"[..]The 2014s Rieslings are simply excellent and the noble sweet Rieslaners are outstanding. Indeed, the wines of MC have become deeper and even more precise and elegant in recent years. I already liked the 2013s, but I was really impressed by the quality and intensity of the 2014s. These are concentrated and well balanced, and come along with moderate alcohol levels which Martin Franzen compares to those of the 1990s. They are true individuals in a very noble and balanced style, although they don't lack tension or expression.[..]"
