Ayler Kupp Faß 5 Kabinett Riesling 2014

Wow so good. Nose has buttered plums and flowers turned up to 11. Incredible density for kabinett, and long. So good already but tertiary qualities just starting to peek out. Two more years this will be even better. — 18 days ago

Premium Pils Pilsener 1817

Tasty German pils. Hops and maltiness. Very classic for the style. Goes down well on a hot day when very cold. This is the same beer as in Germany I think, not a made for export version. 11.2 oz bottle. — 2 days ago

Stirn Faß 15 Riesling 2011


Light color compared to other Rieslings from the Saar. Super intense smell of crushed wet rocks. Taste is elegant and balanced. Medium length with a slightly (too) sweet finish for a dry Riesling. — 5 days ago


Battenfeld Spanier Kirchenstuck Riesling 2017

Nose: drop dead gorgeous. Just that fusion perfume thing. Fruit. Mineral. Some age. Wow. As it opens this indescribable prettiness. Gods lemon oil.

Palate is great. Juicy. Almost a spicy mineral. Perfect apricot fruit. Very subtly apricotty. Amazingly delicious. A bit crunchy. Vibrant. Wow. As it opens gods sweet lemon.

Bought from fass selections.

What a great wine. A brilliant version of this. Lemon oil, huge minerals, some green tea. So delicate and playful. Citrus. Citrus jelly. Really clear and mineral. Huge acid and drive on the palate. Amazing texture. Lime and rock flavors mixed with some killer herbals and bitters. Awesome structure and density but so lithe. Mosel like nimbleness and purity. Just a terrific terrific bottle. Really the biggest revelation of these recent 19 Riesling Tastings. This has just crazy and acidity and freshness. What a finish. Lime sweet tart such mineral drive on this. — a day ago

Love the name. Without makeup. Or maybe, unadorned. Cool.

@Steven Heydemann the wine is like that. I’d go further and call it untamed without makeup. It’s precocious. His 19’s are really something else. Much better than the 16’s I sold and 17’s he sent me. The best Riesling in Baden on par with Laible in 2019.


Landwein Spätburgunder 2018

This is my second bottle of Waisenhaus Spätburgunder in a few months, and this is just as enjoyable as the first one. Exceptionally well made for a ‘Landwein’. — 8 days ago
