2020 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #10 Mosel

SKU #1582118 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Mind-blowing nose of cassis and forest berries with white flowers and a hint of cedar. Staggering depth, packed into a very sleek silhouette, but the brilliant acidity and enormous wet-stone freshness are even more astonishing, because they completely distract you from the natural grape sweetness for a long while. So enjoyable now, but with such a great future ahead of it. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2021)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Willi Schaefer's 2020 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #10 is deep, fine and complex on the still reductive yet clear, dense and elegant nose. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a very fine and finely concentrated, intense and persistent Domprobst with sustainable juicy fruit and stimulating grip. This is a mouthful of great Mosel Spätlese from one of the region's finest producers. 7.5% alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in September 2021. 2020 is another excellent vintage for the Schaefer family. Although only one Auslese has been produced and no higher predicate, 2020 is a great vintage in terms of quality, even though the Schaefers "had to deal with conditions" they "have never had before." However, this "very exceptional year" has brought an impressive range of stimulating Kabinett and gorgeous Spätlese Rieslings. (SR) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

K&L Notes

95pts Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2020er Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese AP 10 was harvested mainly in different prime sectors of the vineyard and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a beautiful and subtly exotic nose made of pear, passion fruit, vineyard peach, apricot, whipped cream, aniseed herbs, and fine smoky spices. The wine is gorgeously light-footed on the fruity palate and leaves a superbly intense feel of melon, cassis, wet stone, and herbs in the nicely playfully fruity-styled finish. The aftertaste is intense yet comes overs as light as a feather. This gorgeous Spätlese will turn into a modern-day legend at maturity, in 10 years and more. 2030-2050." (07/2021)
