Rheingau Riesling

Weingut Josef Leitz

Rüdesheimer Drachenstein Riesling 2001

I didn’t get anything on the nose. Completely closed off and holding back. On the palate a different story. Vibrant, juicy acidity, some apricot and the color is so inviting . This is not classified with the typical German ripeness monikers, but judging by the balanced sweetness and alcohol level I would say it’s an Auslese. German Riesling + age = match made in heaven. — 7 days ago

Neumagener Rosengartchen Von den Terrassen Riesling 2018

Wow. What a wine!

Nose is candied lemon intense white flower. Elegant richness. A kiss of honey. Dense.

Palate is rich. Luscious. Utterly delicious but so sophisticated. Almost like a honey spice.

A kiss of RS rounds it out.

A masterpiece. Almost like Keller Hubacker if it were more elegant.

Schiefergestein Bockenauer Trocken Riesling 2020

Light grassy color with some initial spritz and medium viscosity; light citrus, pineapple and charon and heavy floral, rubber, and bakery notes on the nose; so fresh and vibrant with a very dry but still mouthwatering mid-palate and finish. — 3 days ago

Reserve Finger Lakes Dry Riesling 2019

On the sweeter side but loved the acidity and zip! Apples, pears, and stone fruit. Great texture and very easy drinking. Price isn’t great @ $35 as I would pay half. — 5 days ago

Nose of citrus and herbs. Very expressive. Vivid and clean. Palate is fresh, vibrant and energetic. So pure and clean. Juicy, nimble and complete. Has that 2020 roundness but no sense of lack of freshness. Great stuff. Will go perfect with my all fish meal at Brut. — 10 hours ago

@Erik Longabardi they had a sekt but I passed. Need to try.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2018

Molitor has intensions for crazy tension. Vibrations 1000 beats a second, floats in place like a hummingbird. Auteur in that you really can't imagine this could happen by accident.

There's an elegant element from first nasal prick onward. Finger limes, clementine, lemon confections, gasoline, and flint reaching way up back. Level 8 acid hides a dose of sweet. Flavors that remind me of sugar coated grapefruit halves drizzled in honey - they go on and on and on.

the real deal

Weingut Hermann Ludes

Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling 2019

Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.

Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.

Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.

Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.

Iconic mosel spatlese.

Charta Riesling 2011

Vintage 2011 | Butter and honey in smell, vibrant taste. Quite high in alcohol, 13,5%, so for me it is a dinerwine. Paired with a Moroccan Tajine and couscous. — 16 days ago

Brauneberger Juffer 'HL' Riesling 2014

I like this in smaller sips, spread out over time. Complexity and nuance that need some focus to check-in. And a prick of sweet that gets you satiated pretty quick. Needs a few days to shine, but it gets there. Begins with racy, dank diesel, smoked lemons, dill pickle, cracked black pepper flakes suspended in honey. Ends with salty mineral laden finger limes and sweet starfruit. Best enjoyed with patience, over a week. — 9 days ago
