Vinous: 95/100

“it is showing too impressively today not to advertise its virtues”



Professional reviews:

Vinous (David Schildknecht): “This bottling has been out for nearly two years but I have noticed some still on the market, and it is showing too impressively today not to advertise its virtues with an updated tasting note. A high-toned nose mingles corn shoot, sour mash, kirsch, mothball, fresh ginger and distilled floral essences. The silky palate displays a subtly sweet sense of sheer ripeness despite analytical dryness, with hauntingly floral inner-mouth perfume and forest floor undertones that act like a plush carpet of moss over which plays a kaleidoscopic display of floral, fruity, spicy, subtly peaty and otherwise multifacetedly mineral elements. Incidentally, the starting point here was not significantly higher in must weight than were the grapes for two dry 2009 Spätlesen, so the designation “Auslese” was chosen entirely based on the wine’s personality and its (correctly!) perceived aging potential.” 95/100 pts

Mosel Fines Wines (David Rayer & Jean Fisch): “The 2009er Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Auslese Trocken R offers refined and elegant notes of almond cream, flowers, and yellow peach, and evolves into riper scents of butter cream, bakery elements, and ripe yellow fruits. The wine comes over as quite juicy and smooth at first on the palate, but a great kick of energy quickly joins the party and brings the flavors to life. It leaves one with a nicely balanced and persistent feel in the finish. A hint of power comes through in the after-taste, which makes us opt to drink our remaining bottles of this beauty over the coming years. Now-2027”
