The weathered slate gives the Riesling citrus and peach aromas, herbal-spicy notes as well as a mineral character rich in pressure and tension. Sebastian Schäfer.
“17.5/20 points! Clean, herbaceous aromas open the sensory curtain. Fresh grapefruit and ripe, lemony acidity not only stimulate the salivary glands but also give Schäfer’s Pittermännchen a really invigorating edge. jancisrobinson.com
92+ points! Opens with a clear, intense, spicy/mineral and herbal bouquet with ripe, well concentrated fruit aromas typical for the weathered Tonschiefer soils of this cru. The slate flavors are lovely, clear and precise here, giving this wine an almost aristocratic attitude. Round, yet pure, piquant and highly elegant on the palate, this is an intense, complex and very persistent Pittermännchen. robertparker.com, 31 Dec 2016.
Some funk, but it blows off quite quickly to reveal notes of lemon and tangerine. The balance of this wine is very Mosel-like, and it has the kind of spritz and very bracing acidity I associate with those wines. This needs some time to reach its best harmony but has great ageing potential. Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com
