2004 Müller-Catoir Mußbacher Eselshaut Riesling Kabinett

Love M-C wines. Still fresh, has a dry mouthfeel with little sweetness - just what I wanted. Paired well with Thai Satay dish.

Advanced color, with plenty of interesting things that come with age showing on the nose, though for my palate, just too sweet - without enough supporting/lifting acidity. Glad to have tried it, and went especially well with Bistro Ralph's crème brûlée.

PnP, served non-blind.

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): This is definitely not as good as, and quite different from the previous bottle I had. Spicy, sweet&sour, peachy. Rich and acidic but not full and panoramic. Peach and citrus finish. :(

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): My bottle. Oxidized nose - smoked, dried, nutty. Better on the palate but still somewhat tired - apricots, citrus, nuts, burnt - ok. Orange peel and apricot finish. Nose - 4/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 15/20.

Another spectacularly great showing from one of my favourite Rieslings. Not much to add to my earlier notes. The usual kaleidoscopic array of fruit, stone, florality, and developing smokiness that I've come to expect from this, and absolutely incredible acidity and power on the palate. It's one of those rare white wines that actually seems more focused and precise as it warms up past cellar temperature, with the flavours deepening but the acidity never letting up. So deep and long. Glad I still have 8 bottles remaining.

May Lunch Club Tasting: Floral, pear, orange peel, slightest touch of honey. Has plenty of fruit sweetness and it has filled out since the last time I tried it, while still having the same good acid profile. Powerful but cleansed by the acidity. Developing well, still has some time left to go to hit its peak.

Nose: complex, ethereal, but not the main attraction; Palate: Holy crap! Apple, lime, grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruits, flint, lemon, basically everything. Amazing acidity, sugar to spare, and a crazy-long finish of grapefruit, mineral, saline. Excellent.

Choucroute Garnie at Sarah and Jonathan's (Theater District, Manhattan, NYC): My 375ml. An old friend who never disappoints. Nose of molasses, apricots, figs, tangerine/mandarins, spice - fruitcake. Zing, 'it burns!' on entry - massive acid, figs, apricots, mandarins - marmalade - searing the back of the throat. Ripples of power, sweet as hell but not even a tny bit cloying. The finish is just silly: marmalade and mandarin burn and spices. Stunning. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 18/20.

Greet Adira and small BYO at our place (Clinton Hill, Brooklyn): Brought by Josh K. Dark brown - to the point where it seems to darken the room when poured. The nose is potent and citric - quince, mandarin, molasses, dark spices, citrus extract, dried apricots? Very deep and still. Mustard seed. Sweet, sour and mustardy on the palate - apricot, figs, molasses, orange peel. Not 100% integrated on the palate. Finish of molasses and apricots with nice acid. This is a little bit of a bruiser, enough to keep it from being with the top of the MC wines, but it is still excellent. Thanks Josh! Nose - 5-5.5/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1-1.5/2 = 16.5-17.5/20.

Popped and poured. This is a light yellow, almost urine-colored wine. On the nose, I get honeycomb, marigolds, and some light petrol. The mouth is fascinating -- crisp, sweet, and waxy -- all leaving some lingering delight on the back of the mouth. This is a very enjoyable wine, one that I think is better served cold. 93 points.

2003 Müller-Catoir Gimmeldinger Schlössel Rieslaner Spätlese

Pfalz more

5/3/2015 - Vintomas wrote: 89 points

Full, slightly golden, yellow colour, a bit of spritz. Nose with ripe yellow fruit including peach and some tropical fruit, some citrus notes including zest, a bit of honey, some flowery notes, hints of minerality and development. Off-dry (perhaps "semi-sweet" is a better description, since the feeling is Auslese rather than Spätlese), citrus, mixed yellow fruit notes including tropical fruit, good acidity, a bit of spicy notes, and fruity and slightly spicy aftertaste. A slight alcoholic note (the label says 11.5%) makes itself present mid-palate and lingers in the aftertaste. It isn't at all disturbing, but it makes this wine seem less like a German Riesling (which it isn't). The balance on the palate reminds me a bit of an Alsatian Vendange Tardive. Comes across as fully developed and while it isn't at all tired, it might have been more interesting some years ago, 89 p.

5/2/2015 - Hans Lukas Likes this wine: 86 points

helles Gelb, dezente Nase, etwas Birne. Geschmack: Birne, Ananas, etwas Kräuter, trocken, moderater Restzucker, spürbare Rieslingsäure. Durchaus schön zu trinken. Für einen Ortswein etwas unkompliziert. Andere Weine von Müller-Catoir fand ich auf interessante Weise sperriger und fordernder (Herrenletten Grauburgunder). Angenehm altmodisches Etikett. Pfälzer Klassik. Obwohl dieser Wein überhaupt nicht "altmodisch" daherkommt. Kann ich mir gut zu Saumagen vorstellen.

LH german Riesling, med body, peach apricot honey comb some floral some minerals flushed down with golden honey water. Good acidity n sweet balance. The acidity n sweetness gives a good bite spicy to Sichuan food, leaving you refreshed.

Rieslings, Rhones, Richebourg, and more at The Bristol (The Bristol, Chicago): Doesn't show quite the complexity of the HGS-era Scheurebes, but this is damn good nonetheless. Packed with ripe passionfruit, nectarine, and pink grapefruit flavours with honeyed accents and a bright acid spine beneath keeping it very well balanced. Lovely wine, very fun to drink, with a glass disappearing rather quickly.

Salil does Chicago; 4/16/2015-4/19/2015 (Chicago, IL): #22-11, 9.5% abv. From half bottle. Moderately pale colour. Extremely pronounced passion fruit on the nose and palate. Very floral, but dense at the same time. Think of that orange-coloured passion-fruit sauce you put on desserts. This would function as a more than suitable replacement for that in a pinch. Exuberant and long. With a bit of air, this became even more intense, with the tropical fruit completely exploding out of the glass. A bit of mango started to start popping up too.

Eiswein trinity (Adrian's place, Chicago): Consistent, exotic, and flamboyant as ever. A burst of ripe pink grapefruit, papaya, lychee, and countless other tropical fruits up front, turning a bit more floral and herbal with air as sage, lavender, and minty notes develop on the nose. There's plenty of sweetness here that's matched perfectly by that powerful '01 acid spine, and it has that signature HGS combination of flamboyant ripeness matched with incredible focus and precision.

Salil does Chicago; 4/16/2015-4/19/2015 (Chicago, IL): #13-02, 10.5% abv. LSD in a bottle. Intense lychee aromatics, followed by a kaleidoscopic array of spice and fruit. A light bit of funk on the nose helps keep things interesting. The palate is moderately sweet, and carries that same kaleidoscopic character: green herbs, sweet apples, lychee, pineapple, stone fruit, pretty much everything. Balls-to-the-wall insanity.

This bottle was fabulous, despite a cork that crumbled into bits. It showed apricot and pineapple fruit, lots of baking spice aromas and flavors, and bright acidity that was balanced by the reasonable levels of sweetness. Incredibly drinkable on its own, and a lovely partner to mildly spiced lamb stir fry. Great for drinking now.

Went very, very fast. Quality exceptional, the only critique I'd have was that I couldn't find much of the typical gewurz profile here, it drank almost like a Rieslaner Eiswein. Not that M-C Rieslaner is bad :-)

PNP. Color straw. Nose explodes from the glass with honey suckle, melons some grassy notes and minerals. Swishing shows really bright acid that stops short of scorching. Long finish. Tasted blind I would have totally guessed New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. Only a few continents away.....
