Drinking Egon Muller with Egon Muller (Annam): Alcohol :: 8.5% Opened for 75mins in advanced. Darker golden in the core with light green hue. It is always great to compare young and older Riesling from same producer. German Rieslings are so delicious with their lovely fruits when young that is hard to resist not to drink them young, hence it is very difficult to come across with aged German Rieslings in the market. This 7yrs old Kabinett has developed significant secondary note on both nose and palate, such as soft but expressive kerosene and smokiness with citrus, grapefruits and little touch of honey. The sweetness and primary fruits has mellowed down and revealed complex flavors and mineral on the palate. A little bit lean and smaller scale compared to the 2010 but still with great focus and tension. Medium length finished with earthy, almost nutty aftertaste.
Absolutely stunningly good. Packed with everything you are looking for in a top class mosel(saar) kabinett. Lemons, green fresh apples. On the nose, honny, more towards lime, and even hints some asian spices. As it opens up, white flowers grows up and fills the room. Clearly one kabinett with the most impressive mouthfeel compared to most kabinett, i´ve tasted. very much looking forward to try the 05, 07 and 09.....
New Chapter - 2011 (Imperial Treasure @ Great World City): Alcohol :: 8.5% Lively fresh aromas of smoke, honey citrus, grapefruits, hint of sweet pineapple and secondary aromas of kerosene. Sweet entry with slight creamy mouth feel along with good freshness. Amazing tension on the palate with rich and concentrated sweet yellow fruits, earthiness and mineral freshness that has long, precise finished with citrus peel aftertaste. Pretty impressive for a 04 Kabinett. Buy - Maybe.
