Highly Rated 2017 Riesling from Young Gun Julian Haart

Highly Rated 2017 Riesling from Young Gun Julian Haart

Haart 2017 header
Outstanding Riesling from a young master
Based in Piesport, in the heartland of the Mosel Valley, Julian Haart is the young star of German winemaking. His wine education could scarcely have been more illustrious, working with Klaus Peter Keller for three years and Egon Muller for a year, as well as stints with Heymann-Löwenstein and Emrich-Schönleber. 

On his return to Piesport, he took over a small half-hectare plot in the Wintricher Ohligsberg planted with 50-year-old vines, followed by a parcel planted in 1910 in the Piesporter Goldtropfchen. 

The estate has grown to a little more than four hectares and this is, roughly, where Julian wants it to stay. Part of the joy of winemaking, for Julian, is doing everything himself, or with his wife Nadine, or with some friends. This is vineyard work, and winemaking, at the most human scale. Nearly everything must be done by hand - most of the vineyards are steep as hell and most of them are terraced. Even walking through them is a bit hazardous.

His goal is to make superlative dry wines, but they are brilliant and elegant across the entire range.  He is striving for vineyard expression rather than just fruit; fermentation is allowed to start naturally, and the cellar temperature is kept at a steady 20ºC. Terroir shines through!

So much praise has been heaped upon the young Julian Haart in recent vintages that it's hard to decide which sound-bites to pick out. Here's one...

"There is general consensus in the informed wine world that the former star pupil of Klaus Peter Keller is one of the greatest talents of the German wine industry in the last 20 years."
Michael Schmidt (JancisRobinson.com)

Today we offer three wines from the top 2017 vintage. All are available now.

Piesporter Riesling (dry) 2017
$57.95
37 bottles available

harrt piesporter 300 James Suckling: Still a bit closed, but with aeration, aromas of ripe peaches berries and herbs emerge. Serious concentration and great subtlety at the deep and dry finish. Better from 2019. It shows excellent aging potential. 94 Points

Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese 2017
$68.95
24 bottles available

Haart Gold Spatlese 300 James Suckling: Slightly funky from the wild ferment, but this also has concentrated peaches and blackcurrants. Coupled with succulent sweetness, this makes a serious statement. Needs some time to open up, but it will be very seductive from 2019. Drink or hold. This has long-term aging potential. 94 Points

Goldtropfchen Riesling Auslese 2017
$95.95
20 bottles available

Haart Gold Aulese 300 James Suckling: It's really hard to say if this could be more precise or brilliant. A wonderful fresh-cut pineapple character with salty minerality, which is very unusual for this category. Yes, it has some sweetness, but it makes you want to drink this with some Sichuan chicken! Drink or hold. Very limited production due to the frost damage.

Cacheux Jacques
Cacheux Jacques Reas label
Domaine Jacques Cacheux 2016 Vosne-Romanee 
3-Bottle Pack

There is nowhere in Burgundy where demand exceeds supply more than in Vosne-Romanee. Finding wines is not easy, and in a great year like 2016, when production was tiny, it becomes even more difficult.
 
Domaine Jacques Cacheux is just 7 hectares in size but their holdings include a fine selection of Vosne-Romanee vineyards which they make with an elegant hand. Their holdings include an unique array of lieux-dits and this afternoon we are pleased to present a 3-Bottle Pack of the 2016's.
 
Each Pack comprises 1 bottle each of the following single vineyard Vosne-Romanee:
 
Vosne-Romanee Les Genavrieres 2016
Vosne-Romanee Les Ormes 2016
Vosne-Romanee Aux Reas 2016
 
I have not tasted the wines but I expect they will be aromatic and very stylish in the Jacques Cacheux style. They are always refined and lovely to drink.
We only have 6 Packs left.

The Price per 3-Bottle Pack is $365.00

To order email tracey@grandmillesime.com.au.
