Storyboard of a Wine Evening

IMG_6223

We started with this very well made Rheingau Sekt Edition M by Stefan Breuer. Dry but still lots of Riesling fruit and a rather coarse but refreshing mousseux. More Sekt than Champagne in style. 86

Then a 2007 Monzinger Frühlingsplätzchen Spätlese Trocken: a very well known vineyard by the rather unknown Weber estate (at least to me).Fruity and juicy Nahe style with enough weight on the palate. This one was a little sweeter, but quite nice. 88

Nevertheless, the Austrian Loimer Terrassen Riesling still was another league. Weight on the palate, beautiful nose, fruity, nicely structured palate, ripe acidity yet a monolithic impression of balance and a beautiful length. 92

Unfortunately this Bürklin Wolf 2005 Altenburg PC was heavily corked, no luck again. Would have loved to try it.

We got back to the Nahe with Emrich Schönleber‘s 2006 Halenberg GG. Powerful and fruity. Lots of weight on the palate, seems a bit rougher than the Loimer, less elegant but at least as appealing. A young gun with another personality with some herbs here and there. 92

Finally we tried to save the best fort he end and it worked out. no cork! Leitz’ 2005 Berg Rottland Alte Reben trocken is a gigantic wine. It needs some time to build up, but then has it all. Peach and herbs nose, powerful attack on the palate with herbs and juicy fruit, then suddenly less weight but a tremendous finish which lasts forever. Develops in the glass to become more and more balanced, light and powerful at the same time. A true masterpiece. 95-97

  1. BerlinKitchen (guest) Said,

    Mensch Alex, tolle Weine! Vor 2 Jahren hatte ich zuletzt den 2002 “Berg Rottland”, grandioser Stoff und ungemein Botritis geprägt. Vielen Dank das Du schon vorverkostet hast, vom 05er habe ich auch noch ein paar Flaschen im Keller.

    Alles Gute,
    Martin

    REPLY:
    Martin, ich hätte auch nix dagegen, diese Weine öfter zu probieren ;=) Den 2002er Berg Rottland hab ich nur 1 Tag nach diesem auch probiert, siehe http://blindtasting.twoday.net/stories/5181351/ . Er hatte zwar etwas Honig in der Nase, aber starke Botrytis hab ich nicht in Erinnerung komischerweise. Aber beim Leitz blickt man bei den Etiketten manchmal nicht durch, vielleicht lag’s daran?
    Gruß,
    Alex
