GERMANY

German wine is primarily produced in the west of Germany, along the river Rhine and its tributaries, with the oldest plantations going back to the Roman era. Approximately 60 percent of the German wine production is situated in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where 6 of the 13 regions (Anbaugebiete) are situated. Germany as the eighth largest wine-producing country in the world. White wine accounts for almost two thirds of the total production. Among enthusiasts, Germany's reputation is primarily based on wines made from the Riesling grape variety, which at its best is used for aromatic, fruity and elegant white wines that range from very crisp and dry to well-balanced, sweet and of enormous aromatic concentration.

    MOSEL FINE WINES - 92 POINTS This offers a very fresh nose of mint, lead pencil, white flowers, white peach, grapefruit and smoke. The wine dances on the tongue with subtle flavors of fruits interplaying with slate and white peach. The residual sugar is well integrated into some nice, elegant and zesty acidity, giving the wine great inner harmony. This juicy wine is a superb off-dry Riesling! Now-2030

    In the small town of Schweigen, Becker's vineyards straddle the French border… about 70% of this wine is grown in France, the other 30% on the German side. The soils consist of limestone covered in a clay/loam mix. The grapes are all destemmed and fermented in open tanks. The final blend is aged in large oak casks and 10% smaller barriques, all neutral oak. This is an incredibly drinkable, lovely Pinot with sweet fruit married to exceptional minerality. Notes of dried cranberry, pomegranate and light cherry entice the palate. Year after year, Becker's basic cuvee achieves the holy grail of Pinot: a light body belied by delicious flavor. Great on its own, but also compliments heavier seafood, poultry, and fine cuts of beef and game.

    JANCIS ROBINSON - The Falkenlay has to be my favourite of the estate’s wines, as it relies less on a strong performance of individual constituents, but shines through great harmony and complexity. On the nose the fruit is complemented by a delicate fragrance of herbs. The palate exhibits flavours of apricot, peach and melon, ably supported by a firm, but well-integrated acidity. Great concentration and length bear much promise. 18.5 (out of 20).

    WINE ADVOCATE - 94 POINTS - The 2015 Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Auslese was selected shortly before the Spätlese and is a selection of super ripe and the rarely botrytis grapes. The wine has a super ripe and warm fruit bouquet with some spicy and flinty aromas. On the palate, this is a piquant and generous Riesling with clear definition and lingering complexity and salinity. It has very good grip. (The wine is also available in 375 milliliter bottles for $45 and 1500 milliliter bottles for $180.)

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 96 POINTS - The 2015 Brücke Gold Kap Auslese is another absolutely beautiful wine in the making, but interestingly, at the time of my visit, the nose was fairly closed and reticent and the palate was amazingly expressive. The nose offers up a reserved, but very pure blend of pear, white cherry, apple, blossoms, wild yeasts, lovely minerality and an esthery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is fullish, clean and very racy, with a superb core, seamless balance, electric acidity and stunning length and grip on the nascently complex and vibrant finish. This was made from a combination of thirty percent botrytized bunches and the remainder golden berries or gently shriveled grapes from Passerillage. I love the combination of filigree and lift on the backend here- this will be a legendary Auslese down the road. 2021-2075. 96.

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 94 POINTS - "The 2015 Hermannshöhle Goldkapsel Auslese is also a stunning wine in the making, but at least at this early stage, it does not seem to have quite the same completeness of its Brücke counterpart. The bouquet is pure, refined and very vibrant in its blend of apple, white cherry, citrus zest, white flowers and beautiful minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, racy and very classy in profile, with a fine core, exceptional complexity in the making, racy acids and laser-like focus on the long, refined and classic finish. Dynamite wine. 2021-2075. 94."

    WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2015 Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Auslese is lovely, clear and flinty on the nose and, like the Spätlese, is characterized by its noble aristocracy, but also lemony freshness and great purity. There seems to be more crushed stones than grapes in this wine, which reflects a lot of the fastidious selection and the healthy condition of the processed grapes. On the palate, this is a generous and concentrated, but pure, piquant and buoyant Auslese of great expression and finesse. This vibrating wine is dancing over the palate, leaving loads of minerals and salts, which makes this a dangerous drug. The finish is piquant and salty--you simply can't stop drinking and adoring it. There is so much grip, tension and finesse here. The wine is also available in 375 milliliter bottles ($50) and 1500 milliliter bottles ($190)."

    WINE ADVOCATE - 92+ POINTS The 2015 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese is clear, fresh and coolish, almost reductive on the very precise nose. This is a mouth-filling Spätlese that is round and generous on the palate, with a lush fruit texture and piquant acidity. It has a creamier texture and fine, well-integrated acidity that lacks a certain sharpness in the finish though. This is a pretty, powerful and complex Spätlese with grip and tension as well.

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 95+ POINTS The 2015 Brucke Spatlese is a stunning young wine and it is extremely floral in personality this year. The gorgeous bouquet delivers a great blend of pear, white cherries, wild yeasts, orange blossoms and a lovely potpourri of gentle Brücke spice tones. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, filigreed and beautifully complex, with great cut and grip, laser-like focus and a very, very long, electric finish that closes with a nice note of orange peel in reserve. This is fully ten grams per liter of acidity, buffered by somewhere around seventy grams per liter of residual sugar. It is a brilliant wine that should age for a very, very long time. 2022-2055. 95+.

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 95+ POINTS
    The 2015 Hermannshohle Spatlese is every bit as stunning as the Brücke, but it is not quite as concentrated at the core and shows a more delicate personality out of the blocks. The glorious bouquet soars from the glass in a mélange of pear, white cherry, citrus peel, a superb base of slate minerality, bee pollen, white flowers and gentle, wild yeasts overtones. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and very filigreed, with great focus, seamless balance and truly stunning elegance and refinement already in evidence right out of the blocks. The finish is very, very long, nascently complex and oh, so promising. It will be very interesting to follow these last two Spätlesen over the course of the unfolding decades and see if they start to dovetail a bit stylistically as the years go by. Another brilliant wine! 2022-2060+. 95+.

  • DR HERMANN 2015 URZIGER WURZGARTEN RIESLING ALTE REBEN (STEINMETZ UND HERMANN)

    Item #: 372056
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - The 2015 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Alte Reben (Steinmetz und Hermann) is a co-produc...
    WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - The 2015 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Alte Reben (Steinmetz und Hermann) is a co-production from Stefan Steinmetz and Christian Hermann. The latter owns the vineyard that was cultivated and harvested by both, whereas the wine was fermented and aged in the Steinmetz cellar. The 2015 opens with a very clear, intense, elegant, perfectly ripe and flinty Riesling bouquet. On the palate, this is a perfectly ripe and lush though highly finessed and elegant Riesling in great balance. The finish is very aromatic, fine and crystalline, a lovely mix of salts and fruits. Gorgeous!
    The golden-yellow grapes for this Wurzgarten were harvested at the end of October with 100 Oechsle in the top red slate parcels with 80- to 100-year-old, ungrafted vines. The wine fermented in a stainless steel vat down to 12% alcohol and 12 grams of residual sugar per liter. Total production: 200 cases and a few magnums and double magnums.

    Stefan Steinmetz, who cultivates roughly 12 hectares of top vineyards between Mulheim and Neumagen, was very happy about his 2015s. The quantities were very good and so were the qualities. It was an easy-going vintage with less pressure to select than in 2014 and with much less pressure than in 2016 when the sun burnt many grapes and did not leave much grapes to harvest for the basic qualities. The 2015 grapes, however, were picked in perfect condition—fully ripe and healthy—which serves Steinmetz's favored dry style.

    MOSEL FINE WINES - 93 POINTS This joint project between Stefan Steinmetz (Weingut Günther Steinmetz, Brauneberg) and Christian Hermann (Weingut Dr. Hermann, Erden) was made using prime grapes from old vines from Christian Hermann situated in the red volcanic part the Ürziger Würzgarten and vinified and aged with the craftsmanship of Stefan Steinmetz in his cellar in Brauneberg. This debut vintage shows a slightly reductive yet hugely complex and refined bouquet of white orchard fruits, white flowers, bergamot and cardamom as well as a touch of litchi with airing. The wine seems to glide on the palate with a most airy and quite sensational finesse and yet there is good presence and intensity. The finish is all about refinement with smooth and delicate white fruits. The wine finishes delicately off-dry, with the great balance of old Naturrein wines from the pre-1971 period. And leaves an intensely smoky, spicy and gorgeously persistent feel in the after-taste. This tour de force of finesse and elegance is a great success! 2018-2030

    TASTING NOTES: This vibrant, racy dessert wine conjures flavors of densely packed pear, apple and guava, with an intense, nervy edge in the aroma. It is luscious, silky and juicy on the palate, with bright acidity giving it a crisp, dynamic finish.

    From the Producer:
    Eiswein ("ice wine") is another of nature's rare and wonderful gifts in our area. We hold aside certain plots of vines, hoping for a deep enough freeze(minimum 8°C, or 17°F) to harvest frozen grapes. These grapes are picked in the wee hours of the morning and pressed while they are still frozen, to slowly squeeze out a few drops of precious nectar, leaving the water behind as ice. The result is a vibrant, racy dessert wine that is strikingly different from the rounder, more honeyed style of the wines concentrated by botrytis.

    This estate-grown Dr. Loosen Riesling Eiswein comes from special parcels in Bernkastel and Wehlen that we hold aside every year, hoping that it will freeze before the grapes fall victim to overripeness or rot - or get eaten by the wild boars! The frozen grapes for this particular bottling came primarily from a premier cru site called Bernkasteler Matheisbildchen, which is about halfway up the steep slope behind the Dr. Loosen estate house. The higher elevation makes this a cooler site, with greater potential for Eiswein.

    This estate-grown Riesling Kabinett showcases the mineral-driven style of the steep, blue slate vineyards in the middle Mosel. It comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen, where the soil is pure blue slate. It is bright and vibrant with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical of this terroir. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood and spicy Asian cuisine.

    From John Gilman...I learned on this trip that the superb estate Riesling from Weingut Egon Müller includes a sizable chunk of Saarburger Rausch in its blend, as the estate has a fine parcel in this vineyard that they choose not to bottle on its own. While part of my heart yearns to taste a Rausch bottling from Egon Müller, the realization that a significant percentage of the blend of this fine villages level bottling is from such a grand cru vineyard makes this wine even more attractive.

    Müller's pale-colored 2014 Scharzhof #1 displays lovely ripe fruit flavors. Full-flavored, juicy and piquant on the palate, provided with typical Saar acidity, this is a lush and well focused Riesling with vivid acidity and good substance. Impressively good. - Stephan Reinhardt

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 97 POINTS The 2015 Auslese from the Scharzhofberg vineyard that I had the pleasure to taste from Egon Müller is utterly brilliant. The bouquet offers up a very, very pure and discreetly glazed bouquet of white cherries, pear, bee pollen, a touch of orange zest, gentle slate undertow and a pungent topnote of cherry blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and stunningly pure, with a creamy core, ripe, juicy acids and magical length and grip on the nascently complex and absolutely electric finish. This is a breathtakingly magical wine in the making, and keep in mind, this is only the tip of the Auslesen iceberg at Weingut Müller! 2025- 2100. 97.

    El Ixsir (Elixir) is the top wine produced by the Ixsir winery located just outside Batroun, Lebanon. The excellent 2011 is composed of 55% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. On the nose you find aromas of blackberries and red fruits and a hint of woody spice. On the palate silky, lush fruit flavors are balanced with good structure and a long finish. Drinking very well now, this wine should age until at least 2020. The Wine Enthusiast gave this 91 points praising the black cherry aromas on the nose and flavors of cherry, cassis and anisette.

Aged for 24 months in French oak barrels, this wine boasts a finish that is powerful, sustained, and balanced."

    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - The 2015 Riesling Monzinger Halenberg GG offers a very deep, cool and complex bouquet with smoky, herbal and lemony flavors. Full-bodied, rich and intense on the palate, this is a dense, well concentrated and aromatic Halenberg with a tightly woven mineral structure, a long and intense finish with melting stones and lingering salinity. The Halenberg does not have the filigreed and finessed nature of the corresponding Frühlingsplatzchen, but it has more power, concentration and a rather male character. This wine will need some years to show its nature at its best. - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate.

    JAMESSUCKLING.COM 96 POINTS A glittering jewel! Slight yeasty funk at first, then a wonderfully ripe peachy aroma opens up. A concentrated and powerful wine without any hint of heaviness.

    JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 89+ POINTS The fruit for the 2015 Estate Riesling Trocken hails seventy percent from the two superb grand crus of Halenberg and Fruhlingsplatzchen, with the other thirty percent coming from neighboring vineyards owned by the Schonleber family. The wine is 11.5 percent alcohol this year and carries 8.8 grams per liter of acidity in an effortless fashion. The fine nose wafts from the glass in a blend of pink grapefruit, tangerine, fine minerality, a touch of lilacs and a bit of petrol in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and nicely filigreed, with a good core, bright acids and a long, focused finish that closes with promising nascent complexity and lovey grip. This is very good indeed. 2016-2035+.

    The 2015 Riesling Trocken opens with a clear, ripe, fascinating and aromatic stone fruit aroma along with remarkably spicy, flinty and herbal flavors. Bottled with 11.5% alcohol, this is a rather light but intensely aromatic and salty Riesling with a charming roundness and stimulating piquancy. It is very enjoyable already today.

Most of their Pinot comes from two sites: one with 25-45 year-old vines planted in colored sandstone (Buntsandstein), and one other miniscule plot (0.045 ha total) from four tiny terraces, home to 60-year-old vines (the oldest in the region) planted in shell imestone (Muschelkalk). All work in the vineyard is done by hand, yields are low, and vineyard work is organic/biodynamic. Walking throught the vineyard, it is easy to see where the Enderle & Moll plots begin and end, so clear is the vitality of their vines and soil. Sven and Florian are hands-off in the cellar and it shows in the wines. Parcels are vinified separately, with one-third whole clusters. Grapes are crushed in an old wooden basket press and then go into seconhand Burgundian barrels (mostly from Domaine Dujac). Bottling, like everything else, is done by hand, and there is no fining or filtration. Because they don't care for the quality criteria for Pinots in Baden, theyve decided to declassify their Pinot Noir as a Tafelwein, which legally disallows from putting vineyard names on the label. Florian thinks it foolish to automatically equate higher ripeness levels with better quality and that doing so often leads to overripe, high-alcohol wines with lots of extract and a shortage of acidity and delicacy. These are delicious Pinots of enormous integrity, made with undeniable passion and point of view. Sven Enderle also has the best facial hair in the wine business (we could not leave that out). Silly-limited production.

    WINE & SPIRITS - 91 POINTS
    From the brown soils of the Brauneberger vineyard, this is firm, fresh and ripe, rich in peachy fruit with a blush of mango. It feels lush yet lively, the acidity holding tension in the fruit, giving the wine the muscle to match a roasted pork shoulder.
