Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher “Ellergrub” Riesling 2017

"The 2017 Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling offers a spectacularly intense, refined and, in fact, seamlessly textured nose that intermixes the perfectly ripe and concentrated fruit of 80-year-old ungrafted vines with the delicately flinty and crunchy notes of the blue slate soil that characterizes the Ellergrub terroir. The 2017 did not ferment to fully dry and comes along as a powerful, rich, dense and lush yet finessed Riesling with firm structure and a long, intense, perfectly juicy finish. It will take some years to fully integrate the 7.8 grams per liter of unfermented sugar, but with a long perspective, this is a great dry Riesling from one of Enkirch's top vineyards. The aftertaste is impressive in its lush, aromatic, crystalline and super salty and stony character. This is a great wine at 12% alcohol, and I am curious to follow its development over the next 10 to 15 years." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher “Steffensberg” Riesling 2017

"From 60-year-old ungrafted vines, the 2017 Enkircher Steffensberg Riesling opens with a pure and crunchy, beautifully fresh and elegant bouquet that reflects the reddish colored slate and indicates opulent and refined Riesling fruit. Lush and intense on the palate, with some fine oaky tannins, a certain oak flavor and tannin astringency, this is a round, juicy but precise and crystalline Riesling with a dense and compact yet still somewhat closed finish that asks for further cellaring." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Riesling “Detonation” 2017

"Assembling grapes from the Kinheimer Rosenberg, the Dhroner Hofberg and the Oberemmeler Altenberg in the Saar Valley, of which 50% are old, ungrafted vines, the 2017 Riesling Detonation opens with a clear, precise and aromatic Riesling bouquet of perfectly ripe and concentrated fruit aromas intermixed with a crystalline and flinty terroir note. Silky, lush and elegant on the palate, this is a very fine and lingeringly salty Riesling that reflects the old vines and low yields of the top vineyards where the grapes were sourced. This is already an excellent wine with remarkable finesse and persistency. The finish is beautifully crunchy and salty and highly stimulating. Dangerous wine!" - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Riesling “Escheburg” 2017

"The 2017 Riesling Escheburg is beautifully deep, fine and aromatic on the nose, almost Gewürztraminer-like but scented of very fine slate notes and crystalline purity. On the palate, the wine is lush, refined and salty-elegant. Sourced from the domain's five "grands crus," the 2017 is a beautifully balanced and charmingly juicy Escheburg with crunchy slate flavors and lots of salinity on the finish. The wine has class and style and already drinks perfectly, though it can surely age for more than a decade. Very long but always fresh and crunchy. Fabulous! This was macerated for 12 hours and fermented in oak." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Riesling Kabinett Trocken “C A I” 2017

"Immich's 2017 Riesling Kabinett Trocken C A I offers ripe, intense and pretty juicy fruit on the nose intertwined with a subtle slate aroma. Bottled with 10.5% alcohol, this is an intense, juicy, well-structured and refreshing Riesling with floral aromas on the nicely pure and slatey-crunchy finish. The wine is elegant and reveals good, mineral-refreshing length with stimulating salinity and grip and a pretty rich character for an entry-level wine from purchased grapes. Aeration helps a lot here." - Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
