This time the evening brought a surprisingly fresh Assyrtiko, a large Gräfenberg and sensational Californians.

Three old fine wine - 1949 Clos Vougeot, 1959 Rauenthaler Gehrn Riesling TBA, 1971 Bensheimer Streichling Riesling TBA - were donated by a friend.

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?
