2017 Fritz Haag Brauneberger "J" Riesling Trocken Mosel

SKU #1400797 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very distinctive dried-pear and herbal nose. It shows a great balance of restrained power and cool elegance on the palate. A long herb and mineral finish. This wine will do all the things you’d expect of a top Chablis! Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Delicately dry, with spice, tarragon and crunchy pear notes buoyed by lively clementine zest acidity. Silky in texture and smooth on the palate, but still a bit wound up because of its age. Features hints of salted butter and candied citrus on the tangy yet sumptuous finish.

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Vinified partly in fuders (25%) and aged on the lees until April, the 2017 Brauneberger Riesling Trocken "J" is fine and yeasty on the elegant, balanced, beautifully flinty nose with still-reduced fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, very elegant, refined and refreshing dry Riesling that comes almost entirely from the Juffer and Juffer Sonnenuhr. This beautifully lush wine reveals all you can expect from fine Mosel Riesling: finesse, elegance and balance. Tasted in March 2019. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Brauneberger “J” Trocken hails from a blend of fruit from the Juffer vineyard and the Juffer-Sonnenuhr and the wine is excellent out of the blocks in 2017. The nose wafts from the glass in a sophisticated blend of grapefruit, lime peel, salty slate minerality, wild yeasts, a touch of herbs and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, crisp and complex, with excellent backend mineral drive, a good core, bright acids and impressive cut and grip on the long and classy finish. I really like this a lot, and the only caveat is that the 2016 version tasted right before it was already showing a bit of permanent reduction from its screwcap. With that in mind, I might be inclined to drink the 2017 version very early on, which is a pity, as this has the depth and structure to age gracefully if under natural cork. But, it will not disappoint in its youth! 91+ Inner quote mark (5/2018)

K&L Notes

90 points Mosel fine Wines: "AP: 17 18. The Brauneberger Trocken J is made from fruit harvested in the Juffer and Juffer-Sonnenuhr vineyards, hence the J. It proves quite restrained and reductive at first and only gradually reveals its beautiful fresh nose of minty herbs, lime, grapefruit, apple, spices and smoke. The wine develops quite some structure on the palate where zesty acidity, spices and herbs add the refreshing side. The finish is assertive and slightly powerful, with in addition, a tart side which still needs to integrate into the wine. This could well turn out even better than expected at maturity as it gains in finesse. 2020-2027." (10/2018)
