About this winery

Olivier Humbrecht is one of the world's most renowned winegrowers. He is a Master of Wine and has been described by Robert Parker as the greatest white winemaker on earth.

A flinty touch of promising reduction still hovers on the nose but cheeky floral and fruity hints of honeysuckle, jasmine and peach shimmer through. The palate unites all of these aromatic notions on a textured, layered and concentrated palate. The hints of honeysuckle spice are intensified by the ripe zestiness of Amalfi lemon and tangerine. The finish is dry and long, with ample refreshment from these gorgeous citrus notes. This is glorious now in its youthful exuberance but has the concentration, structure and fruit to age beautifully.

February 2017

The 2015 Muscat Goldert opens with a deep, fresh and mineral bouquet with super ripe but precise fruit aromas. Full-bodied but super pure and fresh, this is a really stunning, firmly structured and grippy Muscat. The finish is pure, lean and fresh, stimulatingly salty and crisp. A great Goldert in fact! 13.5% alcohol, almost one percent point more than usual (except for 2003, 2009 and 2012). Tasted as a sample a few days before the bottling.
