Scharzhof Riesling 2019

My first Egon Müller. Pure honey. Decadently sweet but never overdone with subtle acidity. Very interesting wine. — 18 days ago

Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese Riesling 2014

Svengali like nose. Everything about this wine is super sized yet nothing yells, “look at me, look at me”. As an experiment I placed the bottle in the refrigerator and drank a little every day until it became flabby on day 6. — 5 months ago

Stellar producer.

Wiltinger Braune Kupp Mosel Riesling Auslese 1989

An eye opener. A kaleidoscope of flavors on the nose . Maybe I’m crazy but a beautiful note of bay leaf. In the mouth insane complexity joined by a touch of sweetness . No sense of fatigue here. — 2 years ago

Auction. Intense botrytis in lean (by Egon standards) kabinett frame. Length and complexity for days. However, disjointed acidic finish that I’m hoping isn’t a telltale sign for how 2001s will end up. Serious class and unparalleled pedigree. — a month ago

Château Belá Riesling 2016

Crazy value from Slovakia! Nice weight on this with loads of citrus up front, a mid-palate of sizzling acidity on top of chalk, flint, and pine, and finally a yeasty/bready finish that lasts and lasts. Very cool. — 7 months ago

Scharzhofberger Auslese Riesling 1976

Tasted blind, from two combined bottles. Dark gold color. Hazy in the glass because our host wanted to include the fine sediment in the pours. Great nose. Notes of apricot, petrol, rocks and stones, some spice. Sweet impact in the mouth, packs a wallop with its still present light acidity. Guessed 60’s-70’s German. Over the evening this grew and grew, delivering some Wow moments for everyone. — 8 months ago

you literally combined the bottles? What if one were off? Wouldn’t that ruin the other?

I made the same comment to our host but he knew how to approach it. All the wines were combined after lengthy decants to be sure they were good to be combined. He felt the old wines showed better by complementing each other in the service. In the end he was right.

Solo decants then combined

Scharzhofberger Spätlese Riesling 1997

Perfectly balanced 1997 Scharzhofberger Spätlese. Beautiful golden colour with a lovely pronounced noose of apples, lemon, tangerine and peach. Over the palate you’ll find different layers of fruit with faultless harmony between sweetness and citrus acidity. It still has a massive ageing potential.. — 5 months ago

Not surprised it's still young. I'm drinking my 76s and 83s. And top producers are invariably in great shape.

Great colour, smell and taste. Full taste and dark colour make this wine really special. We had anno 2013 so a 7 year old wine which was fabulous. — 7 months ago
