"(AG=94) Bright straw. Enticing aromas of spicy apricot, lime, nut oil and mint are lifted by acacia flower. Ripe and tactile, showing a bracing quality and terrific juiciness to the flavors of peach, tangerine and botanical herbs. This fantastic Riesling is very pure, long and clean, but just a little chunky right now. BottŠ—Ès parcel is located on an outside part of the main Sporen with less clay and more sandstone and sand, which is why he chose not to plant any Gew’_rztraminer there, even though the Sporen is generally viewed as one of the best spots for this variety in the whole region. (RP=92) Small but simply excellent, provided with 80-year-old Rieslings, is the parcel Jean-Christophe Bott rented in the appendix of the Grand Cru Sporen from an employee in 2012. Picked with just a touch of overripeness and botrytis the 2013 Riesling Grand Cru Sporen shows a rich, ripe, very deep and intense nose, displaying superripe yet very precise fruit aromas. Full-bodied, rich and round this is a substantial and powerful, tight and piquant Riesling with an elegant and complex finish of great intensity and length. Only 800 bottles produced. (JS=90) This is exceptionally decadent with foie gras, mineral and honey character. Full-bodied, very sweet and round. A little simple but impressive. Drink now."
