Overview of the Wine
Johannes Selbach, this estates winemaker and director (as well as Terry Theises man-on-the-ground in Germany) is on fire. His wines are top flight and yet his winemaking appears to be improving with each vintage. Readers should note that Selbachs wines typically appear substantially better after a few years of cellaring. Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate

The ambitiousness of Johannes Selbach has made this estate the regions most prominent rising star. Since 1989, always among the very best wines in this collection, and 2001 is no exception. Johannes describes his style: You may have noticed our wines are a bit drier the last two vintages than they used to be, said Johannes Selbach. We know how to make reductive fruit-bombs that get high scores and stand out in big tastings, he continued, but the problem is everyone writes about those wines but nobody drink

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A lot of brilliance here and a superb vintage again; tautly floral-funky (hyacinth, fading peony, white iris) and almost peppery; a wonderful wash of balsam-soaked mineral; also very much dry-ish.
