Tasting Notes

Christmann wines are a testament to the stunning Pfalz countryside, the remarkable soil, and the ideal climate, all intertwined with their family's rich history and unwavering passion. Since 1798, they have taken pride in preserving and nurturing the Palatine terroir. This wine boasts a harmonious blend of fruit and minerality, maintaining equilibrium from start to finish. The nose reveals a bouquet of florals and spices, with hints of straw, meadow herbs, and white flowers. On the palate, flavors of Amalfi lemons, mint, and blood orange intermingle, guided by precise acidity and underpinned by a saline limestone minerality.

Biscuit character at first, which reminds me of great vintage champagne, then ripe-mirabelle and citrus character comes through. So succulent and joyful, but all this is tightly focused on a rather small target in the drinker’s mind. And who wouldn't want this wine to press that pleasure button? From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification.

Robert Parker

From a plot inside the Mandelgarten, Christmann's 2019 Meerspinne GG is deep, fine and pure on the complex and stony nose. Round and juicy on the palate, this is an intense and juicy, very complex and sustainable Riesling cru with fine salinity, a seamless and chalky texture and with remarkable finesse and vitality. There are lemon flavors and chalky notes on the firm and persistent finish.

Jancis Robinson

An almost understated fragrance benefits from a bit of airing to reveal glimpses of yellow fruit, floral nuances and a refreshing herbal breeze. The palate is a little less shy and impresses with the truly juicy fruit of peach, nectarine and grapefruit, before salty minerality and vibrant acidity give a cooler dimension to the flavour. A herbal piquancy adds further sophistication.
