Early 21st-Century German Greats

Share

Below is a collection of wines from the heady, sepia-tinted days of the first decade of the 21st century, from some familiar favorites. A lot of them in terrific drinking shape now - we've been cherry-picking some of these ourselves since they arrived recently and enjoying them thoroughly. Jonathan Kemp

Dönnhoff 2010 Nahe Kreuznacher Krotenpfuhl Riesling Kabinett

Krötenpfuhl is on a south-facing slope overlooking the Nahe and has warm clay and loess soils with many heat-retaining pebbles and small stones. This is one of the most intense Kabinetts I've had the pleasure to taste, with acid like a laser and the fruit showing itself as just about the perfect essence of fresh green apple. Vividly alive and expressive. -jfr

Prüm, J.J. 2001 Mosel Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese

This is Auslese to bury deep in the cellar. The perfect gift for the Riesling lover that is looking for a wine that will be compelling either in 2011 or 2031. If enjoying now, be sure to give it a lengthy decant, as I found this really hit its stride after about 4 hours open. Not heavy but expansive, mouth-filling and fresh with perfectly balanced acid. Notes of pear, sweet lime, succulent yellow and white peach, this is just so delicious. Prum at its finest, and one of the most thrilling bottles I've recently tasted. -jfr
