Opinión de los críticos

The Wine Advocate:

From weathered sandstone soils with basalt influence, the 2019 Wachenheimer Gerümpel P.C. is very pure and remains reductive even after 10 days in the opened bottle. The wine is laser sharp and precise on the flinty, lemon-scented and comparatively brighter-toned nose. Intense and creamy on the palate but also racy and stunningly chalky, it has a tight and elegant structure but is also sharp as a sword (or an excellent Chablis)—this premier cru needs a couple of years to tell us more. It's too tight for a longer while, I'd suppose, but it is tensioned, structured and promising. This is surely a long-distance runner, so keep it, if you can catch it.

James Suckling:

Elegant, classical and mineral, this is a very sophisticated dry riesling with underplayed power and delicate spice at the long, graceful finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Biodyvin certification. Drink or hold.
