750ml | SKU 92271 | 40 Available
93 WA

The 2021 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett is discreet and elegant on the subtle nose that is more yeasty and earthy than the Treppchen Kabinett at this stage. On the palate, this is a lush and refined, delicately saline Kabinett that is persistently s...

I love the interplay of bright summer-fruit aromas and the vibrant, appley and lemony acidity of this sleek young thing. Drink now. Screw cap.

2021 Lauer, Peter - Riesling Barrel X Feinherb

750ml | SKU 90911 | 36 Available

“Barrel X” is winemaker Florian Lauer’s Platonic ideal of what a slightly off-dry (feinherb) Saar Riesling should be. If we were in Burgundy, this would be the equivalent of a “Bourgogne Blanc.” As an appellation-level wine, it is sourced from multiple vineyards in four different villages of the Saar: Ayl (Lauer’s home village), Saarburg, Wawern and Wiltingen. Florian says, “From Ayl and Wawern, the wine gains the fruit and power, from Saarburg the racy acidity, and from Wiltingen, the spice.”

Regardless of what comes from where, this much is certain: dollar for dollar, I’m not sure there is a 750ml bottle that delivers as much joy and zing. This is the gateway drug to Lauer, to the Saar, to Riesling… be careful. Very addictive.


2021 Lauer, Peter - Feils Riesling Fass 13 Grosses Gewachs

750ml | SKU 92824 | Available
96 JS

Feils is a warm site; it is also sneakily steep. Convex like a spoon, the vineyard begins mildly as you walk through it heading down to the river. However, as one reaches center-slope the incline becomes quite severe. In the pictures in the gallery, you can see the roundness and dip of the site – especially in the second picture. The lowest third of the vineyard is extremely steep.

The wine this site produces is one of the most textural and luscious of the GGs; from the beginning it can show a rather broad range of fruit and spice. It also tends to drink earlier than Lauer’s other GGs, though obviously this can change vintage to vintage.


2021 Lauer, Peter - Riesling Fass 18 Kupp Grosses Gewachs

750ml | SKU 92825 | Available
94 JS

In a way, the Kupp GG is the final selection of the cherry parcels of the Kupp hill. As with Burgundy, most often Grand Cru, the best grapes, come from the mid-section of the hill – see the map in the gallery. The red-colored parcels are where Lauer sources the grapes: the middle section above Unterstenberg and below Stirn, as well as selected parcels both east and west.


2020 Loewen, Carl - Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Kabinett

750ml | SKU 89127 | 20 Available
93 JS

Very juicy with tons of peach, apricot and guava. However, this also has so much minty and tarragon freshness, the balance of fruit and mineral acidity joyfully spot-on. Drink or hold.


2019 Loewen, Carl - Thornicher Ritsch Auslese

750ml | SKU 84951 | 12 Available
97 JS

Enormous energy and vibrancy here with almost none of the extravagant fruit and honey that a lot of wines of this category show. Rather, this offers intense grapefruit and herbal notes that are married to an almost austere, stony character. Uplifting, ve...
