    January 11, 2022 - Nice, long crisp finish

  • PSPatrick wrote: 88 points

    August 20, 2021 - Disgorged 10/19, with a generous dosage of 9 g/L. Light lemon colour, with medium-fine, medium intense perlage. Intense citrus, lemon, grapefruit, biscuit, chalk, and smoke, with medium-fine mousse, lively acidity, and good length of the grapefruit-bitter finish. Good concentration. Lightly creamy texture. Very different from the (presumably) much more recently disgorged yet even smokier and more autolytic bottle I had on vacation about two weeks ago. In many ways, this reminds me of a village-level Riesling still wine and not of sparkling wine. 88+

    August 4, 2021 - At POST Family Resort in Unken/Austria (€39 on the restaurant's wine list). I did not check the back label, but the wine seems to have been disgorged only recently. Stone fruit, citrus, almond, brioche, and smoke, with creamy, medium-fine mousse, good acidity, and good length. Pleasant light bitterness on the finish. Good autolysis character. Has everything a top sparkling wine needs, only lacks integration (and hence harmony) at this point. A year in the cellar might do the trick. Larissa liked it a lot. 89(+)(?)

    March 20, 2021 - Moderately aromatic of green snap peas and yeasty autolysis. Hint of smoky minerality. Light bodied but with great intensity! Asian peat and a bit of quince. Persimmon. Loaded with acid, but perfectly balanced. This is also very saline. Some other, non-fruit flavors such as green snap pea. This is a fantastic bottle of bubbly. 91

    (NV Schloss Gobelsburg Brut Reserve) ($35.00) Still mostly GrüVe, and continues to be silky and classy. The current lot (“L04/12”) will be the last one without a disgorgement date on the label; it’s based on 2009 with 20% reserve wine in the quasi-solera style many Champagne growers also deploy; this one has an exotic fruit note along with its complex herbal tones. Next disgorgement scheduled for July or September depending on need.

Terry Theise Estate Selections

  • By Terry Theise
    2011 Austrian Catalog, 5/1/2011 (link)

    (NV Schloss Gobelsburg Brut Réserve) ($36.00) Now based on 2007 with reserve wine (the last assemblage, i.e., the quasi-solera system employed by Billiot and Peters among others), disgorged late 2010 – disgorgement dates “are coming,” Michi assures me. The aromas are more sedate, less overtly fruity than before; the palate is silky and gracious, the mousse unusually delicate and the whole wine is refined, as befits a couer de cuvée, which in fact this is. I don’t know when it’s ever been better.
