99 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Breathtaking nose of pineapple chutney and curry leaf with giant leesy complexity, swirling together to create a great cloud of mystery. Then you descend into a deep pit of minerality. Almost supernatural freshness and energy on the blade runner sharp palate. Are you strong enough for this direct confrontation with the great God of wine? From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. (9/2/23)"

95-97 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)"

96+ points Ulrich Sautter (Falstaff): "Somewhat masked, spontaneous fermentation notes, spicy, apple, fennel, caraway seeds, the big picture emerges behind it. The palate has an arrow-straight acidity that transports maritime notes, salty touch, some oyster water, tight extract, fine phenolics, long, very young. Alcohol 13%. (11/11/23)"

96 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "From the core parcels in the cru, the 2022 Morstein Westhofen Riesling GG is pure, intense and chalky on the elegant, dense and spicy, darker-toned nose that is still a bit untamed but deep and exciting, even with woodruff aromas! Enormously mineral and tannic on the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich and enormously complex, masculine and monolithic Riesling that needs a lot of time in the cellar to develop and refine. A highly promising Riesling! 12.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2023. Drink: 2029-2050. (12/29/23)"

94 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 19 23. The 2022er Morstein Westhofen Riesling GG, as it is referred to on the front label, offers a superbly compelling and layered nose of wild herbs, fine spices, smoke, spearmint, wet stone, jasmine, acacia, and musky rose. The wine impresses through its presence and depth on the palate, yet the zesty kick of acidity and spicy presence make for a refreshing side to the superbly long and imposing finish. This quite mighty expression of dry Riesling is really super impressive. 2027-2037. (Sep 2023)"
