2021 Egon Muller - Le Gallais Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Spatlese
Egon Müller exists at a rare level of fame and respect in the world of wine, widely considered one of the finest producers who is at the pinnacle of quality. Where the likes of Domaine de la Romanee Conti sit at this level in Burgundy, so too Egon Müller in Germany. This is reflected not only with their unrivalled track record of excellence, but also with the prices paid for rare Egon Müller bottles at auction, including some of the most expensive white wines ever sold. Egon Müller is also the sole German member of the Primum Familiae Vini (First Families of Wine) whose other members include owners of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Chateau Haut Brion, Vega Sicilia, Pol Roger, Antinori and Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia).
The 2021er Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Spätlese is a sweet wine with a beautiful nose made of orchard fruits, cassis, floral elements, bergamot, chalk, and smoke. The wine is beautifully filigreed and elegant on the palate. A subtle touch of whipped cream adds some depth and silkiness to the overall focused and zesty experience. The finish is really to die for as it is both creamy and hugely zest, as one would expect from a high end Spätlese. Drink 2031-2061.
Jean Fisch & David Rayer - Mosel Fine Wines
A slew of white peach, nectarine and tangerine aromas with just a hint of floral honey. Delicate herbal undertones. Wonderful lacy mouthfeel, the acidity only becoming forthright at the long structured and succulent finish. Drink or hold.
