Reviews and Ratings

Beverly Crandon rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

On colour, the Rolly Gassmann Riesling 2009 holds a crisp, yet light, golden wheat hue. On the nose, scents of green apple, pear and definite melon are noted, with a light floral essence. On the palate, this wine sits perfectly in the desired state of being well tempered with acidity, finely managing the wine’s sweetness. You’ll also note tastes of that persistent melon, apricot, and pear. Lastly, this wine produces an enjoyable medium length finish.
This is a formidable white!!
Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Medium gold in colour with lovely aromas of tropical fruit, white citrus, floral and mineral notes. Wow! It really jumps out at you. Off-dry on the palate, meaning just a little bit sweet, and the trop. fruit and lemon really stand out. Very nicely balanced, and good character and complexity.

A great expression of one of Alsace's noble varieties!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
