Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben, Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Auslese *** Mosel 2003

Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten 2003 #1

Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.

This is AP#8.

Saturated green-gold.   Panoramic on entry, the wide-angle lens of ’03.  There shall be no talk of weightlessness in this scalded vintage.  Conversations instead turn to kerosene, swollen mid-palates, exotic fruit with a touch of game, botrytis-laded overtones.  Fat and full with enough acidity to both finish the wine and justify continuing to make space for this in the cellar.  Now – 2020+.
