Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett Riesling 2011

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A racy style, with crisp green apple, mineral and dried pear flavors that drop off quickly. Taut and savory on the finish. Drink now through 2018.

All the attention is focussed exclusively on three noble grape varieties traditionally associated with the Mosel – 95% Riesling, 3% Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and 2% Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc). Depending on the vintage conditions, annual production varies between 200.000 and 300.000 bottles, of which over 90% are of the 0,75 litre size.

Incorporating fruit picked as late as November 12, Molitor’s 2011 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett offers juicy, borderline-overripe apple and Persian melon accompanied by a whiff of struck-flint pungency, as well as nut oil sweet-smokiness on the palate. A long, succulent, if relatively simple finish clinches this bottling’s surefire appeal, though whether it will gain some complexity, including mineral dimensions, over time I won’t try to predict, but shall instead recommend enjoying this fine value over the next 4–6 years. (Some of the typically 15,000 bottles of Molitor’s Badstube Kabinett, incidentally, are always readily available in the U.S.)
