Bright golden yellow. Very fine, slowly rising pearls. Changes with increasing aeration like a chameleon in front of different colour backgrounds. Initially, there is a clear autolysis touch with aromas of toast and brioche in the foreground, which is only subtly underpinned by yellow fruity accents. Later, it is more of a wood spice that emerges on the nose and, in combination with more pronounced fruit and menthol, is reminiscent of a New World Chardonnay. At first, the palate is more horizontal than vertical, but after about two to three hours, the wine takes on more depth. Overall, with a strong presence on the palate, creaminess and good mousseux. Strawberry in the finish. Very long.

Salmon pink. Extremely fine, slowly rising perlage. Red berry, intense Pinot nose with the scent of cranberry. Elegant, in an idiosyncratic style, delicately foaming and beyond that even with a discreet creaminess on the palate. Structure mediating tannin component. Ethereal notes in the very long finish.

Salmon pink. Very fine perlage. Complex aroma with subtle hints of jelly cherry, pickled strawberry and smoked bacon, but primarily characterised by roasted coffee beans. Well foaming on the tongue, again with the roasted aroma already perceptible in the nose. Enormous length and persistence. A sparkling wine that stands out from the crowd and impresses with individuality and class.

Light, slightly white-golden lemon yellow. Very fine perlage. Delicate yeasty fragrance. Highly complex bouquet with aromas of wild strawberry, citrus, elderberry, lilac blossom, white chocolate, vanilla and nougat. Finely foaming on the palate, suggesting a longer yeast ageing than actually present. Melon fruity fullness, elegant and in style definitely reminiscent of a high-class champagne. Shows a good tension. Excellent length.

“Versektet in Flörsheim-Dalsheim” (Made to sparkling wine in Flörsheim-Dalsheim) is the meaningful note on the label. White golden straw yellow. Fine, quickly rising bubbles. Straightforward aroma of yellow lemon with a hint of Moroccan mint. Dry in the mouth, quite puristic in appearance. Very good length. Vegetal notes in the finish. Immediately recognisable as a Rheingau Riesling in our blind tasting.

Golden yellow. Fine perlage. In the nose, iridescent. At times the fruit of a ripe pear appears, then again liquorice takes up almost the entire perceptible space. Also hints of walnut. On the palate, a typical vintage representative with rather little fruit, but creamy substance. Sustained and with very good length.

Straw to golden yellow. Extremely fine perlage. It seems as if the bubbles rose individually and at a precisely defined distance from the mousse point. On the nose, clear smoky notes and vegetal aromas of white cabbage and horseradish. The overall composition is indeed strikingly reminiscent of Franconian smoked sausages with horseradish. In the mouth, the 1992 Réserve definitely shows vintage typicity. Undoubtedly not an outstanding basic wine, but in an amazingly good and stable condition due to the decades of yeast storage. Very good length. Polarising, even in the four-eye review without a real consensus among the tasters. Against this background, we therefore see our rating as a concession decision.

Disgorged in December 2020. Amber yellow. Delicate, almost fragile perlage with very small bubbles that slowly rise. Aromas marked by the tertiary maturity of the base wine. Little fruitiness, very puristic, some green herbs and celery, salty notes that intensify when combined with food. Slight tinge of geranium. Good length. Although the perlage decreases with time, the sparkling wine takes an amazing development and presents itself much stronger on the second day. For lovers of old wines and Japanese sushi cuisine who like to experiment.

Disgorged in December 2020. Bright amber yellow. Fine perlage. Under the influence of air, an iridescent scent of dried fruits, especially pear and various stone fruits, plum liqueur, walnut and keta caviar. On the tongue with good freshness and at the same time age-appropriate development and vintage-typical expression of the wine. Fine foaming. Salty. Excellent length. Undoubtedly a special taste experience.

Pinot noir-Chardonnay cuvée from the Auggen single vineyards Schäf and Letten, disgorged in December 2020. Salmon pink. Medium-fine perlage. In the nose with a wide aroma spectrum of cherry, elderflower and berry, but also with yellow fruity parts. Delicate ethereal note. In the mouth, even a little passion fruit and apricot, oscillating between classic rosé and white wine character – due to the Chardonnay share also recognisable in the blind tasting. Good acid foundation. Very long.

Disgorged on 10. August 2020. Straw yellow. Very fine perlage that rises quickly. Extensive aromas of yeast and brioche on the nose. Also a little vanilla. With air contact also herbaceous notes of mint, nettle and sorrel. In the mouth with fine foam, great complexity and at the same time a certain compactness. A little bit salty. Ripe yet tense acidity, reminiscent of a still partially green wild strawberry. Grapefruit and citrus in the enormously long finish.

Cuvée of 50% Pinot noir and 50% Chardonnay, disgorged in October 2020. Straw yellow with a light pink touch. Fine perlage, whose initially high intensity diminishes a little after some time.

Foaming well on the tongue, sweet cherry again, but more pronounced than on the nose. Shows style and substance. Very long.

Salmon pink. Fine pearls. Floral and fruity nose with typical Pinot scent of strawberry and raspberry. On the palate with fine foaminess. Shows backbone and, as a Rosé, has “a lot of meat on the bone”. Discreet fine tart note in the finish. Very long and persistent. An hour of rest after opening the bottle led to a remarkable increase in our tasting.

Fine yeasty Pinot scent with hints of strawberry, very close to a rosé wine. Refreshing, precise and clear on the palate, glides easily over the tongue. In the finish a little sweet jam, but at the same time also spicy grapefruit aromas. Very long.

Reflective lemon yellow. Very fine pearls. Fine yeasty, delicately floral nose with hints of melon and exotic fruits. Fine mousseux. Gripping Riesling character that is not afraid of acidity, but packs it excellently. Coherent, balanced and at peace. Does not need aromatic effects to convince, perhaps that is why it runs the risk of being a little underestimated at first sip. Great elegance and finesse, excellent length.

Initially gripping in the mouth, not a pussyfooter, also not a loudspeaker, but a personality with a healthy self-confident appearance. Fine foam. Needs air in its current phase of development. Then becomes clearly finer and more distinguished without losing expressiveness. Excellent length.

Complex on the nose, the taste experience continues almost seamlessly in the mouth. Animating acidity. Shows clear sparkling wine character. Very long and persistent.

“Kiss Kiss Maddies Lips" – the name and the artist's label are the programme. The colour of Jan Klein's Pétillant naturel, a cuvée of 50% Pinot noir précoce and 50% Pinot noir, is reminiscent of the strawberry mouth pictured here. Cloudy strawberry red. Fragrance of strawberry, raspberry and some redcurrant against a floral background. Striking on the palate, characterised by fine carbonic acid and a challenging phenolic, which is more comparable to a fierce tongue than a breathed kiss. Very good length.

Distinctly cloudy and almost opaque in the glass. Pure lemon. Both in color, aroma and taste: lemon dominates. Only with a little air influence aromas of ripe pear emerge. In addition, a hint of mint and a piquant, animating acidity, which is still pushed by the carbonic acid present. Clear Saar character. Very long lasting.
