John Gilman, 95 Points 

"The youthful bouquet is already showing the great complexity to come, offering up scents of pink grapefruit, a hint of blood orange, wild yeasts, a glorious bath of salty, slate minerality, lemongrass and plenty of Rausch smokiness in the upper register. No doubt, the marvelous vein of botanicals that this terroir often shows with a bit of bottle age are also lurking here on the nose. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and very refined in its structural chassis, with a very impressive core, ripe, seamless acids and simply outstanding length and grip on the electric and perfectly balanced finish. 2028-2075."

Wine Advocate, 94 Points 

"The 2018 Rausch GG is very pure, crystalline and flinty on the intense, fragrant, stony and lemony nose. Refined and elegant on the palate, this is a lush, very intense, lingering and complex Riesling from Saarburg that develops an enormously powerful and intense finish yet keeps its mineral freshness and lightness. A stunning dry Riesling and the finest of the GG trio here.  Drink: 2025-2040."

Vinous, 93 Points 

"Sea breeze and subtle smokiness share aromatic billing with fresh lime and apple. The feel is alluringly silken, but the midpalate is loaded with tingling animation of lime zest, tart apple skin, and crystalline stony impingements, all of which persist on a buoyant, vibrant and mouthwateringly saline finish. Drink: 2020-2032."

Alcohol: 12%
