Why We're Buying

Egon Müller Le Gallais Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Auslese is a top tier wine, plain and simple. Not only is it opulent and expressive upon release, but K&L Wines also praised it as a riesling that could "exceed our high expectations as it develops finesse with age." Investors can unlock this white wine's full potential by cellaring it for 20 to 60 years.

The 2018 Auslese from the Braune Kupp is really a lovely wine, with a glaze of beautifully clean botrytis defining the wine on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is a lovely mix of white cherries, pear, lime blossoms, fresh mint, slate, bee pollen and violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and racy in profile, with a creamy core of fruit, lovely mineral underpinnings, fine focus and grip and a long, zesty and lifted finish. Lovely juice. (Drink between 2026-2080)

The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Auslese is warm, ripe and cool on the precise nose that displays fascinating flinty notes of crushed wet stones and fresh lemon oil. The palate is lush, round, intense, salty-piquant and well-concentrated thanks to perfectly dry botrytis. The finish is complex, tight, very long and expressive in its firm, mineral character. A great Kupp with a long life ahead. Tasted from AP 7 in June 2019.(SR)
