Bassermann Jordan Jesuitengarten Riesling TBA 2009
92 pts. Robert Parker
Crisp, bright Riesling with notes of fresh peach and spice against a mineral-driven background of slate and dry fruit. A clean, fresh acidity complements the wine, providing balance.
The story of the Bassermann-Jordan winery is the story of a family dynasty which, together with others, established and greatly influenced quality-based viticulture in Germany for almost 300 years. Each generation produced great personalities who used their intelligence, expertise and flair as well as their financial and political influence to safeguard and improve the reputation of the winery and the outstanding wines produced in the Palatinate area of Germany – until they ended up among the top echelon of the wine world.
