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.

    Smokey terrior notes mix with cherry and forest floor in the nose. This “basic “ Pinot Noir was picked at a robust 95 Öchsle. On the palate there are notes of dried cranberry, pomegranate, and cherry. This selection is very, very impressive for a basic Pinot Noir, and shows how far Pinot Noir production has come in Germany in the past decade. Delicious 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 93+ POINTS - The 2013 Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Grosses Gewachs is very clear and subtle on the nose but rich and powerful on the palate, so quite sweet at the moment and less transparent and finesse-full than the Höllenpfad but dense, concentrated, piquant, powerful and persistent. It is expressive but still very young. 2016-2026.

    "Felsenturmchen" is a reference to the old fort on the vineyard.

    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.

    The 2015 Kreuznacher Krötenpfuhl Riesling Kabinett has a "cooler acidity" than the Kahlenberg, says Helmut Dönnhoff, so he considers it as the better vineyard to produce a fruity Riesling with more residual sugar. The wine has a clear and open nose of ripe apples along with some flinty aromas. On the palate, the wine is very clear and piquant, but also generous in its precise, elegant fruit. The finish has a certain intensity and minerality, and this will come out even clearer in two or more years.

    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 - 97 POINTS
    Picked in 2016 on January 18th, the 2015 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein is very clear and displays black bread, fresh lemon and even some flinty aromas on the nose. On the palate, this is a highly elegant, precise and piquant Riesling with tension, grip and concentration, but also finesse and beautiful roundness. This Eiswein is as razor-sharp as sensual and is a fascinating drinking experience. The aftertaste reveals raisin, chestnut cream and even some malty flavors. "The berries were so stable due to the high acidity, but the juice inside was slightly oxidized through the sensitive skins," says Helmut Donnhoff. "However, thanks to the yeasts, it ends up as a reductive wine." (This is produced in 375 milliliter bottles.)

    Helmut Donnhoff can be really proud. His son Cornelius, responsible for the wines in recent years, has bottled probably the best wine series in the history of the domaine. The Rieslings, most of all the Grossen Gewachse (for the first time a GG has been made from the Oberhäuser Brücke!) and the noble sweet wines, are immortal beauties that cause emotional well-being. Next to the Dellchen and Hermannshöhle GG, other highlights are the Brucke Eiswein, the BA and the two TBA's from the Hermannshohle, the former pressed on a Thursday, the latter--a 100-pointer--on Friday. The Hermannshöhle Spätlese is one one of the best wines I have tasted from this category this year and Dönnhoff fans shouldn't miss it.

    "In 2015, all of your vineyards were excellent. You could go where you want and the grapes were perfect at the right moment," said Helmut Dönnhoff, whereas Cornelius is busy pressing the first Pinot Blancs of the 2016 vintage coming in. It is October and the 2015s show brilliant today.

    "We had an early flowering in 2015, but then, in July and August, it was very dry and we feared problems with drought. In fact, the younger vines were suffering and we had to irrigate them to keep them alive. We reduced the yield down to zero with all our vines under three years. So, the thunderstorm rainfalls in summer were very welcome. The vineyards started breathing again. Since the nights were cool in August and September the grapes reduced their acidity levels very slowly and we did not face any problems with botrytis. When there was botrytis it was a perfect one."

    The only conflict of 2015 is independent from the vintage because it is an obligatory one: Helmut and Cornelius dispute about the right moment to start harvesting for three days every year. "It is deeply anchored in my soul to gamble, to keep the grapes on the vines as long as possible to reach the highest possible ripeness," Helmut explains with a smile, quoting his grandmother: "As long as there are leaves on the vines we don't harvest." But since the grapes are ripe at least a week earlier today than 10 or 20 years ago and Cornelius takes great care about the potential alcohol levels and the balance between sugar ripeness and physiological ripeness, the Dönnhoffs pick earlier than in former times. In 2015, the family started October 1st and finished October 31. "We could pick each vineyard at the best moment and the acidity levels remained pretty high."

    Donnhoff enjoys it to have his vineyards not only in one spot around Niederhausen and Oberhausen, but also in Norheim, Kreuznach and Roxheim. Closer to the Rhine, the vegetation period starts earlier than in Oberhausen. Thus, the harvest starts closer to the Rhine and then goes deeper into the Nahe valley until it ends often in der Oberhäuser Brücke, Donnhoff's vineyard for his world famous Eiswein.

    For winelovers it is a fascinating experience to learn Donnhoff's art of expressing the talents of each single vineyard. Often, only one style is connected to a certain vineyard whereas in his most important and best cru, the Hermannshöhle, several Rieslings are selected from dry to noble sweet. In 2015, the Hermannshohle shines through all its wines. The differences in taste are only based on different levels of ripeness.

    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+.

    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.

    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
