92+ Points!  The 2013 Grüner Veltliner Spiegel Erste Lage is Vincent Bründlmayer's third vintage of this cru after he purchased the elevated vineyard from the family in 2010. He gives a Burgundian-inspired interpretation of Grüner Veltliner here and another great Veltliner besides the famous Lamm of his Dad. In the Spiegel vineyard the vines root in calcareous soils with occasional gravel veins. Because of the well aerated position the grapes ripen slow and healthy until end of October/beginning of November and give refreshing wines of good concentration and structure. Fermented in domestic acacia and oak barrels as well as in French barriques and stainless steel where the wine aged for 3 months (with repeated bâtonnage) before the different barrels were united in a large wooden cask the 2013 barrel sample appears fresh, very subtle, precise and discreetly spicy on the nose offering a brilliant citrus flavor. On the palate this full-bodied, mineral, sweet and salty wine exhibits a vibrancy, transparency and finesse that so many other Grüners from Erste Lagen lack in 2013. This is surely a big and expressive wine you can enjoy for at least 12 years.  Stephan Reinhardt, eRobertParker.com #215, October 2014
