Ah yes. I know I bring up that unfortunate meme on my own.
It has recently been resurrected on Disorder (with some limited aciton on Berserkers), with the usual suspects chiming in. That said the conversation is taking on some different aspects this time, pointing more towards taste in older Riesling than any inherent un-ageability of Donnhoff's wines. I will never seriously argue with people who say they enjoy the wines young so much that they don't see the point in aging them. That's a totally different discussion than saying the wines do not age well. They do, but they become something different. I happen to love what Donnhoff's wines become with age.

Yeah, price is the other issue. I'm willing to spend that much (50/60 USD) on German riesling, but usually only on my favorite stuff.
