User Reviews for Leitz Josef Rudesheimer Riesling Eins Zwei Dry Trocken

Winemaker's Notes:

CORE-LIST WINE; and punny name notwithstanding, this is from the Geisenheimer Rothenberg, which a greedier guy would (and could) bottle as an Erstes Gewächs and sell for the price of an Alba truffle. Thus a mind-boggling value. But why? The vineyard came into Leitz’s hands through the demise of the old Erbslöh estate. It was too good to pass up. But did he really want to add to his already ample lineup of “serious” dry Rieslings? And did he want to confuse his identification with Rüdesheim? He opted to use the fruit to make a far-too-good wine at a price permissive of everyday use. That way a lot of normal folks can drink it on normal occasions. Let’s just pause for a second and consider how humane that is. The ’09 is by far the best bottling yet. Superb aromas of grains and berries, rhubarb and raw dough; the palate is higher-toned and salty – allowing for bottle-sickness (2 weeks) – but there’s still loads of Grand-Cru mojo, all kinds of non fruit erogenous jazz, pancetta savor and stock-y juiciness.
