"No stone should be left unturned... "
2019 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Spätlese #10

Schaefer's 2019s seem destined to join the best vintages that this great estate produced over the past few decades.

Ultra Cool Climate:
2019 Lauer Riesling "Fass 4"

Lauer is most famous for his wines sourced from the Grand Cru "Kupp" Vineyard, a site equal to any in the Saar or Mosel. Yet, tucked behind Lauer's village of Ayl are two cooler sites, the Scheidterberg and the Rauberg. These are sites that shape wines of shocking electricity.

2019 Weiser-Künstler Enkircher Ellergrub Kabinett

Ellergrub is Weiser-Künstler's top site.

"Truly remarkable wine"
2019 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Spätlese #5

This is simply a don't miss vintage for Schaefer. Even judged by their superlative track record over many decades, the 2019s are stunning.

Keller Rarities:
Hipping Kabinett "Prince Louis" & Grosses Gewächs

Few producers in the world are hunted down with as much fervor as Keller's wines.

"A stunning expression of airy dry Mosel Riesling"
2018 Willi Schaefer Himmelreich Grosses Gewächs

Schaefer's 2018s are absolutely stunning. They leap out as among the best examples of the vintage. The Himmelreich GG has blazing minerality with a pristine expression. 

Indescribable Magic:
2017 Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Auslese Half-Bottles & 750s

Line up the top wines of the world, toss an Egon Müller into the mix and watch people's eyes light up when the Müller comes around the table.

"Andreas and Barbara Adam really nailed the 2018 vintage."
2018 AJ Adam Dhron Riesling In der Sängerei

In 2018, Adam turned out one of his most impressive collections of the past decade.

They represent one of the high notes of the 2018 vintage. You would be hard-pressed to find a set of wines that possess as much verve and finely etched minerality.

The Undeniable Magic of Müller:
QbA to Eiswein

To state the obvious, the wines of Egon Müller are world-class.

In terms of combining intensity and weightless refinement, Müller is without peer. 

2018 Keller Abtserde Grosses Gewächs

Abtserde has the magical ability to take the power of Hubacker and the minerality of Morstein and Kirchspiel and roll them up into a wine of heartbreaking finesse and ungodly length.

It's not at all surprising that Abtserde is one of the hardest wines to track down. 

Willi Schaefer: 2002-2018

Baby "Grand Cru"
- 2019 Keller Von der Fels Trocken

At this point, Keller is recognized as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.

There are many ways to highlight Keller's skills, but perhaps the best is what he achieves with a wine at the price point of Von der Fels.

"A huge success"
2019 Egon Müller Scharzhof QbA

Typically QbA is a humble category, housing producers' "Estate" wines. They can be nice wines, but seldom are they profound.

Müller's QbA transcends the entire designation. It's without peer.

"At their best, they remind us of 2001, but subtler and deeper." - 2019 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

We wanted to kick off our 2019 German offerings in a big way.

There's no expression of Riesling quite like Müller's Scharzhofberger. It offers intensity without weight; a steely nobility that's breathtaking.

Hitting the Bulls-Eye - Revisited:
2018 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Spätlese #5

There appears to be no stopping Willi Schaefer. They are a historic benchmark and loved by every Riesling fan that we've met. However, in recent vintages, the quality has really shown just what a world-class estate this is.

Vintage after vintage, they turn out some of the greatest wines.

"Among the finest growers of the Mosel"
- 2018 Weiser-Kunstler Trarbacher Schlossberg Kabinett

"Once again, Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler underline why they are among the finest growers of the Mosel. " -Mosel Fine Wine Based on their small size and purity-focused winemaking style, many people like to compare their wines to Willi Schaefer’s. Their stunning lineup of rieslings are soulful, delicate, and simply magical.

Without Peer - A Celebration of Müller's Kabinett:
From Bottles to 6-Liters

We're obsessed with Egon Müller's Kabinett. The way that it manages intensity without weight makes it utterly and uniquely compelling. Catching a bottle of Müller's Kabinett in the zone is one of our favorite wine experiences.

"The 2017 collection by Willi Schaefer is awe-inspiring and possibly the finest ever"
- 2017 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Spätlese #10

Time has only reinforced the quote from Mosel Fine Wines above. Schaefer has been on a tear in recent years. Even in this context, the 2017s seem special. We recently opened a bottle of the Domprobst Spätlese #10, and it was stunning.

2017 Keller Abtserde GG

Few wines are hunted down as aggressively or are harder to find than Keller's Abtserde. Keller's Abtserde has become a ghost wine. Today's offer underscores this fact. There are no other listings for Keller's 2017 Abtserde in the U.S.

“Perfect in Proportion” - Cool-Climate, Calm and Collected: 2019 Lauer “Senior”

“Sourced from 70+-year-old, ungrafted vines in one of Florian’s coolest Grand Cru parcels, Lauer’s ‘Senior’ is simply one of the great dry Rieslings of Germany.” We wrote the above line in last year’s “Senior” offering, and we believe it now more than ever: This is, without question, one of the greatest values in white wine - Grand Cru in everything but price.

"Manages the tour de force of being both bold and subtle at the same time."
- 2016 Lauer Ayler Kupp Riesling Spatlese Fass 7

Lauer's 2016 Kupp Spätlese manages a beautiful combination of silky richness and luminous lift.

The Mosel's Finest, 118 Years of History: Stein “1900”

Stein's 1900 is one of the greatest wines of the Mosel, and no one really knows about it. This is a wine we’ve obsessed over, coveted and collected since the first vintage (2011). It’s a wine we’ve quietly introduced to a few collectors and fanatics, to near-universal amazement.

"This is a superb effort and one of the best Scharzhofberger Kabinett we have ever tasted."
- 2015 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Kabinett Alte Reben Auction

Müller's 2015s seem poised to become absolute legends. Egon Müller compares his 2015s to his 1990s, which are amazing wines - some of the best of the past few decades. We're excited to offer one of the greatest wines of Müller's 2015 collection, Scharzhofberger Kabinett Alte Reben Auction.

2016 Keller Westhof Abtserde GG

Along with Keller's G-Max, Abtserde is the most sought-after wine in all of Germany. Even beyond Germany, few wines are hunted down as aggressively or are harder to find than Keller's Abtserde. This is currently the only listing for the 2016 Abtserde in the country.
