A laser beam of fruit and mineral. Vivid aromas and flavors of apricot, mandarin orange, vanilla and mineral are etched into an incisive structure. The texture is creamy, yet the overall impression is very intense and focused. (BS)
Even in half bottle the 2001 Oberhäuser Brücke Auslese from Helmut Dönnhoff is still quite young and reticent on both the nose and palate, but the promise if very easy to see. The nose reluctantly offers up scents of apple, grapefruit, slate, honeycomb, Brücke spice tones and a lovely floral topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-full, bright and racy, with a fine core of fruit, bright, tangy acids, impeccable focus and excellent length and grip on the still quite primary finish. In half bottle I would give this wine at least another three or four years, and in full more like six or seven years of cellaring. It will be stellar in time.
Sweetened scallions can be discerned in the nose of the medium to full-bodied 2001 Riesling Auslese Oberhauser Brucke. A wine of great harmony, depth, and power, it coats the palate with lingering poached pear and spice flavors. (PR)
Fine, more focused than the Niederhäuser Hermannshohle with more marked acidity. Extremely concentrated and impressively tense, considering its charge of sheer exuberantly ripe fruit. 19/20 points (JR)
