SAAR RIESLING CREMANT BRUT [09 14] (LAUE90212A)
Tastes as a sparkling Riesling should: fresh and vibrant with good weight and balance. The mousse is fine and gentle, and there is good length and power.
1992 RIESLING BRUT NATUR Reserve (zero dosage) Disgorged 2016 (LAUE92092A)
Strictly for purists, this zero dosage fizz has the austerity one would expect,but it is beautifully balanced and fresh. There is a lovely biscuity nose,gentle citrus and saline mineral flavours and a lovely long finish.
1991 RIESLING BRUT RESERVE [21 12] Disgorged 2016 (LAUE92091A)
Rather more forgiving, the small dosage lends roundness and richness. Thefruit is fresh and expressive, and it fine and long.
2017 SAAR RIESLING Fass 16 [16 18] (LAUE06217A)
Fruity, forward and bright, a lean smoky mineral streak and a fresh salty finish deliver a wine punching well above its weight.
2017 KUPP Fass 18 GG [18 18] (LAUE32217A)
From the estate 's warmest site, a steep west-facing slope directly on the river. This is a complex wine: there is forward, peachy fruit tinged with fresh green flavours, bright acidity and a powerful lingering mineral presence on the finish.
2016 KUPP Fass 18 GG [18 17] (LAUE32216A)
More for the long haul: there is a steely note evident here that shuts down the fruit, which will only resolve with a little time. The potential is great: this is a dense, complex wine of great elegance, with bright juicy fruit, brooding smoky minerality and a juicy, pithy, salty finish. Drink 2019 ' 2032
2015 KUPP Fass 18 GG [18 16] (LAUE32215A)
Bright, elegant and intense, this has a perfect balance of ripe yellow fruit, juicy acidity and a long mineral finish.
2017 SCHONFELS Fass 11 GG [11 18] (LAUE34217A)
A beautifully smooth and vibrant wine with bright citrus fruit, melting salty mineral flavours and a juicy long finish. There is everything to like here: it is harmonious, effortless and seamless.
2016 SCHONFELS Fass 11 GG [11 17] (LAUE34216A)
A very smooth, elegant and accessible wine of great purity and finesse. T'he fruit is ripe and there is a delicate mineral vein with bright citrus acidity. A long complex finish combines clear notes of peach, slightly bitter and salty minerals and a lovely piquant acidity. Drink 2018 ' 2032
2015 SCHONFELS Fass 11 GG [11 16] (LAUE34215A)
The fruit is a little richer than in the Kupp, and it is matched by intense pure mineral flavours. There is an appealing lightness and delicacy, and a very smooth fine finish.
2014 SCHONFELS Fass 11 GG [11 15] (LAUE34214A)
Beautifully pure and vibrant, with exotic spice notes. There is juicy intensity, but it remains very smooth, elegant and ethereally light throughout, finishing on a fine salty mineral note.
2017 SAARFEILSER Fass 13 GG [13 18] (LAUE36217A)
The first impression is of fresh green and yellow fruit and bright lemon flavours, but then the structure of the wine emerges: it is taut and vibrant, brimming with energy and power and given definition by a fine, very smooth minerality. Best put aside for a while.
2016 SAARFEILSER Fass 13 GG [13 17] (LAUE36216A)
The most forward of Lauer GGs: warm rich and very ripe soft yellow fruit balanced by a firm backbone of brisk acidity leading to a smooth sweet-sour finish. Drink 2018 - 2032
2015 SAARFEILSER Fass 13 GG [13 16] (LAUE36215A)
From an impossibly steep vineyard directly on the river, this is a tight mineral-driven wine of enormous intensity and focus. There is a lovely core of ripe citrus fruit and a long finish.
2017 KUPP Kabinett Fass 8 [08 18] (LAUE40217A)
As always a clean, bright and pure wine from the Kupp, with refreshing citrus fruit and a delicious salty mineral seam emerging on the finish.
2016 AYLER Kabinett Fass 8 [08 17] (LAUE40216A)
Lots of zing as usual here, with energetic lemon fruit but also a touch of riper golden-yellow, which adds some softness, and a fresh and vigorous finish. A classic Kabinett, light and pure, that will give pleasure for twenty years and more.
2013 AYLER Kabinett Fass 8 [08 14] (LAUE40213A)
Bright and zingy, with enormous energy. Lemon, lime and minerals in perfect balance. Saar Kabinett as it should be.
2017 LAMBERTSKIRCH Kabinett [14 18] (LAUE41217A)
The Lambertskirch vineyard, downriver from the Schonfels, was planted to fruit trees when Florian Lauer purchased it in 2010. He believes it to be a great site, and it certainly has the necessary: a south-facing steep slope of very rocky grey slate. The wine bears this out: it has fresh cool green notes, and a zingy pithy quality, as well as great length.
2016 AYLER Spätlese Fass 7 [07 17] (LAUE44216A)
Picked from the same parcels a week after the Kabinett. Ripe golden grapes give lovely rich fruit redolent of ripe mirabelles, balanced by a vibrant, juicy finish with a mineral kick.
