Selbach-Oster

Zeltinger Schlossberg Spätlese Trocken Riesling 2013

Alive and well taking a long break from the life of regularly studying/frequent wine tasting... it almost doesn't matter who makes wine in this vineyard, it's going to be exceptional — 16 hours ago

Später-Veit

No. 1 Spätburgunder 2010

Lyle Fass
9.3

Stunning perfume. Spice, mid season cherries, chestnut, wood shavings, leafiness, slate, sick complex nose. Palate is inimitably juicy and has tremendous sap, grip and structure. As par the course for these top cuvees from SV. No rush and needs 2 hour decant. — 10 days ago

Still so young that it’s almost a shame to drink now...almost. Incredible combination of power and feather-lightness — 5 days ago

Caspari - Kappel

Ellergrub Alte Reben Feinherb Riesling 2012

Lyle Fass
9.2

Been a long time since I’ve rocked this bottle. Gorgeous nose. Classic Ellegrub aromas. Cooling blue fruits. Very mineral. Confectionary cotton candy as well. Really terrific. Palate is big, insanely refreshing and so balanced, fresh and pure. Apricot and vineyard peach are the fruit highlights and it finishes salty and slatey. No rush. — 16 days ago

Brauneberger Juffer Auslese Riesling 1994

Ridiculously complex nose. Crystallized ginger, honey, earth, beeswax, some sort of floral perfume, ethereally light in the mouth. Great balancing acidity. Wonderful long finish. — 2 days ago

Thomas Haag Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2013

9.3

One of the best Kabinett wines in recent memory. Great structure and an airy fruit profile. Wild acidity, so better wait at least another five years. — 6 days ago

Flaschengärung Handgerüttelt Ayl Saar Brût Riesling

Blind tasting tonight. Wonderful Riesling sparkler. Lots of citrus, acidity and had still white characteristics with bubbles, which was unique and unexpected. — 11 days ago

Karthäuserhof

Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg 'S' Auslese Trocken Riesling 2007

Wow. Mesmerizing nose. Aged Riesling. Maybe a touch of honey. Lemon oil and lemon windex on the palate. Dense. Crackling minerality. Almost no fruit. Amazing internal aromatics. Almost savory. Long. Very few wines like this. — 9 days ago

Peach and citrus fruits, and a boatload of minerals, this grand wine talks to your senses. Hinting at high end Burgundy yet remains all Mosel. Very HL. From magnum. — 6 days ago

Mönchhof Robert Eymael

Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett Riesling 2016

Fruit salad nose overload. Crisp in the mouth, with nice acids and an underlay of slate. Just what the doc ordered on a hot humid evening. — 5 days ago
