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

Posted by Joe Salamone

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.

Today, we celebrate Müller's Scharzhofberger Kabinet with an offer for the 2018 vintage in bottles, magnums, rare double-magnums, and six-liters. This is the first time that we've seen double-magnums and six-liters. There are no other listings in the country.

Scharzhofberg and Egon Müller is one of the great marriages in all of wine. Scharzhofberg is a great site. Unlike many of Germany's top sites where potential ripeness is an important part of the equation, Scharzhofberg works on a different logic. The site produces wines with relatively low oechsle (ripeness) levels.

Scharzhofberger Kabinetts, in any vintage, thrive on steely finesse, full of cut and mineral-drenched length that emphasizes the wine's nobility. The 2018 is certainly a richer vintage of the Kabinett, but the breeding and nervy core really shine through. It's this melding of power and vivacity that makes the 2018 so fascinating and promises that it will age nicely. Müller can excel in warm vintages, and 2018 is a case in point.

For us, Scharzhofberger Kabinett is one of our favorite wines anywhere. Bottles with 20 or even 30 years of age have blown us away. Please keep in mind that many of the wines on offer are in extremely short supply.

2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Kabinett

Special Bottle Price: $105.95

Mosel Fine Wine: "This 2018er Scharzhofberger Kabinett was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (53 g/l). It proves quite restrained at first and only gradually reveals elegant and refined scents of pear, white flowers, herbs, gooseberry and spices. The wine is nicely creamy and at first slightly soft and sweet side on the palate before refreshing elements of minty herbs and spices join the party. The finish is nicely delicate, smooth and zesty. This more opulent expression of Kabinett than usual at this fine Estate will need quite some time to integrate its sweetness and fully blossom."

Special Magnum Price: $259.95

Special 3-Liter Price: $629.95
