2011 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Trocken (dry) Mosel

SKU #1547508 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark All of the raw material, incidentally, came from the Juffer. Haag’s 2011 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling trocken – weighing-in, like its 2010 predecessor, at 12.5% alcohol, and matured in a combination of tank and fuder – delivers juicy white peach and grapefruit, apple and lime, with the sort of stony cantus firmus that already characterized its generic and “village” predecessors, but incorporating invigorating citrus rind, pungent sage, and a bite of black pepper, its fruit, herb, and mineral elements positively shimmering in a long, engaging and refreshing finish. There is an admirable sense of lift which, taken together with the “northerly” fruit character, wafting floral allusions, and saliva liberating salinity, serves for mouthwatering satisfaction and belies the wine’s alcoholic weight. In keeping with VDP marketing preferences, this wine “ought” not to exist since there is a Grosses Gewachs in the Haag line-up named for the same site. (And I know some of you will believe that’s why I’m so enthusiastic about it ) But Oliver Haag says this tasted too good not to bottle separately and besides he wisely wanted to capture a wine with a greater sense of levity. It ought to satisfy for the better part of a decade.(DS) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and robust, this bursts with intense flavors of baked apple, glazed peach and pear tart, revealing plenty of cream and spice accents. Long and lush on the finish, offering lingering anise, ripe melon and savory herb notes. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 17 12. This offers a great and highly elegant nose of flowers, yellow peach, pear, slightly candied grapefruit as well as smoke from reduction and a touch of whipped cream. The wine is superbly refined on the palate and offers a great touch of refinement. The finish is smooth, balanced and superbly long. This is a gorgeous wine indeed which is just irresistible." (10/2012)
