27 Rg8+ wins the queen for a rook. Afterwards, black can play Rh1+ to win a rook back, but white will then take the bishop on d7 with the queen, and still be far ahead in material.

Well, a piece ahead. But after 26...Be8 27. Bh7, mate is unstoppable.

Yes, Nepo's play in Dortmund was incredibly impressive. More or less a flawless performance. I don't think I've ever seen him play so consistently well.
