I'll keep this brief. Lauer hit the bullseye in 2019.
As usual, Lauer's GGs are high points of the collection.
Lauer's 2019 GGs are grand, soaring, vivid, and lifted. Both GGs are brilliantly clear and have a finely tuned balance. The differences between the respective sites really jump out at you.
Starting with Kupp, this is Lauer’s most famous vineyard and one of the great sites of the Saar. Sourced from the best parcels in the vineyard, the Kupp GG is one of the most complete wines of the Saar. It is more lithe and more mineral of the two wines.
Feils is a top site for Lauer and one of the great under-the-radar vineyards of the Saar. It's a unique site for the Saar, hugging the river and benefitting from the warm microclimate, complex slate, and alluvial soil. Lauer has an incredible ability to render the site's power and weight and introduce a rigor and delicacy to it.
There's very little point in fanning the fire. Word is out on Lauer's 2019s, and it is emphatically out on the 2019 Germans. In the past month, there's been an onslaught of orders for them. As always, Lauer's GGs are in short supply. We suggest that you get your orders in quickly.
