I've loved the mature examples of white Burg I've had but am in means an expert. I came into a few bottles of this and it was fantastic. In fact I had a chance to share one of these bottles with some Sty-Fo folks.
I think there is a big stylistic shift in the last year or two. Check out this recent article by Bonne, which I think sums up the current state of play for white burgs. Let's hope he's right.
I thought that some of the early responses to premox, like adding more sulphur at bottling, made wines that were basically undrinkable young (and who knows what happens when they develop). Aged white burg is probably my favorite category of wine but after dumping tens of thousands of dollars down the drain I stopped buying post the 2010 vintage and sold lots of bottles. Until they solve it, I'm happy with German GG bottlings from Keller, Donnhofff, Scahefer Frolich, etc.
