The off-dry 2019 Riesling Kabinett Jean Baptiste is a super clear, refined and classic Kabinett from slate. It displays a bouquet of bright fruit aromas intertwined with herbal and floral aromas of finely grained slate. Bottled with 10.5% alcohol. t
Who cares what is for dinner, this wine will work with it (as long as it’s not pudding)! A very attractive and refreshing, medium-dry riesling with so much wild-herb and tart-peach character. Long, dry, mineral finish with an attractive spritz that pulls you back to the glass. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 92 points. Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com August 2020
