Stephan Reinhardt writes: "Helmut Dönnhoff can be really proud. His son Cornelius, responsible for the wines in recent years, has bottled probably the best wine series in the history of the domaine."

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a warm parcel named after the nearby community of Birkenfeld whose nobility once owned it, the “two star” 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Spatlese smells of peach preserves, spiced apple, and root beer. It is opulently rich and creamy with honey and caramel leavened by lime citricity. While lacking the mineral interest, clarity or sense of weightlessness conveyed by this year’s “one star” Spatlese, this represents a refined expression of very pure fruit and noble rot and should be capable of at l...

91 points Decanter: "This is one of the most widely distributed wines of the Dönnhoff estate in the Nahe, and it showcases their pristine, clear-cut but expressive style of Riesling. Fermented in large oak but matured in stainless steel, it once again is a celebration of vibrant citrus, lemon, lime and grapefruit but with an added bounce of juicy tropical fruit at the centre. It displays the signature Dönnhoff tautness. (AK)" (04/2019) 91 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Tonschiefer was also bottled a few days prior to my arrival at the estate, but again,...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and focused, with peach, sweet corn, vanilla custard and lime notes. Remains elegant, though rich, with good harmony and length. Shows its potential on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. (BS)" (04/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Spatlese Eisendell emphasizes melons, pears, and honey, giving a rich, lush, drippingly juicy and sweet, yet delicate palate impression, and finishing with impressive refinement and wet stone, smoky, tingling intimations of min...


Stephan Reinhardt writes of the 2017 & 2018 vintages from Kruger-Rumpf: "Luckily, the low pH levels compensated the low acidity perfectly in 2018, and it's impossible to say which of the two vintages was the greater one here. The 2018s have more power but are fascinatingly clear, whereas the 2017s are impressively concentrated. I tend to say the dry 2017s are finer than the 2018s, whereas the 2018s are bright and the better off-dry and fruity-sweet wines, but as you can see, there are exceptions, so even this is no rule. In any case, there are more 2018s...

96 points James Suckling: "The strength of this wine lies in the finesse and delicacy that creep up on you from behind. Super-fine nectarine and mandarin-orange notes. Moderate sweetness for the category makes this a great paté de foie gras wine. Very long, silky finish. Drink or hold. " (09/2018) 92 points Vinous: "“There wasn’t much botrytis this year,” relates Diel, so this bottling mostly represents healthy but super-ripe and concentrated berries. Nectarine and white peach deliver an enticing nose and luscious, brightly juicy abundance on a glossy,...

93 points James Suckling: "Stunning peach and lemon-curd character, combined with stunning freshness and elegance. Long, filigree finish. Drink now. " (11/2018) 90 points Vinous: "From the cool, high-elevation, gravelly Liebfrauenberg portion of the Altenberg Einzellage, while on paper high in residual sugar (at 45 grams namely) this Kabinett displays the bright citricity and consequent tension – not to mention the transparency to shimmering, invigoratingly tingling crystalline mineral impingements – that the vintage’s “Quarzit” bottling lacked. And at...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a loamier site, the 2006 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Kabinett displays subtle creaminess allied to genuine delicacy, featuring refined variations on spiced apple and pear, rhubarb preserves, and tingling finishing mineral suggestions. Amazingly, considering what I would not hesitate to call its “true Kabinett lightness,” this has around the same 10% alcohol as the powerful, scarcely-delicate “Quarzit” bottling. It also harbors yet higher – nearly ten grams – acidity. (DS)" (10/2008)
Price: $27.99

93 points James Suckling: "An off-dry riesling that's brimming with the smoky character that porphyry soil produces. The balance between the peaches and nectarines and the lively acidity on the medium-bodied palate is spot on. With more power at the finish this would have rated even higher. Drink or hold." (07/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Smoky struck flint wreaths, white peach, fig and lime on the nose. The palate impression is glossy and lusciously-fruited, with a bittersweet, crunchy hint of cassis berries adding to its appeal. The residual sugar is sup...

David Schildknecht writes: "The trend continues at this address (as at so many others) toward lower residual sugar among the dry wines – in Helmut Dönnhoff’s words (also familiar from other growers) “the wines are becoming more ‘puristic’” – but he sought to reassure me, “don’t worry, we aren’t going to go heating up our cellar in order to get the wines down to two or three grams...” That having been said, Dönnhoff is entirely candid concerning his fascination with how-low-can-you-go Riesling. “Often when I go back and taste my dry wines from an earlier ...
Price: $19.99



Vinous: "This featured a higher percentage of spontaneous fermentation than did the corresponding “Porphyr” bottling, and that shows in some residual aromatic yeastiness and smokiness that slightly clouds scents of mango and Persian melon. The mouth feel is surprisingly soft, with a luscious emphasis on sheer fruitiness; the finish caressingly-sustained and a bit superficially sweet. Apropos sweetness, residual sugar in this cuvée, although it has been steadily diminishing, is still at a level (here 35 grams) where the wine works best under conditions of...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pineapple, grapefruit, and heady essence of gardenia dominate the Diel 2008 Dorsheimer Goldloch Riesling Spatlese, with hints of botrytis-engendered honey emerging as it opens to the air. An alkaline mineral note adds welcome counterpoint to the wine’s effusive (psychologically suggestive as well as actual) sweetness. The texture is polished, glycerin-rich, and creamy, characteristics which – along with the sense of liquid floral perfume – make for a soothing, seductive, buoyant, and soaring finish. Feel free to ...

95 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Hermannshöhle Spätlese from the estate has no intention of being upstaged by the Brücke this year, as this too is a brilliant wine. The nose jumps from the glass in a complex blaze of fresh pineapple, pungent citrus zest, apple, a beautiful base of slate, wild yeasts and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, complex, medium-full and beautifully suave on the attack, with superb mineral undertow and a laser-like and electric finish. Equally stunning juice. (Drink between 2025-2075) " (04/2019) 95 poi...


99 points James Suckling: "A dense and layered white with minerals, salt, white pepper, chalk, dried lemon and subtle pears. Pumice. Wow. Tiny film of oil. Creamy and insane. What a wine. Magic. One for the cellar. Drink or hold." (09/2019) 95 points Decanter: "From a site of slate and porphyry facing the Nahe river and from Cornelius Dönnhoff's capable hands, this is an expression of stone and sun. A very scented nose of citric ripeness sets the tone. The palate is mild and fresh at the same time, pristine and vivid but beautifully balanced and ripe. ...

95 points James Suckling: "Very ripe, but no less graceful, this is an extremely refined wine for this category with hints of vanilla and floral honey. Long and complex mineral finish with great freshness. Drink or hold. " (09/2018)

94 points James Suckling: "A stunning Kabinett that reinterprets this category in a barely off-dry style. Delicate, apricot nose and a ravishing interplay of fruit and acidity. Where is the smoked salmon? Where is that roast chicken? Drink or hold." (09/2018) 93 points Vinous: "Musky perfume of peony and narcissus, accompanied by mint and green tea, share aromatic billing with intimations of white peach and Persian melon. The silken palate is correspondingly luscious, coolingly herb-suffused, and loaded with billowing inner-mouth perfume. Sweet-saline,...

Bid on this 2-half-bottle lot of 2003 Dönnhoff Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Auslese Nahe (375ml) (98RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Undoubtedly the finest 2003 Auslese I tasted is Dönnhoff’s majestic 2003 Riesling Auslese Norheimer Dellchen. Its immensely complex aromas reveals a plethora of fresh herbs, minerals, slate, and apples. On the palate, this wine reveals a depth of stupendous proportions. Powerful, yet refined, it has the ethereal qualities that mark this brilliant winemaker’s best cuvées. Combining the vintage’s sensual nature with exquisite precision and refinement, this gem displays crystalline minerals enrobed in red berries whose effects linger throughout its long, sublime finish. Wow! Projected maturity: 2007-2030. Bravo to Helmut Dönnhoff for this magical line-up! (PR)" (12/2004)
Starting Bid: $97.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2002 Dönnhoff Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Spätlese Nahe (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This Spatlese is extraordinary, hovering in that zone bordering perfection in which wines touch the soul. A wine that demands introspection, the 2002 Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen reveals enormous ripeness in its slate and pear aromas. Light to medium-bodied, displaying mind-blowing focus, refinement, and depth, it demands silence and awe. Portobello mushrooms, candied limes, and flint can be detected in its highly nuanced character as well as throughout its extensive finish. All Hail the King of Spatlese! Donnhoff’s line-up of Spatlesen is second to none. (PR)" (02/2004)
Starting Bid: $227.88

Bid on this half-bottle of 2002 Dönnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein Nahe (375ml) (100JG, 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Riesling Eiswein Oberhauser Brucke is a grand slam home run for Donnhoff. It is so intense, so powerful, and so complex as to instill fear in the taster. Its apricot and peach cobbler aromas lead to a jellied core of cassis, raspberries, syrupy slate, and oodles of spices. It is simply amazing that a wine of this richness, ripeness, and depth can retain perfect definition, grip, and refinement. What is truly terrifying, however, is that Donnhoff produced a three-star Eiswein from the same vineyard in 2002, one he presumably considers better than this sublime nectar. Part of me is grateful that I was unable to taste it, however, as I have only 100 points with which to work. Bravo! Projected maturity: 2015-2040+. (PR)" (02/2004)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2001 Donnhoff Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The broad, intense 2001 Riesling Kabinett Oberhauser Leistenberg sports a nose of slate and minerals intermingled with chamomile. Loads of sweet, smoke-imbued stones can be found in this layered, delineated, rich, and surprisingly persistent Kabinett. " (10/2002)
