2009 Maximin Grunhaus Herren Riesling Eiswein 375ml (half bottle)
Robert Parker The Wine Advocate: Harvested on December 19 and pressed until on the 20th juice finally began running, the 2009 Maximin Grunhauser Herrenberg Riesling Eiswein represents what flowed later and under less solidly-frozen conditions. Candied...
Schlossgut Diel
2013 Schlossgut Diel Riesling Kabinett
Importer's Note:The Schlossgut Diel vineyards, castle and winery are of great historical significance. The winery was purchased by the Diel family in 1802 from the Baron Dalberg, who had managed to prevent its confiscation by Napoleon’s troops in...
2015 Strub Riesling Niersteiner Oelberg Trocken Rheinhessen
Importer's Note:“Taubennest” is the cadaster name for the best parcel in Oelberg. And this wine taught me a valuable lesson. What follows is my “tasting note,” in which I do what tasters do, deconstruct and analyze the flavors of...
2016 Eugen Muller Vom Basalt Riesling Kabinett
Wine Notes: Basalt is of course (and famously) the soil of the Pechstein, from which this wine indeed hails, but it’s bottled under the name of a small privileged Grosslage because it’s the “item” Müller’s private...
Jakob Schneider
2016 Jakob Schneider Niederhäuser Kertz Riesling feinherb
Importer's Note:The pick among Jakob’s ‘16s, and one of my own personal must-buys, I find this to be a miracle of Riesling. Kertz is like an exceedingly rare and difficult orchid, that blooms every nine years but when it does there’s...

2016 Joh. Jos. Prüm Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett
Vinous: 93 Points  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...
Carl von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser
2016 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Herrenberg Kabinett 1.5L
THE MAXIMIN GRÜNHAUS ESTATE: The estate dates back to the 7th century, when it was given to the Benedictine monastery of St. Maximin in Trier. In 1882, it was purchased by an ancestor of Carl and Maximin von Schubert, who are the fifth and sixth...
2016 Muller Catoir MC Riesling Feinherb
Tasting Notes: A custom bottling made for me, this is perfect. Perfect Riesling, perfect food-wine, perfectly clear and polished and tasty and interesting. Lemon flavor without lemon tartness; like a meyer, part-way to a peach. I’ve had a ton of...
2016 Schafer-Frohlich Bockenauer Felseneck Riesling Gewächs
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:  98 Points The 2016 Nahe Riesling Felseneck "GG" is super pure, precise, crystalline and flinty on the nose and palate, a great expression of the slatey terroir. There is a fascinating blueberry and floral expression...
