A very distinctive dried-pear and herbal nose. It shows a great balance of restrained power and cool elegance on the palate. A long herb and mineral finish. This wine will do all the things you’d expect of a top Chablis!
Delicately dry, with spice, tarragon and crunchy pear notes buoyed by lively clementine zest acidity. Silky in texture and smooth on the palate, but still a bit wound up because of its age. Features hints of salted butter and candied citrus on the tangy yet sumptuous finish. (AZ, Web-2019)
Vinified partly in fuders (25%) and aged on the lees until April, the 2017 Brauneberger Riesling Trocken "J" is fine and yeasty on the elegant, balanced, beautifully flinty nose with still-reduced fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, very elegant, refined and refreshing dry Riesling that comes almost entirely from the Juffer and Juffer Sonnenuhr. This beautifully lush wine reveals all you can expect from fine Mosel Riesling: finesse, elegance and balance. Tasted in March 2019. (SR)
The Brauneberger “J” Trocken hails from a blend of fruit from the Juffer vineyard and the Juffer-Sonnenuhr and the wine is excellent out of the blocks in 2017. The nose wafts from the glass in a sophisticated blend of grapefruit, lime peel, salty slate minerality, wild yeasts, a touch of herbs and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, crisp and complex, with excellent backend mineral drive, a good core, bright acids and impressive cut and grip on the long and classy finish. I really like this a lot, and the only caveat is that the 2016 version tasted right before it was already showing a bit of permanent reduction from its screwcap. With that in mind, I might be inclined to drink the 2017 version very early on, which is a pity, as this has the depth and structure to age gracefully if under natural cork. But, it will not disappoint in its youth! 91+
