Burg Layer Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

Brief notes from the VDP auctions, so take this with a grain of salt. Classic kabi and one of my favourites this auction. Juicy yellow stone fruits, herbs, racy acidity, impressive length. Very elegant.

NB: Kabi's from this set of auctions have been somewhat disappointing (looking at you Egon), but surprisingly, the Bad Krueznach auction delivered on some really classic and delicious kabi's, most of which went for reasonable prices. This kabi, the Goldloch from Joh. Bapt. Schafer (best value buy imo), the Kirchspiel from Groebe, Kai Schatzel's Pettenthal, and of course, the Keller Schubertslay. From the Mosel, I only really enjoyed the kabi's from Fritz Haag, Clemens Busch, and Grunhaus, but I felt they were playing on a lower level. Would be good to taste all these together again to compare.

@George Doolan The Schafer kabi's awesome, but like last year... Weak prices. He needs to up his PR game 🤣

Pittermännchen Großes Gewächs Riesling 2013

Sebastien #Schäfer has wasted no time in proving why he fully deserves to be a member of #Germany's elite #VDP...a finely chiseled piece of crystal-clear, vibrant #Riesling...shimmering with intense minerality...needing at least another 5-7 years bottle age. — 7 years ago

Dorsheimer Pittermännchen Trockenbeerenauslese Riesling Goldkapsel 2003

2003, given time, is bound to go down in #German #wine history as one of its greatest late-harvest vintages together with 1921, 1934, 1937, 1949, 1953, 1959, 1971, 1976...a remarkable achievement that will no doubt outlive us all! #Goldkapsel — 7 years ago
