2018 Max Ferd. Richter Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1438197 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett is deep but bright and refined on the flinty nose that offers perfectly ripe Riesling and crunchy slate aromas with a warm iron touch. On the palate, this is a lush, refined, salty-piquant, even racy Riesling with generous fruit and a very long, salty-piquant and crystalline finish. This is a highly complex Riesling in the most delicate expression. It's one of the wines you just have to buy—there won't be any regrets, not today or in 30 years. Since this Brauneberger has slightly more sulfur compared to the Wehlener Sonnenuhr, which still hasn't been filtered and was tasted from the lees, I will retaste the wines early next year, as I am convinced a Mosel Riesling needs two winters to unmask itself.

Outer quote mark The Juffer 2018 Kabinett was the only grand cru at this Prädikat level that was already bottled. The wine is a touch more aromatically reserved after its mise, but with a bit of coaxing shows lovely potential in its blend of pear, apple, a nice touch of mossiness, wild yeasts, salty soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, medium-full, complex and vibrant, with really good acids, fine focus and grip and a long, complex finish. This seems just a touch riper in style than the Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett, but without losing its Prädikat sensibilities. This finished off at 8.7 percent alcohol. Good juice. (Drink between 2023-2060) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 03 19. The 2018er Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett was harvested at 87° Oechsle and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (50 g/l). It offers a beautiful nose of white peach, pear, minty herbs and fine smoky elements. The wine is superbly elegant and full of white peach and apricot blossom on the delicately creamy palate and leaves a nicely crisp feel in the finish. This flirts with Spätlese presence on the palate but remains truly Kabinett-styled in the finish." (6/2019)
