The Dr. Bürklin-Wolf estate is the sole (monopole) owner of this top-rated site in Ruppertsberg, which has a total extent of 8 ha, of which only 5,2 ha are classified as a G.C. site. The origin of this site goes back to the late medieval era. It was classified as a First Growth in terms of the Royal Bavarian Site Classification. It is located at the foot of the Mittelhaardt mountains, and benefits from an advantageous temperate microclimate. Deposits of gravel in terraces with layers of clay in the soil provide the Gaisböhl wine with its huge body and elegant acidity, the colored sandstone ensures a very long maturation potential.

Tasting Notes

A very pithy and concise Gaisböhl. Aromas of mirabelle with a herbal note. In the mouth fresh peach, very precise fruit with a clear structure. A wine
with an enormous body and pressure in the long finish.

"The 2019 Gaisböhl G.C. is pure, fresh and flinty on the lemon-scented nose that is the youngest of all the 2019s of the domain at this early stage. Juicy, piquant and salty on the palate, this is an intense but pure, linear and almost weightless dry Riesling with a crystalline structure, salinity and decent finesse. The finish is intense and mineral but also juicy, with concentrated fruit flavors. A promising classic, perhaps the coolest style of the 2019 vintage here. Tasted as a barrel sample in April 2020."
