Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben Riesling Spätlese Ürziger Würzgarten 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Beat Caduff: Tolle Frucht mit viel verspielter Aromatik, da zeigt sich auch die Mineralität besonders schön, etwas Galiamelone, saftige Pfirsiche, Mirabelle, Quitte, Mangos und etwas Moro-Orangen. Im Gaumen voll mit vielen Muskeln, filigran, tolle Eleganz, guter Schmelz, so saftig mit rassiger, reifer Säure, sehr lang und fordernd, macht viel Spass.

The Mönchhof, formerly in the possession of the Cisterian abbey Himmerod, is one of the oldest Wine 'Estates at the Mosel. Pope Alexander III already confirmed the first Wine Estate possession of the abbey in the year 1177 in Uerzig. The monks of Himmerod built the wine-cellar at that time and in 1509 the estate you can admire today. In 1804, after the secularization by Napoleon, our family could acquire the Wine Estate in Paris. Robert Eymael leads since 1994 the Wine Estate. Joke and humor paired with a quality-conscious individualism, describe his philosophy, which reflects itself in the inimitable style of its Riesling wines. Read less

With its honeyed and floral tropical fruit flavors, this shows a lot of sweetness right now. Its latent complexity is apparent, but this will need time in the cellar to settle down and reveal its true depth.

A juicy, tangy version, featuring crunchy apple, peach and jellied lime notes. Rich and balanced, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Hard not to enjoy this now. Drink now through 2022.

Spicy and lively, this creamy, red berry and citrus-infused white remains focused and tangy through the finish. It goes for freshness over concentration. Drink now through 2015.
