2006 Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Spätlese (Germany, Nahe)

Germany, Nahe, Riesling, White Wine

Very good wine in and of itself. The night we drank it, it got spanked by an amazing 2007 Zind Humbrecht Brand Riesling, 2002 Dom Perignon, and the 1999 La Chapelle. Fair amount of residual sugar in this dictates that this be aged for quite some time, as food pairings are somewhat difficult at this stage. Apple, honey, melon and peach orchard flavors. Nice acidity, but maybe a touch too plump for me at this stage.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
