2018 "Jesuitengarten" Riesling trocken GG,
Weingut Geheimer Rat Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan
Robert Parker Wine Advocate:
„The 2018 Riesling GG Jesuitengarten "VDP. Grosse Lage" is deep, precise and intense on the well-defined and spicy-aromatic nose. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a very elegant, complex and salty-crystalline Jesuitengarten of great class and style. The wine is tight, refined and elegant and reveals a long and persistent finish. Great harmony yet also tension here.
A modern classic. Tasted in Deidesheim in December 2019.
Gunther Hauck and chief winemaker Uli Mell can be proud of presenting one of the best series of 2018 Riesling grand crus with (sweet) and without (dry) predicates in the Mittelhardt. Not only were the yields excellent but the wines show clarity, finesse and purity as well as ripe and precise fruit that exemplarily represents the particular terroirs and in the typically elegant Bassermann style. Even though the analytics indicate a lower acidity for the 2018s than for the 2017s, the wines are fresh and laser sharp without being too intellectual.“
„Not only are the limey and lemony aromas racy and fragrant, but they’re also rather concentrated on the nose. Medium-bodied and very crunchy with integrated sensations of citrus and spices. Bone-dry. Drink now or hold.“
