Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Seems almost confectionary in its bold, fruit-driven aromas of spring flowers, strawberries and lime, but picks up greater minerality and some petrol notes on the slightly creamy-texture palate. Long and fruit-driven on the finish.

For years, Annegret and Gerhard Gartner have created a nearly perfect harmony between their personal and professional lives – something only a few married couples succeed in doing. Not only are they inseparable from one another, but also from their work. It comes as no surprise – nearly everything revolves around food and wine. The wines are uncompromisingly and consistently subject to the highest quality standards. This commitment has earned the estate recognition and respect, and has been confirmed by many prizes and awards by leadinging publications, such as the German gourmet magazine Feinschmecker, the critical wine guide Gault Millau, and the American wine magazine Wine Spectator (including vintner of the year) – to name but a few. Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is more than 650 years old and thus, one of the most historical estates in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. In 1978, the Günther Reh family acquired the estate from the Reichsgrafen (imperial counts) of Kesselstatt. Today, Annegret Reh-Gartner and her husband Gerhard Gartner carry on this Riesling tradition. In 1999, headquarters moved from Palais Keselstatt in Trier to Schloss Marienlay in the Ruwer Valley. Here, optimal conditions were created for producing Riesling wines that are on a par with the finest wines of the world. No other wine estate in Germany has such an unusually broad spectrum of top vineyards in all three river valleys of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. They are sites that number among the best white wine vineyards of the world. The estate owns 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines, all of which are on steep slopes. All work in the vineyards is exclusively done by hand. The estate’s guiding principle: the quality of the terroir should be reflected in a wine. Read less

A lovely, straightforward kabinett with flinty apple and melon aromas and flavors. Medium to light body, lightly sweet and light on the finish.

Racy and almond-flavored, with the telltale Mosel "cut" of firm acidity, here's a straightforward, resonant white ending on a crisp note. Best from 2002 through 2006.

This bottle proves that a quality Piesporter can compete quite well with the more famous vineyard sites. The nose is marked by lush peach and a tight bundle of other flavors trying to emerge. On the palate, lime and mineral provide an interesting and refreshing contrast to the ripe flavors picked up on the nose. Drink this wine now for the freshness and complexity that it's already showing, or drink it in a few years when the nose is sure to become more elegant and complex.

A floral style, with rose, violet and apricot aromas and flavors. Rich and round, on a light-bodied frame, it's very open and accessible, with a long finish. Drink now through 2010.

A focused white, this delivers clearly defined aromas and flavors of apple and slate, and zingy acidity. has a sleek, almost transparent profile. Drink now through 2004.

It isn't a mistake that the best vineyard in Piesport is called "gold drops." This vineyard, more than any other in the Mosel, yields wines with pre essence of Riesling fruit and honey flavors. At home with a variety of foods, this wine is probably best enjoyed by itself, where the delightful flavors can be appreciated in all their glory.
