Other Reviews....
Christmann's 2020 Vogelsang Neustadt Riesling Grosse Lage is the first release of this steep cru that the family bought three years before. The wine opens with a coolish and lime-fresh bouquet of crushed stones and lemons. It is remarkably cool and fresh for the vintage, which comes through on the palate. Here, the wine shows super-ripe and intense fruit, whereas the coolish and saline limestone terroir comes out only on the finish with fresh and lemon-scented acidity and long, mouthwatering salinity. There are fine tannins and bitters on the aftertaste. 12.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in November 2022. Drink 2027 - 2047.

Very bright and uplifting nose with delicate dried-flower aromas. Lots of depth and structure, but also very polished. In spite of the power and mineral backbone, it’s quite sleek at the very long and complete finish. The first vintage of this GG! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold.
