Erdener Treppchen Kabinett J.J. Christoffel 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Erdener Treppchen Kabinett is one of my favorite wines from the Christoffel estate this year, as here some of the tangy acids of the vintage have been retained nicely. The bouquet is deep, complex and quite pretty in its mélange of lilacs, pears, apples, slate and a gentle touch of petrol. On the palate the wine is medium-full and clearly of Spätlese must weights, but with lovely, tangy framing acids and very good length and grip on the filigreed finish. Good juice that would age very well indeed if bottled under natural cork. How it will evolve under screwcap is much more a matter of speculation. 2012-2025...92" JG 4/11 "Sassafras, licorice, and apple on the nose of Christoffel’s 8.5% alcohol 2010 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett carry over onto a palate surprisingly soothing for this vintage – delightfully inner-mouth perfumed – and finishing just a tad sweeter than I would have anticipated, but with a piquant touch of nuttiness helping supply counterpoint. I would tentatively plan on enjoying this over the next 10-12 years...89" WA #199 02/12
