Some German producers are now so good that they are a real alternative for Burgundy.
This time: One of the best German sparklings, two amazing Rieslings, something from a new winery at the Loire and Lopez de Heredia in 3 variants.
This time: High quality sweet wines for Christmas.
Four Rieslings from Nahe, Mosel and Rheingau plus Monte Bello Chardonnay resulted in a nice evening. Life is good!
Various red wines from Germany, California and Chile accompanied the main course.
2011 is a forgotten year for German Riesling. It is neither an exceptional nor a bad vintage and so it is not remembered well. Let's see how the vintage really is.
High-end Cava, long on the lees, from Recaredo against other bubbles from Champagne and Germany.
It all started when we had a monkfish for dinner and wanted to have a perfect match. So we just wanted to have a good Riesling as accompaniment and opened some bottles. Finally we had a extensive Riesling tasting with 8 Riesling and one pirate.
A Bienvenues Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru and two Rieslings made our evening. In total it were three great wines.
1921, 1959, 1971 and 1976 are the great vintages for German Riesling. And 1975 - ofter forgotten but equal in quality. Here we have "Staatsweingüter Eltville / Kloster Eberbach" which is very famous for its old vintages from 40s to 70s.
Georg Breuer's Riesling Schlossberg reaches higher and higher prices in auctions. Why?
