet available. The wine was half fermented in stainless steel and half in old fuder, coming in around twelve percent alcohol and with residual sugars somewhere between three and six grams; the acids hover around an excellent 8.5 grams per liter. The wine is absolutely stellar on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet jumping from the glass in a blaze of black currant, tart orange, gentle smokiness, lemongrass and a beautifully complex base of salty minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite racy in personality, with a fine core, stunning backend
mineral drive and a very long, complex and perfectly balanced finish. This is stunning wine in the making! As I mentioned above, this was made exclusively using the small basket press, as is the case for all of the following wines as well. 2021-2060.” 93/100 pts
