Tasting Notes

It means fossil-bearing limestone, not what you think it means. It’s a common soil in this part of the Rhineland; Boxler’s GC Sommerberg is largely Muschelkalk, for example. It’s one of my very favorite among our CORE-LIST wines, but perhaps it’s too expressive and spicy to be ingratiating. 2015 is a fine rich vintage, showing star-anise and clove and mint and mineral; taut but not tense; generous but not sprawling. — Terry Theise
