This 80-page strong Issue includes Part I of our extensive 2016 Vintage Report with 400 wines tasted ... but also a few additional goodies. Here is what is in store.
While the highly acclaimed 2015 hit the market in Spring 2016, 2016 faced a spring from hell. However, the vintage turned miraculously for the better, literally snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. The result is a classic even if slightly ripe vintage with great early charm ... and, hidden amongst its midst, some of the most stunning pieces of Mosel classicism we have tasted in 10 years of Mosel Fine Wines.
Part I of the Vintage Report includes 20 detailed Estate Reviews (with over 250 wines sampled). It also provides detailed tasting notes for another 150 recommended wines from a further 30 Estates, including from some new names we bet you have never heard off.
After a background article on Sekt published in the Mosel Fine Wines Issue No 30 (Mar 2016), we have sampled some stunning new releases over the last few months, including some of the finest Sekt ever.
Our paths led us to taste the superb 2015 collections of two leading German wine growers, J.B. Becker and Georg Breuer in the Rheingau. Both produced some exciting piece of dry Riesling!
“Where can I access mature Mosel Riesling?” As an answer to this regular question of our readers, we provide here detailed tasting notes for 4 superb mature Riesling still commercially available at the Estate, mainly Sekt this time.
