Which 2002 Riesling should I open for the Wine Focus?

by JC (NC) » Wed Feb 20, 2013 1:48 pm

On hand I have 2002 J.J. Christoffel-Erben Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese (both Salil and David Bueker have notes posted on CellarTracker on this wine), 2002 von Shubert Maximin Grunhauser Abstberg Riesling Spatlese and 2002 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Auslese.

Before I open one of these, I will be reporting on a recent vintage Leitz wine I have already consumed. The Leitz was a little disappointing to me (probably far too young) so I want to get more enjoyment from the next Riesling I open.

the Christoffel
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

That's the direction I was leaning so I will open it this week.
