Feils is a warm site; it is also sneakily steep. Convex like a spoon, the vineyard begins mildly as you walk through it heading down to the river. However, as one reaches center-slope the incline becomes quite severe. In the pictures in the gallery, you can see the roundness and dip of the site - especially in the second picture. The lowest third of the vineyard is extremely steep. The wine this site produces is one of the most textural and luscious of the GGs; from the beginning it can show a rather broad range of fruit and spice. It also tends to drink earlier than Lauer's other GGs, though obviously this can change vintage to vintage.

Tasted from the vat in June 2019, the 2018 Feils Fass 13 (Biebelhausen Feils GG) is pretty flinty and ripe on the precise, coolish, crunchy and herbal-scented nose with cassis notes. Lush yet pure and fresh on the palate, this full-bodied and elegant wine reveals enormous salinity and vitality and a spectacular long finish with great tension. In this baking oven of the Saar, the grapes were picked pretty early (end of September) yet with around 97° Oechsle already. This gives a ripe and full-bodied yet terribly fresh and vibrant Riesling with lots of tension and finesse. Very promising. To be released in September this year.
