Mosel Fine Wines (94 points):
"Harvested at 82° Oechsle, this Kabinett is a little jewel in the making. Despite still being somewhat focused and restrained at this stage, the wine already reveals a show-stopping nose of cassis, minty herbs and smoky slate which reminds us immediately to the great wines from the 1990s. It proves superbly balanced on the palate and leaves a delicately light-weighted feel in the grapefruit-infused and still rather racy and slightly sharp finish. Make no mistake, most great fruity Maximin Grünhaus wines have started life along these lines. This is a textbook Kabinett in the making! 2026-2041."
