Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling 2007

Lyle Fass

Have not had in 5 years. Young as ever. Eternal. Smells like a 17 or 16. Super slate, Granny Smith apple flesh, woodlands, pine, apple skins, so lean and classic. The slate aromatic expression is wonderful. Awesome texture like icing on a cake and superb balance and freshness. What a finish. The unsung Prüm. Really compelling wine. Best showing ever. Such a huge core of fruit and mineral and the finish! This will last 25+ more year and this is my last bottle. What a great bottle. This is last of 4. I tasted this wine with Bert Selbach at the estate and was floored. Now the estate is sold and doesn’t exist anymore and Bert is retired. He was a great winemaker and if you ever find any of his stuff buy it. His Himmelreich and Domprobst stuff is top class and with age they transform . — 7 hours ago

Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling 2018

I love 2018 in the Mosel. If you nailed it it’s as good as 15. If you didn’t, well there’s always 19. Nose is quiet and closed. Some slate, honey, wild mint and hints of tangerine and peach flesh. Hint of vulcanized rubber. Palate is dynamite. Good acidity but so complex and deep. The depth here is more than the 15. A fresh, tangy honeyed richness just takes over the palate. It’s nimble and racey as well. What a mouthfeel and that icing on the cake texture. So delicious and awesome. — 3 days ago

Clean Slate

Mosel Riesling 2020

Pale white, excellent clarity. Floral, pineapple notes in nose, good acidity, peach, lemon and lemon peel flavors with bright mineral finish. Simple but well made, and delightfully dry. Paired well with sweet onion and roasted potato focaccia with a side of Chinese cucumber salad with sesame seeds, black vinegar and fresh green onions and quick wok-fried raw peanuts. It’s springtime, folks! And after 24 hours, the peach and lime flavors amp up in intensity and expressive. Open in advance a bit. — 7 days ago

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Spätlese Riesling 2019


Served with the Vinloq system
👃Apples, apricots, peach, grapefruit and slate
👅Peach, apple, and florals. Juicy but creamy. Full midpalate so typical of 2019 German rieslings. The sweet end of spatlese. Delicious

Slow Decanted the remaining wine in my fridge

👃Apple, pear, peach but now oyster shell and briny, smoky musk. Jasmine tea
👅Light sweet nectar on the tongue with floral tea. Good acidity. The finish is dry and persistent. Enough salt to keep me thirsty

Elegant and light-footed but never thin. Drinking great. This will age well as expected of wines made from this historic vineyard. (There have been grapes grown in the Abtsberg vineyard for over 1,000 years)

Unterstenberg Faß 12 Riesling Grosse Lage 2017

Very nice Riesling from the reliably delicious and interesting Peter Lauer. But honestly slightly disappointing relative to what I was hoping for. Doesn’t quite have the acid-driven precision and clarity as some of the other bottlings I’ve had from him. Still nice, obviously. — 6 hours ago

17’s can be low in acid.

Hyland Vineyard Riesling 2017

Been a while delectable family. Flu then covid and only 3 wines in that period. Well I am back and smell and taste are as they were before all of this. Nose has peach skin, some ripe peach flesh but not too ripe, confectionary aromas. Loads of wet stones and pulverized shale. Super aromatic. Like a cross between Pfalz/Alsace. Palate is lean and precise. Really clean, balanced and so pure. Fiercely mineral. Lovely peach flesh, skin and sap on the very long finish. Really juicy and engaging. Delicious! — 12 days ago

Cuvée Frédéric Emile 375eme Anniversaire Alsace Riesling 2001

always a great bottle, it’s nearly the equal of Clos Ste Hune in this vintage. Their 375th anniversary bottling, it’s spectacular. Nose is intense and layered apricot and citrus, echoing on the palate with classy fruit driven deeply into palate and memory by the well integrated acidity. The wine is thick yet lithe, finishes quite long and clean. Nowhere near a downhill ride, I think it will hold this peak for a very long time. — 3 days ago

Trarbacher Hühnerberg Spätlese trocken Riesling * 2018

This is reminding me of another dimension of what dry Riesling can be. It’s a beast; wafting with complex apricot, pome and tropical sour fruit notes, clove, spice, smoke, and a mineral and floral suite. In the mouth it’s viscous, dry, with a ton of dry extract and powdered granite. Mouth tingling minerality and sour candy finish. Hefty. Wall of flavor and hardly needs to be chilled. Very impressive.

Has integrated beautifully overnight. Though I wouldn’t begrudge it a little more acid, the power now presents elegantly and the mineral spice has mellowed nicely. 9.5 now.

Let it get better over 2-3-4-5 days it will.

Sekt Brut Riesling 2018

Love this crisp bouquet, a cold night, still. The stars pristine sharp dots draping the sky. Mineral driven. Apples.

Bracing. Sharp. Energetic acidity with legs, carrying a savory quality through the mid.

Zip and chew. Something to sip and think.

Sekt Extra Brut Riesling

Big soapy bubbles, high acid, zero yeasty/bready notes. Tropical fruit and slate. Uncomplicated but easy to enjoy. Bottle was gone in a flash. Another value from Von Winning. — 6 days ago
