This 95-page strong Issue includes Part II of our extensive 2017 Vintage Report with 380 tasting notes including of the wines from the upcoming Trier Auctions. Here is what is in store.
After a brilliantly vibrant 2015 and a gorgeously sensual 2016, can the Mosel hit the bull’s eye three times in a row? It seems so, despite (or thanks to) the fact that 2017 was hit by some devastating yield-reducing frost. The finest of the 2017 wines are simply amazing ... and there is perfection at the top! We provide an overview on what is set to become a remarkable vintage.
Part I of the Vintage Report includes 10 detailed Estate Reviews (with 165 wines sampled). It also provides detailed tasting notes for another 120 recommended wines from a further 15 Estates, including from some new names we bet you have never heard off.
The 2018 Auction will take place on September 21 and 22, 2018 and give wine lovers the chance to acquire some of the finest casks of Mosel Riesling. We provide a detailed background as well as full detailed tasting notes for the wines on offer ... even for those unlikely to be opened again before the Auctions!
