Durbacher Plauelrain Trocken Scheurebe 2016

Nose has fresh lemon pith, sage, blackcurrant blossoms, lime peel, freshly mown field and a warm pile of granite rocks.

Palate has dried strawberry, dried red currant (really, wth is this doing in here?), lime wedge, pineapple core, green melon rind and granite chips.

Every day of the week I will tell you that I should really drink more of the Scheurebe in our collection, but I have to practice restraint. Time is always a benefit, this bottle has evolved, shedding some of its youthful acidity but still kicking ass. Laser focused, very good.

That’s a lot of fruit for a scheurebe. I usually get lots of spice and acid in mine. I haven’t gotten these ones but maybe this harvest. Hard not to drink them young!

@Chris Shultz Spice and acid is Gewürztraminer for me. You should definitely try to pick up any of the Laible stuff, killer value, stellar wines with offers finely curated by you-know-who.

Electric! Wow what acid. Insane purity. Floral like nothing else. Kumquat, white flowers, tree bark, crushed rocks, mulch, lime zest, candied lemons, so complex, it’s crazy. Huge acid, huge depth, huge minerals, huge extract, so elegant, confectionary, pure, clean. So so so so good. Perfect, fruit, mineral, everything. — 2 months ago

What a nose. Smells like a beautiful spring day after a fresh rain. Herbs. Airy mineral. So fragrant of so many “non fruit” scents it’s dizzying. Apricot skin. Incredible palate. So dense, so impactful, with huge dry extract and purity. Amazing fruit but like sucking on peach and apricot pits. It’s fruit and also pit flavors. So elegant. No hard edges and just so incredibly rocky and savory. Structure for days. Wow. This is incredible. — 5 months ago

***XII Trauben Trocken Spätburgunder 2018

Vintage 2018 | painful, I recommended this wine. Now tasted blind I did not recognize it... I thought it to be a classy Burgundy from twice or three time the price. This spätburgunder is a real treat. Smell: spices, a barnyard. Very nice indeed. Comforting taste with good balance. — 4 months ago

A genius Klingelberger. What a nose. So floral. Flower shop levels. Little shop of insane dry Riesling. Gorgeous Mosel like fruit. Smells ripe and sweet but also bone dry. Green apples. Pear. Apricot. So vivid and detailed. Just wonderful. Lime blossom, sweet lime. Endless aromas. Fresh field level 10. But also rock quarry. Staggering young Klingelberger aromas. Palate is epic like a Norwegian Viking documentary epic. Dense, structured, deep man is this deep with just stunning purity and freshness. So vivid and so detailed. This is god level balance. So long. Never ends. The purity of this wine is just incredible. Amazing finesse and elegance and screamingly mineral and very very complex on the finish. This is a staggering young Klingelberger. 9.7. Yup. Just genius. Amazing concentration and depth. Really I can’t get over how good this is. — 5 months ago
