2016 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling Mosel

93 points Vinous: "Cheesy fermentative overtones give way to a site-typical amalgam of fresh apple garlanded in honeysuckle and heliotrope. This is another of those Prüm Kabinetts that is watery in a positive sense of that word, combining watercolor-like transparency and wash of flavor with delicacy and refreshment. As with the corresponding Graacher, the finishing sense of wet stone and floral perfume is striking, and here a mouthwatering hint of salinity adds significantly to the appeal. (DS)" (1/2018) Jancis Robinson: "17+ points. More fruit and weight than their Graacher Himmelreich, wit ...Read More »

2015 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling Green Capsule Mosel

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Kabinett (Green Capsule) displays an intense and concentrated, slightly yeasty bouquet with perfectly ripe stone fruit aromas. Lush and round on the palate but then pure, finessed and very salty, this is another fascinating Kabinett with a lot of salt and mineral tension in the finish. This wine is tight and generous at the same time, and its seductive fruit surely has majority appeal. Good aging potential. (SR)" (4/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Suggestions of salted peanut and oregano intriguingly inflect the scents and juicy mouthful of f ...Read More »

2015 Markus Molitor Ockfener Bockstein Kabinett Riesling Green Capsule Mosel

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Molitor's 2015 Riesling Ockfener Bockstein Kabinett (Green Capsule) is a super clear and aromatic, highly finessed and precise Saar Riesling with piquant acidity and a long, stimulatingly salty and grippy finish with lots of tension and finesse. Its lychee bouquet reminds me of fine Gewurztraminers, but the piquant finish is clearly Saar and even Bockstein. A gorgeous Riesling classic with great precision! (SR)" (4/2017) 91 points James Suckling: "Beautiful ripe, white fruits and some flowers character. Very clean and crisp with a balance that will strike many wine drinkers as dry e ...Read More »

2016 Julian Haart "1,000L" Riesling Mosel (Previously $20)

Importer's Notes: "Julian Haart apprenticed with Egon Müller and Klaus Peter Keller. That’s like learning to draw under da Vinci and Picasso." He also makes wines in collaboration with AJ Adam (another of the Mosel's up and coming stars). The 1000L is exactly as it sounds, a bottling of a single 1000 liter "Fuder" or large oak vat. This wine is basically the de-classified stuff from Julian's higher tier including holdings in Ohligsberg, Goldtröpfchen, Schuberstlay "Grand Cru" sites. The wine is naturally fermented in Fuder and is just fractionally off-dr... Read More »

2015 Markus Molitor Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese Riesling Gold Capsule (Medium) Mosel

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese (Golden Capsule) opens with a very clear and aromatic white stone fruit aroma intermixed with clear and smoky aromas. Sweet, lush and intense, this is a concentrated, already densely textured Spätlese with a firm mineral grip and tension that gives this 2015 unreal aging potential and great complexity. Readers should cellar this wine for at least 15- 20 years since there are so many more delicate Rieslings to buy in the category. Molitor’s Würzgarten, though, will still be young in 30 or 40 years, and that’s ...Read More »

2016 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling Mosel

92 points Vinous: "Scents and juicy generosity of mint-tinged and honeysuckle-garlanded fresh apple and black currant are allied to a polished, glossy, buoyant palate presence, leading to a lusciously sustained, delicate finish tinged with crystalline stony inflections. The sweetness here is totally supportive and entirely discreet. This is one of those Kabinetts one seems to inhale in the finish, with floral perfume and wet stone prominent, and only sheer refreshment reminds you of its fluid nature.

2012 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling Mosel

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe and rich, this irresistibly fruity spätlese is concentrated with peach marmalade, guava and grapefruit flavors, but braced by a streak of lemon-lime acidity and a delicate spritz that tickles the palate. Satisfying and juicy, it finishes long with a hint of grapefruit-pith astringency. —A.I." (2/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Piercing blackcurrant leaf aromas. Seems quite full for a Spätlese. Almost Auslese today, but Katharina Prüm says it has just opened out and was very shy. 17/20 points."

2015 Zilliken Estate Riesling Mosel

2015 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese Mosel

Jancis Robinson: "Almonds on the (rather intense) nose. Extremely tense and tight. Marked acidity and juiciness. Needs quite a bit of time to open out I suspect. (JR)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: Just upstream from the famed Wehlener Sonnenuhr is the Graacher Himmelreich. With deeper, richer soils, this site is a little less steep and its southwest exposure ensures the wines from this site always have a racy and juicy acid background that really make the wines sing. Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm was founded in 1911 by Johann Josef Prüm. Today it is owned and managed by Dr. Manfred Prüm and his daugh... Read More »

2015 Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese Riesling Green Capsule Mosel

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese (Green Capsule) is one of the most reductive wines that I tasted at Weingut MM in February 2017. The wine opens pure, flinty and with yeasty aromas whereas any fruit flavors were still closed and rather vegetal (without being green or unripe of course). On the palate, this is a full-bodied, very intense and aromatic Badstube with remarkable complexity and great elegance. The finish is tight and salty but still shows remarkable finesse and purity. Readers should cellar this wine for several years (5 to 10, ...Read More »

2016 Mönchhof Estate Riesling Mosel

Vinous: "Sourced from Ürziger Würzgarten, Erdener Treppchen and Erdener Herrenberg, this high-volume estate calling card leads with scents of bruised apple skin and wet stone. The palate brims with fresh apple, its juiciness and levity (at just 9% alcohol) complemented by textural gloss. A refreshingly sustained, supportively sweet finish is transparent to a wet stone undertone. (DS)" (1/2018)

Hildt Elbling Sekt (Flaschengärung) (Biodynamic)

Notes from Importer Vom Boden: "You’ve probably never heard of the 'Upper Mosel.' I really hadn’t either. I mean, I knew it was there. I just didn’t know what was there. As it turns out, what is there has nothing to do with everything we’ve ever been taught about the Mosel. In other words, the Upper Mosel has nothing to do with Riesling and nothing to do with slate. Instead, we find limestone. The Upper Mosel in fact represents the beginning of the Paris Basin, the geological reality that informs places like Chablis and Sancerre. Instead of Riesling, in ...

2015 Reinhold Haart Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett Mosel

91 points Vinous: "Fresh apple, grapefruit and lemon deliver invigoration on the nose, not to mention on a buoyant, tangy palate that manages somehow to feature both tart, crisp edges and subtle creaminess. This finishes with the remarkable balance of which its genre is so famously capable, its sweetness solely supportive, even though on paper it looks excessive. And the sense of transparency to alkaline, saline and crystalline stony impingements perfectly complements the wine’s alcoholic levity. (DS)" (6/2017)

2015 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling Gold Capsule Mosel

96-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese (Golden Capsule) displays the herbal bouquet of the Kabinett but is certainly more deep, concentrated and complex. The wine has great finesse on the palate, and its crystalline acidity and lingering salinity carry the perfectly ripe and lush fruit to a long, vibrating and mouth-watering finish. This Spätlese is highly finessed and complex and--along with the 2015 Scharzhofberger--probably the finest Spätlese I have tasted from the vintage. (SR)" (4/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "A big mouthful of cooked peach with a citrus freshness. ...Read More »

2015 Knebel Riesling Trocken Mosel Terraces

Importer's Notes: "The 2015 is all from the Mosel Terraces and the village of Winningen and is a classic Knebel wine at its core. Planted on Devonian slate. The wine shows red apple, grapefruit, spice and a leesy chewiness. " From an area that boasts some of the steepest, most precarious vineyards in the world! This is liquid slate...so full of minerals and savory, saline characters. Pretty delicious stuff! (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Germany Wine Buyer)

2015 Weingut Franzen Neefer Frauenberg "GG" Riesling Mosel

Importer's Notes: "This Grosses Gewachs comes from Franzen's oldest vines in the Frauenberg (60-90 years-old). All of Franzen's wines take a long time to ferment, and the 2015 took over year to complete alcoholic fermentation. It was picked in early November, 2015. This GG has flavors of golden apples, pears and spice and the palate is salty, leesy and long."

2016 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Gold Capsule Riesling Mosel

92 points Vinous: "Heady scents of ripe honeydew melon, muskmelon and quince betray enhanced ripeness and a hint of botrytis vis-à-vis the corresponding 'regular' Auslese, as does a hint of caramel that emerges on the creamy, lusciously fruited palate. There is a trade-off here in that one misses the floral and brightly fresh-fruited dimensions that characterize most of this Prüm collection. A hint of pineapple serves for some finishing tang, but presents a syrupy impression on this bottling’s impressively persistent finish.

2013 Vollenweider Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spätlese Mosel (Elsewhere $40)

93 points Vinous: "Crisp aromas of passion fruit, nut oils and cinnamon. Rich, sleek and invigorating, with creamy tropical fruit flavors remaining light and ethereal. Well-balanced, elegant and long on the aftertaste. While this may not have the depth of the two Ausleses, it shows a purity and balance that I far prefer. This is certainly one of the finest Spätleses of the vintage."

2016 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Kabinett Riesling Saar

93 points James Suckling: "Quite exotic on the nose, but without any hint of heaviness. Sensational balance of fruit, minerals, and super-elegant acidity make this a near-perfect example of this category. Pristine finish that makes you want more now, but this has a couple of decades of aging potential!" K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Occasionally we are presented with a wine of such splendid kabinett beauty that objective and impartial are hard to maintain. This is one such wines.

2016 A.J. Adam Spätburgunder Rosé Mosel

Importer's Notes: "Sure we’d taste it. And then, presumably, forget it. But no; the first impression was, "This is really good." Really good I’ll have you know. It grows on a group of steep slate vineyards next-door to the Rieslings, and shows literally fantastic fruit and twangy slate; elegant and limpid. I can’t remember a more interesting Rosé from Germany, and in my portfolio you have to go to Prieler to taste anything as complex as this. Calm, caressing, yet smoky and buzzingly slatey. I was literally amazed. My gob is only just recovering from the ... Read More »

Better from 2018, but at least another decade ahead of it." 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese AP 69 (White Capsule) opens with a very delicate and slatey/spicy Würzgarten bouquet with bright fruit and flinty mineral aromas. Round and lush on the palate but also with an enormously salty, complex taste and very finely chased acidity, this is a remarkably fine and elegant Würzgarten Spätlese of great purity and expressi ...Read More »

This finishes with infectious juiciness and admirable clarity, its invigoration reinforced by noticeable dissolved CO2 and its high residual sugar nicely checked by correspondingly strong and efficaciously bright acidity.

(SR)" (2/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Whiffs of chalk and slate lend a mineral tone to aromas of honey and white peach on this unctuously sweet, yet nuanced Riesling.

Jancis Robinson: "Pale straw. Very rich and racy with some nuttiness underneath and massive passion fruit acidity. Masses of extract and already quite a bit of sweetness is evident. This should evolve into something very special. 18.5/20 points" (6/2016) K&L Notes: The Wehlener Sonnenuhr is, without question, the most famous of vineyard sites within the Prüm Estate if not all of the Mosel Valley. With its south-southwest exposure, weathered grey slate and ridiculous steepness (up to 70%) it provides an optimal growing climate for Riesling. The wines from here show fantastic depth of s...

Winemaker's Notes: "The grapes for the Thanisch Pinot Noir were grown in the fantastic and extremely steep vineyard Lieserer-Niederberg-Helden, which is situated in Lieser, a neighboring village close to Bernkastel. Out of this vineyard we receive one of the best qualities in this region for Pinot Noir grapes, dedicated to become a fine and elegant Mosel Pinot Noir.
