85pointsGeh. Rat Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan 2005 Trocken QbA Riesling (Pfalz)

Starts off with beautiful scents of minerals, dried spices and a hint of peach, but not quite as attractive on the palate, where it seems heavy at times despite some unreleased CO2. Then it turns tangy-tart on the finish. This youthful wine comes across as a bit disjointed; hopefully, that will improve over the next few months in bottle and this rating will look conservative.
