"This is plain gorgeous" -
Mosel Fine Wine 2016 Lauer Unterstenberg

Posted by Joe Salamone

In 2016, Lauer nailed it with Unterstenberg.

This may be the most precise and multidimensional Unterstenberg that we've tasted.

The Unterstenberg is at the bottom of the mountain. It is a warmer, more protected site that produces profoundly mineral and broad-shouldered wine.

What makes the 2016 Unterstenberg stand out is the unusual amount of refinement and grace that it delivers. It shows a brilliant, driving minerality that's beautifully lifted.

The 2016 is saturated by slate and possesses a gorgeous sense of agility. There's a crystal-clear presentation of complex citrus, herbs and gentle spices. It's a textbook example of Lauer's signature of delivering intensity and lightness simultaneously.

As we taste more and more of Lauer's 2016s, we're convinced that it's a very strong, and absolutely lovely, vintage for them. The 2016 collection excels when it comes to transparency, poise and appealing texture.

I'll wrap this up. Lauer's Unterstenberg has been a vital part of our Riesling program since the 2007 vintage. The 2007 is drinking beautifully today. We created special 4-pack pricing for the 2016 because this is a wine that you'll want to drink in quantity and stash away for the years to come.
