Am Buhl Riesling 2020

Frankly quite amazing. 12.5%. Tasted first at the winery in Durbach - Baden and then 2 days later a second bottle at a friends home. One of the best Rieslings money can buy. Mandarine, peach, hint bitter, orange blossoms - so long. Great minerality provided by the decomposed granite this area is known for. Traditionally made. This area is unique as Riesling is a unicorn in Baden which is dominated by Pinot. Obviously opened way to early but hard to resist. More big and round like the Pfalz Rieslings and not steely and sharp like the Mosel or Nahe. — 25 days ago

Baden Pinot Noir 2017

E&M are just different. And the only wine which never made it was the 2013 Rose. That said 2017 was a difficult year for them and the wines of the lower priced wines such as this entry level one - were essentially undrinkable when young. Now the wine has mellowed out. Chassis, marble dust, herbs, resin and super bright acidity. There is lots of fruit mostly cranberry, sour orange, lime. Oregano? This needs a decant and spicy food which can stand up to the acidity. — 11 days ago

Buntsandstein Pinot Noir 2011

Nose is that old burgundy water on hot brick. Sweet cherry. Earth.

Palate is sweet cherry. The best sweet cherry licorice ever. Hints of tomato.

There is a magnificence about this. Almost an herbal spiciness after an hour.

Muschelkalk Weißburgunder 2020

E&M Weissburgunder goes feral beyond their trademark restrained wild spirit.

4 days of skins, it's copper tones, grippy, and full of acetone. And it's really good. Wild but grown up, responsible.

Expressively generous aromas loaded up with sour fruit and vinegar - naval orange, apricot, basil, and VA that tickles the back upper parts. Powerful long flavors too - sour apricot, pear, and sweet orange. Wonderful.

Florian Moll told me they want to further raise the quality of their whites. What I tasted from Barrel their 2021’s were impressive.

Spätburgunder 2016

With 6y of age this has nicely mellow and shows savoury, moist undergrowth, fresh mushrooms, shy dark fruit,
On the palate this is really polished & peaking. Light bodied, the tannins polished, juicy, perfectly integrated. Nice purity and precision. Great flow & good length. Wild strawberries, wet moss, a hint of cream. So food friendly, works amazingly week with Cantonese food.
Really good stuff!

Muschelkalk Pinot Noir 2014

Light color. Super delicate and delicious. Orange zest, dusty, more raspberry than cherry, white currant? / incredibly elegant. Within the Muschelkalk bracket in the top 25 percentile range. Totally drinkable on its own. Let’s just say this is f…ing magic. Pinot at the top of its game. Would argue drink now. This is at its peak. I would not recommend a decant. This is NOT a big in your face Pinot! — 9 days ago

Kabinett Trocken Weißer Burgunder 2020

Weissburgunder in more yellows than greens. Orchard fruits over celery bitters, with a texture that wraps your tongue like olive oil or lemon soft serve.

Pleasant and subtly vibrant, faint neutral aromas of yellow apples, zest of lemons and limes. Flavors are pronounced and stay for a bit - granny smith apples and sweet naval orange.

And that texture - like a comfort blanket.
