John Gilman 94+ points! "The 2017 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Grosses Gewächs is also a beautiful wine, with just a touch more refinement and inherent complexity evident on both the nose and palate. This is still very much a young wine (like the Juffer GG) and will deserve more than a decade in the cellar to reach its peak, but it is going to be stellar when it is ready to go. The wine offers up a superb aromatic constellation of sweet grapefruit, lime, wild yeasts, a beautiful array of botanicals, dried flowers, plenty of smokiness and a glorious base of slate minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with laser-like focus, stellar mineral drive and a very, very long, very pure and nascently complex finish. A truly outstanding wine in the making."
