98 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "What a breathtakingly vibrant and delicate nose this great riesling GG has! A ray of light falls through a high window and falls on the floor at your feet. Super-focused and crystalline on the medium-bodied palate where the power is masterfully underplayed. This has an exotic side, but it is so restrained. Incredibly long, pure finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2024. (9/2/23)"

94-96 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Vinous): "[$130 list] The 2022 Riesling Westhofener Brunnenhäuschen Grosses Gewächs abuts the Morstein, but it is slightly more elevated with its limestone overlaid with terra rossa rich in iron oxide. Flinty reduction still holds sway on the nose. However, the palate comes with a smooth, serene and gentle texture of lemon zest bedded on soft, pillowy yeast, yet with many directions and zing, driving forward with gentle force. The finish tapers to beautiful, lemon-pervaded slenderness. The phenolic grip manifests on the finish with beautiful finesse and zesty, citric definition. The 2022 is a lovely and intriguing mix of obliqueness and directness. It's very long and very fine in the face of 2022. Wow. (Bone-dry) Drink: 2028-2050. (Sep 2023)"

95 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2022 Brunnenhäuschen Westhofen Riesling GG opens with a beautifully pure, refined and elegant bouquet from red-colored clay soils covering limestone rocks. The nose is deep, pure and saline, dense and intense but elegant, with yeasty notes intertwined with ripe and concentrated but lush fruit aromas. Very complex and pure on the palate, this is a full-bodied, refined, precise and elegant, seamlessly textured and enormously saline-finishing Riesling from limestone soils with marl layers. It's a fascinating complex and highly refined Riesling. 12.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2023. Drink: 2026-2050. (12/29/23)"

94+ points Ulrich Sautter (Falstaff): "The wine is lime-spicy in the aroma, peppery, also yeasty. It shows almost no fruit! On the palate the wine is punchy, hearty and textured, somewhat robust in appearance but with a lot of energy, mineral-based and with a very good future. Alcohol 12.5%. (11/11/23)"

94 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 18 23. The 2022er Brunnenhäuschen Westhofen Riesling GG, as it is referred to on the front label, displays a gorgeously smoky, spicy, and herbal nose of aniseed, thyme, rosemary, smoke, spearmint, a hint of pineapple, and acacia. The wine has great presence and intensity on the well-structured and playful palate. The finish is beautifully long, tight, and energetic, and the after-taste is all about spices and fine zest. This gorgeous dry Riesling combines finesse with intensity. 2028-2042. (Sep 2023)"
