Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett 2021
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Such a pristine and uplifting Mosel Kabinett, the interplay of brilliant acidity and fine peach, chamomile and white flower aromas. Lightning strikes at the finish where the touch of unfermented grape sweetness evaporates like a drop of water on a hot slate stone. So delicious and so much potential. Drink or hold.
A sixth-century chronicle state that the vineyards of Brauneberg were "propter vinum" (because of wine) bequeathed to Verdun, France, then an important Roman commercial center. Napoleon paid tribute to the Brauneberger wines by fixing their prices above those of all other Mosel wines. When, in 1806, the Mosel vineyard sites were divided into classes according to the quality of their wines, Brauneberg was the only name in the first rank.
