It’s from very old vines in the highest (400 meters), steepest (45 degrees) and most perfectly exposed (due south) part of this famous and historic grand cru – right by the top Boxler holdings.

The soil here is granite, and the resulting wine is the smoothest, most flowing and beautiful of the Schaal grand crus. As Schaal recommends, this would be the best of his wines for rich, creamy seafood dishes.

It’s also “bone dry,” but as usual, comes across more fruit forward and even honied in its highly concentrated richness.

If I had to pick only one wine to enlighten someone who thinks they “don’t like Riesling,” this would be it.

Last year’s Sommerberg earned 96 points from the Wine Enthusiast, which said:

A totally floral touch, almost of elderflower, plays on the nose before aromatic citrus hints take over. On the taut concentrated palate, they express themselves as tangy grapefruit, vivid ripe lemon and subtle Meyer lemon. The structure underneath them is crystalline, pure and fine. The finish is a dry sublime sense of lemon purity. This has real lasting impact. Drink now through 2040.

This 2018 is similar, but even finer!
