2018 Le Gallais (Egon Müller) Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese Riesling Saar

SKU #1446543 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese (AP #5) offers a very clear, fine, ripe, floral-scented bouquet of weathered slate and bright, ripe fruits. Sweet yet fine and fresh on the palate, with crystalline and sharp acidity, this is a generous, mouth-filling but very fine and elegant Spätlese with lots of charm and finesse. The finish is very intense, long and salty and reveals a firm mineral structure and tension. Quite sweet. Tasted in June 2019.(SR)  (8/2019)

92 points John Gilman

 The 2018 Braune Kupp Spätlese includes about twenty percent botrytis this year, according to Veronika Lintner, as the vineyard is down close to the river and prone to morning fogs. It is a very gentle touch of botrytis, as the wine is very pure and vibrant, offering up a nose of pear, white cherries, slate, bee pollen, a touch of wild yeasts and a lovely floral topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is crisp, fullish and complex, with lovely detail and slate undertow, fine focus and excellent cut and grip on the bouncy finish. This is really good, and given that it was only bottled a couple of weeks ago, I may only be seeing part of the picture here! (Drink between 2023-2065)  (4/2019)

K&L Notes

92pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 05 19. The 2018er Wiltinger braune Kupp Riesling Spätlese was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (85 g/l). It proves quite restrained at first and only gradually reveals its intense and ripe nose of pineapple, mango, almond cream, papaya, plum, candied peach, and orange blossom. Bold and ripe flavors of pear, quince and apricot make for a very smooth and rich feel on the creamy palate. The wine proves intense and powerful in the long finish and leaves the impact of an Auslese in the after-taste. This opulent and quite baroque wine will need a solid decade (if not more) to integrate its sweetness and develop its refined side. 2028-2048." (06/2019)
