Muller-Catoir Burgergarten "Im Breumel" Grosses Gewachs Riesling 2021 / 750 ml.

Item#: 99074

JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, December 13, 2022
Still extremely youthful, this 2021 riesling GG is going to take a while to come out of its shell. However, the combination of concentrated citrusy fruit and fresh herb finesse is already very apparent. Bone dry, but beautifully balanced and polished at the very long finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.

Catoir’s Haardter Riesling 2021 Bürgergarten “Im Breumel” GG VDP. Grosse Lage opens with a deep, clear and aromatic yet also elegant, pure, refined and complex bouquet of ripe and juicy fruits intermingled with iodine and even some flinty notes. Juicy, round and savory on the palate, with animating saline and grippy minerality, this is a dense, tight and structured dry Breumel Riesling that shouldn’t be on sale at this early stage since the very best is still to come here. The wine was still very young at the GG tasting in Wiesbaden in August when it showed a good yet still robust finish, but it was only slightly more open and refined in December this year. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork stopper. (Stephan Reinhardt)

Where It's From

Country / Germany

View more wines from Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.

A great riesling Spätlese with an extremely wide spectrum of aromas from red apple to mandarin orange with a touch of exotic fruit and flowers. Super-racy acidity that gives this a diamond brightness that makes you glad to be alive. Very clean and precise finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

From Gimmeldingen, the 2021 Mandelgarten Riesling Spätlese VDP. Erste Lage opens with a pure, fresh and crystalline/saline, slightly flinty bouquet of bright and spicy Riesling fruits. Light, lush and round on the palate, this is a filigreed and uplifted Spätlese with saline and crystalline acidity and stimulating grip on the finish. Just-ripe and crunchy, this Spätlese should be cellared for at least another 5 or 6 years. 10% stated alcohol. Natural cork stopper. Tasted in December 2022. (Stephan Reinhardt)

A very elegant riesling Spatlese in spite of the ample juicy stone fruit and jasmine character, then comes considerable power on the mid-weight palate. Very long, compact finish that’s extremely bright and crystal clear. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)

A powerful and compact dry riesling for 2021, the pithy tannins supporting the generous body. Fascinating interplay of herbal, lime and crisp pear character with the bright acidity. With aeration it develops an incense note. From biodynamically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Shows classic lemon-lime Riesling character boosted by alluring nectarine and green apple flavors. A good example of a dry style, with enough fleshiness and fruit character to keep it from being austere. The finish is lined with crushed rock. Drink now through 2028. 8,333 cases made, 700 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)
