9.3

Having just attained it's drinking credentials at age 21, this Mosel Riesling sang with a mid-day Thanksgiving repast.
Medium gold color. Aromas of quince paste, grilled apricot, warm stones and a deep caramel/roasted note. Balanced, though likely too sweet for many these days. Just integral and composed, a unit in and of itself.

Kirchspiel Riesling 2017

Decanted, but it never really opened up across our 4-hour dinner. Not as viciously austere as the 16’ Abtserde we had a few days back, but in similar fashion, it does put minerality first. Firm reduction on the nose, which eventually gave way to some herbal and chalky notes, as well as hints of citrus fruit. On the palate, it was more approachable - weighty with huge extract, riper stone fruits, juicy acidity, and intense chalkiness. Really enjoyed this, but it’s certainly in need of some serious cellaring time. — 17 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2004

After our discussion on the two kabi’s (see my notes on the 18’ Haart Ohligsberg Alte Reben kabi for more info), I asked SC what Prüm brings in terms of a signature… what’s typical of Prüm basically. His answer - sulphides. Hahahahaha. Couldn’t be truer. Took some time for all that to blow away, but once it did… Boah! Our WOTN.

Still so youthful (I’m sure all that sulphides helped). Citrus, peach, white flowers, crushed slate, herbs, and spices. Really filigreed and pure; bringing lots of juiciness in the mid-palate and finishing with an airy feel. Expectedly sweet but very balanced at this stage. So good.

Nose is mineral.

Palate is mineral. Solid fruit.

Feels a bit adolescent. I’d wait 3 years.

Egon Müller

Scharzhofberger Kabinett Riesling 2016

A somm-recommended bottle after being consulted on which vintage might be the most open of the Egon kabi’s, and right he was. The 16’ was singing! Very Egon with the notes cassis, salt/slate, and a touch of cream. Definitely sweeter and richer (less of a classic kabi) than the Haart Ohligsberg Alter Reben kabi, but still very energetic and quaffable. Plus, I can’t look pass how singular these wines are (see notes on the other mentioned wine on a little related rant). — 17 days ago

Very nice Pinot from the always interesting Enderle. Quite a lot of berry. Finish is nice with good acid. Almost a slight carbonic note but still tasty and versatile. — 11 days ago

Abts E de Riesling 2016

16' has proven to be a rather backward vintage at this stage, so pair that with what's usually the most linear of the Keller vineyards, and you've got a wine that would challenge even the most avid of Riesling fans. Expectedly grand in its weight and just overtly mineral, with the fruit almost completely disappearing into the background. And as always, smells like the vineyard - the herbs and topsoil. It's just pure rock energy here. May well outlive all of us. — 23 days ago
