2001 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese #10
2001 is one of my favourite Mosel vintages.
Tasted from a pristine bottle. Still youthful color. Bubbles from carbon dioxide in the glass. (I had observed this many times with this producer.)
Awesome fragrance immediately after opening: citrus fruits, peach, some saltiness and smoky minerality.
Juicy, fruity, harmonious and refreshing on the palate. Lively but moderate acidity. Prüm-like seductiveness.
Unfortunately getting softer which airing. In my view this makes the wine losing freshness and balance. There's a yogurt-ish fruit character and too much sweetness once the carbon dioxide is gone.
I think this wine is at his peak, I'd drink it up in the next 5-10 years.
After all it's still a solid product. Actually I like the soil notes from Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr very much. I just have difficulties to like this producer's style. To be precise: I adore what this domaine produced up to vintage 1990.
