Senior Faß 6 Ayler Riesling 2020

Popped and poured; enjoyed over three days. Consistent across the three days but seemed to be a little more open on Day 3. No formal notes. Loads of character in this wine. Star fruit, pear, lemon, gardenias, petrol and a massive amount of minerals: rocks and ferrous material. Absolutely sizzling with youthful energy. Long on the finish and wonderful acid. I want more. — 9 days ago

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.

9.8

Wow. Martin’s signature wine in my opinion. Huge, complex and serene nose. So elegant and expansive. Airy, layered and ethereal. Stunning. 9.8 nose. Just has that extra. Confectionery. Grapefruit. Apricot. Wow. Smells like Riesling grown in chevalier montrachet. One of the most beautiful noses on a young Müllen ever. Genius. It’s so lifted, layered, complex and ethereal. Unreal minerality. Wow that palate is about as pure, elegant and lithely structured as one can imagine. Such structure on the mid and the finish. Amazing concentration and density. Round and full of citrus pith, grapefruit, apricot and peach skin and minor peach flesh. Finish keeps going and going. Astonishing length. Wow. This will be better in 10 years.

On day 2 this is so refined and so brilliant. One of the best TH Sp Trockens ever. The complexity and completeness is just unreal. 9.7 to 9.8 overnight and one of the wines of the vintage.

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.

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

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

Peter Lauer

Réserve Sekt Riesling 1992

Nose has moist brioche, browning yellow apple peel, honey, dried lemon zest, green herbs and seashells.

Palate has bruised yellow apple, lemon peel, nectarine, green apple peel, faint tangerine with great acidity and fleeting minerality.

Fine bubbles, plenty of pressure under the cork. A pleasure for all the senses.
This is the zero-dosage (nature) version produced for the 1992 vintage.

Trarbacher Hühnerberg Trocken Spätlese Mosel Riesling 2020

9.5

Huge and expansive nose. Ripe apricot and peach and very confectionary. Grapefruit, citrus, tangerine, tangelo and so much more. An amalgam of stunning fruit on a mineral background. Hugely expressive minerality and just a stunningly mineral nose. Smells like a rock quarry. Awesome. The nose is so deep. Kaleidoscopic and fractal like. Palate is young and tangy with enormous structure but it’s delicate and a little bit hidden. Not that integrated at all but all the parts are there. Incredible fruit sapidity on the finish. Huge mineral/citrus inner mouth aromas. Juicy and mineral but man is this backwards. The finish is super long and the wine is crazy concentrated but massively backwards. I’ll be back. — 17 days ago
