James Suckling 96
This ravishingly beautiful, ripe GG has tons of ripe pear, quince and melon. Generous and mouth-filling, but very silky and polished, this builds to a major-key crescendo finish. Delicate herbal freshness holds it back from tipping over the top. Drink or hold.
Mosel Fine Wines 93+
The 2020er Feils N°13 GG, as it is referred to on the central part of the label, comes from this south-south-east facing Lieu-dit overseeing the Saar (legally part of the Ayler Kupp vineyard). It offers a beautifully refreshing and smoky nose of minty herbs, cassis leaf, pear, stone fruits, black pepper, grapefruit, raspberry, bergamot, and a hint of beeswax. The wine proves full of presence and intensity on the palate. Some fruity flavors of pear and peach add a sense of smoothness to the experience. The finish has more lightness, yet the whole thing remains on the riper side. It may however develop finesse and warrant an even higher score with time. 2026-2035
