Description

Steve Tanzer s International Data Base tasting notes:
2001 Leiwener Laurentiuslay Riesling Auslese ($31): Honeysuckle and pear are prominent in the nose, as they were with the Laurentiuslay Spatlese. If anything, though, there is an even more delicate, rarefied sense of fruit and slate on exhibit here. The feel is glossy without being oily, the flavors firm in their underlying slatiness yet both juicy and honeyed. Fascinating and long. The aim here was to assemble both the best botrytis berries and the best gold-green fruit. By its analysis, this wine is virtually indistinguishable from a Ritsch Auslese which at least on this occasion expressed its utterly different terroir in a rather broodingly stony way. 92
2001 Leiwener Laurentiuslay Riesling Spatlese ($20): This comes from the middle slopes of the Laurentiuslay. Smelling of honeysuckle and fresh ripe pear. the wine comes onto the palate with gloss and fat, yet also with delicacy of fruit and subtle slatiness. There follows a fascinating interplay of slate, spice, lees and fruit here amid which one becomes aware of a very positive honeyed glow of botrytis. The finish is almost ethereal in its sense of slate suspended on a delicate raft of fruit. 92
Bought En Premier back in 2002/3 and sat in my cellar for the duration. The ullage on 1 Bt is 4cm the other 2 are under 1.5cm
