Lot #255. Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben Ürziger Würzgarten Kranklay Riesling Auslese *** #09 2015

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93 VM.
"Very ripe kiwi, Persian melon and banana wreathed in decadent lily perfume are accompanied on a lush, subtly oily palate by a welcome tingling counterpoint of kiwi seeds and ginger. And for all of its decadently, drippingly ripe and lush midpalate impression, this finishes with captivating delicacy, its wafting floral perfume complemented by lusciously pure fruit and subtle spice. Eymael reports that the fruit for this was around one-third botrytis-affected. (Apparently he and Christoffel have not yet caught up with the recent official registration of this site under its cadaster designation of “In der Kranklei” – or perhaps their attitude is to disregard that development unless the authorities question their label!)" Vinous, Jun 2017
Provenance: The Zauberberg Cellar
Notes: OC.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $250
