VDP Grosses Gewächs Tasting -- 2016 Lower and Mid-Mosel Part I: Fritz Haag, Heymann-Löwenstein, Dr. Loosen, J. Wegeler

Generally, it’s a strong year for Mosel Grosses Gewächs wines, although there were a few that I am not commenting on — if I scored them below 88/B, I would want to see the wines again. Mosel producers have greatly improved their skills at making dry Riesling; if you haven’t sampled any in recent years, I suggest that you try a bottle (it need not be GG) from a good producer.

The wines of one of my favorite producers, Clemens Busch, were notably missing from this year’s tasting. I expect that we may see his 2016s at next years GG tasting. (Continue reading here.)
