2020 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett

93 Points John Caro
In stock
An absolute delight, this classic Mosel Riesling is refreshing and lighter-bodied with plenty of interest. That Mosel minerality comes through effortlessly with all kinds of delicate fruit and a whiff of sweetness that disappears on the finish. Gorgeous with or without food, this is a pedigree Kabinnett to drink now or cellar.

Its Origins

The Haag family has been in wine for just a little while - since 1605, to be precise - and over that time they have been instrumental in the development of Brauneberger, an area that has been recognised as one of the Mosel’s best since the sixth century. At the helm today is the youthful Oliver Haag, whose father Wilhelm (son of Fritz) became recognised as a Riesling world leader, awarded the deceptively simple title of Winegrower of the Year in 1994. Oliver himself has at his back a full oenological training as well as extensive experience with a number of leading Riesling producers. With results so superb they effectively define a modern classic style of Mosel Riesling, it seems clear that the Haag family’s future in wine may be as sure as it’s past.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Enthusiast, Anna Lee C. Iijima (2019 vintage)

"Seductive notes of petrichor and struck slate introduce this svelte, green-fruited sip. There's just a whisper of sweetness here rounding out electric shocks of lime acidity and a lean, steely finish. It's delicious young but should stay at peak through 2027 at least hold longer still." Drink 2021 - 2027

89-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Stephan Reinhardt (2019 vintage)

"The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett is very clear and flinty on the still-reductive yet very precise and spring-like nose. Juicy and light on the palate, this is an intense, fruity, salty-piquant and stimulating Kabinett with the gorgeous fruit of the Juffer. Tasted as an unfinished and pretty sulfured sample in April 2020." Drink 2025 - 2045
