96 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "All the spices of the bazaar are married to generous yet fresh exotic fruit. Only medium-bodied for a site that leans more towards the rich and full-bodied direction. And after the tsunami of fresh fruit comes a second wave of staggeringly fresh minerality. Great vitality right to the end of the long, super-straight road. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold. (9/2/23)"

94 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "Wittmann's 2022 Aulerde Westhofen Riesling GG is super clear, refined and elegant on the deep and pure nose that is also intense due to fruit from old vines that were planted in 1949 and 1959. It's slightly reductive but attractively so and intermingled with discreet yeasty and mocha notes. On the palate, this is a very pure and mineral, firmly structured Riesling with concentration and power yet still a somewhat astringent finish. 12.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2023. Drink: 2027-2040. (12/29/23)"

93 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Vinous): "[$95 list] The 2022 Riesling Westhofener Aulerde Grosses Gewächs is made from the estate's oldest vines, planted in 1949 at an unusual density of 8,000 vines/ha in the rich marls of Aulerde. The vineyard still cannot be navigated by tractor in its narrow rows. The nose is vivid and direct with lifted lemon and flinty yeast. With air, the lemon attains all the richness of the ripest Amalfi lemon. The palate is concentrated but very fluid, compact, streamlined and rounded. Lemon freshness tingles around the edges as the wine transports you deeper and deeper into the soil. Phenolics lend structure to relative richness. The 2022 is concentrated, pure and shows subtle length. (Bone-dry) Drink: 2028-2050. (Sep 2023)"
