As in previous years, C.A.I. tastes close to dry and is a blend of purchased fruit (from smart, committed growers) up and down the Mosel and Saar. This year is particularly interesting as there are some old vine parcels in the blend from the Oberemmeler Altenberg that bring great depth to the wine. According to Lars Carlberg, this old vine parcel may be bottled as a separate wine in 2013; it's that good. This C.A.I. is much more like the 2010 in character than the 2011, although not quite as vigorous and biting as the former. Tasty, tasty Riesling! JFR
Unashamedly easy to enjoy. Plenty of crisp acids but they are gently integrated with sensations of perfectly ripe nectarine. Wildly versatile, eminently tasty, but not a moment goes by while drinking this wine that you don't seriously reflect on the fortuitous mix of elements in the vineyard and the cellar that created such a high level of deep pleasure.
