MAGNUMS: 2015 Weingut Peter Lauer "Senior"

Posted by Joe Salamone

One of the greatest Seniors that Florian Lauer has made in his 10-year career, in magnum.

If you're reading this offer, then it's almost guaranteed that you've already heard plenty about the incredible 2015 vintage in Germany.

And it's tough to be a Crush follower and not be aware of the astonishing value that Lauer's Senior (sourced largely from 70+ year old, ungrafted vines) represents. That will make this decision effortless - you should buy these magnums.

No other format can emphasize the freshness, the minerality, the finesse of a wine the way a magnum can. For a wine as straight up delicious as Lauer's Senior, a magnum is a lot of joyful drinking.

The 2015 vintage in Germany has created a lot of excitement. A hot, dry summer was followed by a shockingly cool fall which preserved the acidity, giving the vintage an almost unheard of combination – pure, explosive fruit and depth with crackling acidity.

Lauer's Senior is a perennial staff favorite, consumed by the case-load and cellared in quantity. The 2015 version is profoundly mineral with a radiant and pristine cool fruit quality. It's also seriously intense, carrying a rigorous palate presence saturated in slate with bright citrus.

The 2015 vintage in Germany is one of the most exciting of recent memory. I’m sure that this is going to meet with a really strong response. It’s best to jump on this now and be prepared for allocations.
