Reviews
• Robert Parker: 88 The 2017 Grand Pétillant Naturel Riesling Wolke für Zwei has an intense citrus color and a reductive but intense bouquet. Creamy, yeasty and fresh on the palate, this is a pretty rich and mouth-filling Pet Nat. Its 13% alcohol gives texture and power but doesn't stimulate me that much. Try with your dinner! Tasted September 2018.
• JamesSuckling.com: 93 An unusually concentrated and well-structured pét-nat that doesn't leave any doubt (it's not going to oxidize in the glass like some do). Lots of herbal, mineral and yeasty character.
• Wine Enthusiast: 88 The funky yeast notes of this cloudy pét-nat dominate the nose before lemony freshness takes over. The yeastiness is even more intense on the light, fizzy and slender palate: it is reminiscent of baker's yeast. Altogether this creates funky, zesty and dry freshness. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
