Müller-Catoir Riesling Kabinett Mußbach 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Not trocken, and in fact Eselshaut; It’s a lavish peachy wine, drenched in orange-blossom and talc; in the best sense frivolous and witty, with high tones of freesia and comice pears.

Surprisingly flavoursome; full-bodied and very racy, rich in extract and with a fruity acidity structure. All wines are made from grapes from the winery's own vineyards. The harvest is limited through restrictive vine pruning in the winter, supplemented by partial removal of grapes in the summer. Soil is given meticulous care (mostly permanent green cover) and there is selective hand-picking of very small grape quantities without use of a combine-harvester. The result of these methods are high extract figures, ripe acidity and a definitive character for each variety, making even small vintages full-bodied and top-class. Since grapes are always harvested extremely late on this estate, the musts are cold when they arrive in the cellar and so ferment slowly without any interference. After racking to remove yeast, wines are not touched again until they are filled into bottles. During bottled storage, these non-moved wines usually precipitate tartrate crystals and may sparkle slightly. So it is advisable to keep them at a temperature of 10-12° C for at least two hours before opening, to pull corks carefully and then leave the bottles open for a while so that their full bouquet can develop.

Pink grapefruit on the nose. Truly surprisingly dark flavors with slight mint and grapefruit zest had been dipped in dark chocolate. Rich and vivacious! some floral notes and melon. Complex, ever-evolving and simply fantastic! Great mineral, acidity and sweetness all balanced harmoniously. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/15/10

Continuing with the simplification of labeling - but in this instance no cross-vineyard blending, as the wine comes entirely from the Eselshaut - Muller-Catoir has rendered a 2007 Mussbacher Riesling Kabinett that is positively gaudy. Scents and flavors of mango, peach, musk melon, talcum, and honey are backed by a considerable measure of sheer sweetness. An opulent yet not at all heavy palate display leads to a lasting finish from which one might, however, ask for just a bit more juiciness. This should keep well for at least 8-10 years, and perhaps be even more satisfying after its baby fat and superficial sweetness tone down a bit. eRobertParker.com , # 185 Oct 2009, David Schildknecht

Scents of orange blossom and heliotrope waft from the glass of Muller-Catoir 2007 Haardter Burgergarten Riesling Spatlese, leading to a palate impression akin to sucking on a vanilla-tinged, honey-drenched orange creamsicle. Yet for all of its confectionary aspects and creaminess of texture, this pure, polished wine harbors offsetting refreshment and savory, saline mineral suggestions. Hints of black tea, mint, and licorice add to the allure of a finish with lift, delicacy, and memorably soothing length. There is more than a little Mosel-like here, which one could understandably see as an extension of Franzen's heritage. This should be worth revisiting over the course of two decades. eRobertParker.com , # 185 Oct 2009, David Schildknecht
