From the remarkable craggy steeps of the Jungheld, this is the GG that has me the most excited. He ages it in bottle an extra year, as its sense of coiled power is more of a long distance runner than an early/easy flatterer. The 2018 is what he is selling inside of Germany; he is letting me offer the 2019 anyway…..GG lovers, this is your stop…..!
“The 2019er Trittenheimer Apotheke Jungheld Holzfass, as it is referred to on the central part of the label, is a bone-dry wine (with 3 g/l of residual sugar) made from 80-120-year-old un-grafted vines in this prime south-west-facing sector of the Apotheke and which was fermented and aged in an acacia cask. This lightly yellow-colored wine offers a slightly ample and creamy nose made of pear, grapefruit, cardamom, earthy spices, and floral notes. The wine proves subtly creamy and ample on the palate (without however being overpowering) and leaves a slate-infused touch in the hugely creamy, spicy, and mineral finish. 2024-2034” 92 Mosel Fine Wines
