95 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Succulent and deep with a lot of ginger and galgant, alongside the fresh-pineapple note that’s typical for this site. Real concentration and a long, clean mineral finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certification. Drink or hold. (9/19/18)"

93+ points Stephen Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Nierstein Hipping Riesling "GG" is clear, precise and flinty on the elegant and subtle nose. Refined and perfectly balanced on the palate, this is a very elegant and playful, rather filigreed Riesling with intense fruit and lingering salinity, finesse and fine tannin grip. Excellent. Tasted at the domaine in March 2020. Drink: 2022-2035. (May 2020)"

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 43 18. This 2017er Niersteiner Hipping GG offers a quite rich and aromatic nose made of almond cream, yellow peach, pineapple and pear as well as quite some spices including clove, pepper and cinnamon. The wine offers quite some creamy presence and intensity on the palate, and acts like a pure white Burgundy wrapped into Riesling zest. The finish is very clean and long, and there is some tickly acidity as well as earthy spices coming through. This slightly bold but extremely appealing dry Riesling is superb. 2024-2032+. (Oct 2018)"

93 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "[$89 list] Gillot points out that this fourth installment of her Hipping Grosses Gewächs reflects a collection of parcels that now includes southern, southeastern and even northern exposures. As with the corresponding village-level bottling (or indeed this vintage’s Nackenheimer), scents and zesty, tart-edge palate presence of lemon and apple together make for a brightly juicy and invigoratingly piquant as well as texturally polished performance. There is also a striking saline and seemingly protein-rich (certainly umami-rich!) savor – incorporating herbal and nutty nuances as well – which puts me in mind of oyster liquor or mussel stock and lends mouthwatering depth that carries into the seriously sustained finish. The sense of concentration here is almost implosive, but without the severity conveyed by the corresponding Pettenthal. Drink: 2019-2028. (Jul 2019)"
