Monchhof Eymael Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Spectator: Tangy, with an open texture and frame around flavors of peach, nectarine and slate. Tightens up on the finish, showing the potential for aging. Drink now through 2019.

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. 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.

Oddly bright tropical fruit nose of pineapple, guava, etc. Lovely peach and nectarine flavors with a strong slate backbone. Nice! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 10/2/10
