Rare Sightings, Part Two:
2017 Keller Kirchspiel Grosses Gewächs

Posted by Joe Salamone

Two weeks ago, we offered Keller's 2012 Kirchspiel GG. It sold out in a couple of hours.

Today, we're happy to present Keller's 2017 Kirchspiel GG. I should warn you from the outset that the 2017 is much less available than the 2012.

Keller's 2017s are, without a doubt, some of the greatest wines of the vintage. It was a very low-yielding harvest, but with near-perfect conditions leading up to picking. The resulting wines are intensely concentrated, pristinely mineral, and regally elegant.

Kirschspiel is always, first and foremost, about minerality. The 2017 drives this home emphatically. The 2017 is grippy and almost painfully intense. The tensile, chalky minerality comes across as being close to a solid form. From start to finish it is radiant, possessing incredible elegance.

I'll wrap this up. Keller's GGs have become painfully rare. There's only one other listing for the 2017 in the country. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
