Tasting Notes

The 2nd steepest vineyard in Europe—the Bremmer Calmont is the very steepest, also on the Mosel. This is also THE greatest unknown Cru in Germany. The wine is a riot of every iridescent green thing in creation; it’s leaning tart, but the sheer force of this wildly herbal Chartreuse-y extract carries a lizard-balance, blinking its glassy eyes. No other wine like it. — Terry Theise
