89+/100 Punkte Robert Parker September 2017 The 2015 Oberflachs Auf der Mauer has a deep, pure, fine, licorice and dark cherry bouquet with oaky/toasty aromas. On the palate this is a charming, rich, pretty juicy and intense but rather broad and saturating Pinot Noir from a very steep, terraced, warm and dry vineyard. This is pretty rich and powerful but a less exciting Pinot Noir compared to the Rüeget.
91+/100 Punkte Robert Parker Sept 2017 Stäger's 2015 Pinot Noir Barrique from Maienfeld has a dark ruby color and offers a pure, deep, fresh, spicy/flinty and elegant bouquet of ripe dark fruits. Full-bodied, vital and fresh on the palate, with a tiny bit of CO2 and a tight, vital structure as well as lingering minerals and fine tannins, this is a stunningly good wine with a long, complex finish. Still terribly young but vibrant and tight, this 2015 has great aging potential of at least 15 years. Ex-cellar price: 30 CHF. Tasted in Zurich, August 2017.
91/100 Punkte Robert Parker, 29th Sep 2017 The 2014 Malanser Blauburgunder Reserva has a dark purple color and opens with a very toasty but also floral, slatey bouquet of perfectly ripe cherry and dark berry aromas. Full-bodied, ripe and sweet on the silky palate, this is an intense and stunningly powerful Pinot Noir for that difficult vintage. Its fruit is quite developed, but the wine is still very firm and provided with lots of mealy tannins that are still a bit dry on the finish. This is an excellent long-distance runner that should be cellared for another 7-8 years.
88/100 Punkte Robert Parker September 2017 The 2015 Osterfingen Oberhallau Blauburgunder Zwaa offers a clear, fresh, fruit-intense and spicy bouquet of ripe, thick-skinned cherries along with some toasty notes. The full-bodied wine is silky textured, elegant and reveals rich, intense fruit along with a lot of power. The tannins are fine and ripe, the finish very aromatic and concentrated. An impressive but powerful Pinot Noir from Schaffhausen that is sourced from two different plots, one on heavy clay soils, the other on gravels.
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Feb 2019 Vinified in used pièces, the 2017 Malanser Chardonnay is clear, bright and fresh on the rather lean, reductive and fruity nose that reveals crystalline mineral expressions. Firm, intense and piquant on the palate, this is an intense and powerful but elegant and racy Chardonnay from the Selvenen. It did not undergo malolactic fermentation and comes along pretty racy and piquant but not as quiet as the Gantenbein Chardonnay. Fresh. Tasted November 2018.
91/100 Punkte Falstaff April 2019 Elegantes Bouquet mit Noten von Agrumen, darunter Grapefruit und Mandarine. Ausserdem reife Mango und Ananas, sowie Mirabelle. Am Gaumen straffe, elegante Säure, dezente Fruchtaromatik und salzig wirkender, langer, mineralischer Abgang.
91-92/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb. 2019 The 2017 Malanser Pinot Noir Fidler is dark, deep and spicy on the ripe and concentrated (cherry) nose. The palate is tight and fresh, very well concentrated and fleshy, with a good grip and chocolate flavors. Quite powerful. Tasted as a sample in November 2018.
