Tasting Notes

Reflecting slightly deeper soils with more fine particulate slate than the A.P. #6, the Haags’ opulent and baroque 2004 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese A.P. #10 smells of melon, nougat, and honey. In the mouth, its high-fat content and candied personality, when combined with Mosel minerality, result in an impression, not just of nougat and marzipan, but of salt water taffy. If that sounds over-the-top to you, yes, no doubt some tasters will find this gaudy and overdone in opulence. But at the same time, the wine manages to be delicate in weight and deploys its abundant flavor as well as sweetness in a finish of crystalline clarity in which a juicy citrus character emerges to leave the palate refreshed and ready – if not indeed yearning – for the next sip.

Score: 92
