Martin Müllen

Trarbacher Huhnerberg Auslese Riesling * 2014

Nose is like a dessert wine with some age. Crazy Powerful peach with a hint of petrol.

Palate is huge peach and aged Riesling. Hugely juicy. Just huge. But not blowsy. Mind bogglingly intense.

This is at least 3 years too young to drink. More likely 5. Maybe more. You can feel the density struggling to express itself. This is going to be a crazy life altering wine when it’s ready to drink. It could be a 10... hard to tell.

Finish is perfect intense dried apricot. Actually Better than any dried apricot. Some apricot pit.

Yah. Huhnberberg is one of the great vineyards on earth.

If you must drink this now decant for 2 hours at least.

Bought from fass selections.

Tasted blind. Deep gold color. Obviously old German wine just from the nose (and knowing who provided it). Notes of apricot, petrol, some crushed stone. Fruit is very ripe. Powerful juice. — 5 days ago

Half bottle. Really enjoyed this after dinner. Crisp with pear flavor throughout, even a hint of peach. Sweet but refined. Highly dependent on food/dessert pairing. — 4 days ago

First ever young wine from this terrific and overlooked site. Stunning nose. Huge slate and florals. Green apples galore. Incredibly fragrant. Wow. Lemon. But much more intense lime and lime rock candy. Confectionary and so so good. Huge palate with tons of dry extract and rocks. Terrific inner mouth aromas, with grandiose depth and awesome sap and structure. Sweet but also finishes somewhat salty. Terrific rock candy impression on the palate. Balanced and so so pure. Such a baby but just superb. As this opens up it gains tremendous elegance and refinement and the finish gets even more slatey. — 5 days ago

Trarbacher Huhnerberg Spätlese Riesling 2015

On night one, this was just pure pure fruit, but on night 2, more complexity is showing. The fruit is still remarkably intense and pure, but there is some beautiful slate on the nose to augment the ripe apple, peach, and fresh squeezed ripe lemon. The concentration of fruit in the mouth is hard to believe, but it’s not heavy. Rather, there is intense but submerged acidity and a prickle of minerality as well. An emerging hint of honeyed botrytis as well. This is going to last and improve for many many years. — 11 days ago

Love the Müllen stuff, for me, it's been a stellar performer day 2+, that is, if we can get a bottle to last more than 2 nights!

Not overly sweet. Lots of caramel, ripe pineapple and mango. Hints of mocca. Lacks a bit of acids to make it perfect. Riesling ripening tones. — 6 days ago

I love this vintage in the Mosel. Classic yet overlooked for the more slutty 05’s and 03’s. Nose has some aged character but starts off restrained with some lemon, slate and hints of mushroom. Some honey and along with a foie gras savoriness as well. What a palate. Honeyed, rich, savory and elegant with terrific freshness. Opens up on the nose with green tea and some lavender. Really rich and decadent with a icing on the cake like texture. So pure, deep and sweet with such a dramatic palate presence. Awesome. — 5 days ago

Vintage 2016 | I smell steely minerals, passion fruit, ananas, Turkish delight, a hint of cocos. Vivid expression, beautiful struggle between sweet and acids that shout: we are here too! This Riesling wine is just starting to come together and will develop further in the next decade. Very sympathetic and reliable winegrower. | paired with shrimps, broccoli and Chinese champignons. — 2 days ago
