wine enthusiast 90 pts"Swirls of honey, tangerine, brioche and mineral perfume this lavishly floral sparkling wine. The palate is crispy and peachy but intently stony, too. An easy-drinking but elegant and satisfying sip with delicate effervescence. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Delicate lemon and dusty mineral tones introduce this lovely traditional-method Riesling sekt. Juicy, intensely primary lemon, green-apple and grapefruit flavors are tinged with slate on the midpalate. It's a vibrant, cutting wine with persistent tiny bubbles.. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"

iwinereview"Brilliant light yellow straw. Vibrant and effusive aromas of ripe stone fruit with lime accents. Ripe fruit also shows on a full flavored, round and softly textured palate. Richly fruity without any residual sweetness. Well done!"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"This traditional-method Riesling sekt, made from a collection of Bernkastel vineyard sites, has been a consistent crowd pleaser from vintage to vintage. It's a cutting, spry wine with delicate, persistent bubbles and concentrated green apple, lemon and lime flavors. Brut in style, with revitalizing acidity and complexities of caramelized sugar and nuts, it makes an ideal apéritif. - Anna Lee Iijima"

bti"Golden yellow color. Lively, complex aromas of roasted lemons and peaches, vanilla toffee, and grass with a supple, tangy, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, nuanced, dried mango and papaya, lemon curd, gravel, and hint of fuel finish with no oak. A richly flavorful and multifaceted sparkler."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"A heady bouquet of orange blossoms opens this lithe, vivaciously sparkling Riesling. Delicately moussed, it's elegant and spry on the palate with a shock of lemon-lime acidity that highlights luscious flavors of peach, apricot, honey and blossom. Lingers long on the finish with a delicate crushed-stone minerality. — Anna Lee Iijima"

Wine Enthusiast 91 Pts"Exuberantly floral, with notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom, yet not at all cloying or perfumy, this sparkler showcases all the delicacy and verve you expect from a Mosel Riesling. Softly effervescent, it's dry and spry on the palate, with an exceptionally long, peach-tinged finish. — Anna Lee Iijima"

wine and spirits logo 250"Thomas Hansen farms five acres of vines in Bernkastel, 90 percent riesling and ten percent pinot noir. His sparkling wine, bottle-fermented and left on the lees for a year, is elegant in its fine bubble and sleek in its flavor, with gently earthy, apple notes shaped by riesling acidity and Mosel minerality. It ends clean and fresh, a sparkling wine worthy of a seafood dinner."
