Monchhof Riesling Auslese Urziger Wurzgarten 2007

Member Review by pacw808:

Wow! was the first thing I thought when I tasted this Riesling in 2008. It has the flavors I prefer such as peach and other fruits, slight honey but with great acid and very well balanced. This did not have the slight funky aftertaste that I have seen in other Rieslings, finishing very clean and refreshing.

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.

The success of a great Auslese, especially a great Mosel Auslese relies on a harmonious marriage of ripeness, acidity, and minerality. Experience them all here in this bottle from the Mönchhof family, whose history in the Mosel dates back to the 12th Century.

Eymaelrsquo;s 2007 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett smells and tastes of lemon and strawberry; offers lift, delicacy, and enormous refreshment; and finishes with a glaze of honey and a lick of salt and wet stone. Simple, but uncannily well-balanced, a very good value, and above all fun to drink, this should stay that way for at least 6ndash;8 years.

Mönchhof's Mosel Slate bottling seems to highlight the tropical nuances of the variety. The wine has lots of ripe pineapple and mango on the nose and finishes with pronounced Slate-y minerality.

The aromas of apple skin and grapefruit peel are backed by an earthy minerality, with a bold, rich texture and body.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 93Light-bodied and filigreed, offering apricot, lime and slate flavors that build and build on the palate. There's lovely clarity and harmony, with a lingering orange- and lime-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2035.

Peach and Golden Delicious apple notes combine with the slate edge in this sleek, well-defined kabinett. Brilliant and succulent, with a lime and mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2022.
