The Schonfels GG, as a wine, is without a doubt the most structured, brutal and mineral of Lauer’s dry wines. It smacks one upside the head like a fortress built out of slate. It is unforgiving and requires many years in bottle to integrate and become expressive. A 24- to 48-hour decant is not a bad idea. It is a monumental wine and perhaps the greatest dry wine of the Saar.
