About This Wine

OK, let's speak frankly - we are not here to deceive. The site here, "Busslay," is the flatland site opposite the famed Pralat and Treppchen. If this were from the late 1960s, maybe the situation would be different, because the original Busslay was part of what is now the Treppchen and was a great site. Traditionally the flat sites in the Mosel were used for mixed agriculture while the steep slopes were reserved for viticulture. That all changed during the mid-century boom in commercial (read: non-artisan) German winemaking. The ONLY viticulturally interesting point the flatlands may offer is that how many of us have really tasted Mosel wine from the flat sites? Most gets bottled into cheap supermarket wines that are certainly never exported. So here's your chance! You can brag to your friends! The estate claims to use Fuders and have mostly own-rooted vines, but no one serious has ever recommended the wines. On the other hand, 2001 is an awesome vintage and Eiswein always gives a boost. And this wine is priced so low you sort of can't say no?
