Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Absolutely pure in flavor, harmonious and well-proportioned in its architecture, this TBA seems lighter than air, yet packs intense flavors of apricot, lemon candy and mineral. It maintains a sense of terroir, despite its sweetness. Great length.

Georg Breuer, Germany

Georg Breuer was founded in 1880 by partners of the venerable wine shipping firm Scholl & Hillebrand, thereafter wholly owned by Georg Breuer and passed on to his sons Bernhard and Heinrich, the current proprietors. During the 1980's and 1990's the estate was carefully expanded from 20 acres to its present 60 acres, in the steepest, most well-drained vineyards of the Rheingau communes of Rudesheim and Rauenthal. Co-author of authoritative books on Germany's wine regions, Bernhard Breuer is respected internationally as a tireless defender of German viticultural integrity.

Practically one long and bucolic hillside along the northern bank of the Rhein River, the Rheingau stretches the entirety of the river’s east to west spread from Hocheim to Rüdesheim.

Variations in elevation, soil types, and proximity to the Rhine cause great diversity in Rheingau Riesling. Some of the better Rieslings in warmer years come from the cooler and breezier sites at higher elevations. In cooler years, sites closer to the river may perform better.

In the village of Rüdesheim, slopes are steep and soils are stony slate with quartzite; Rieslings are rich and spicy, intense in stone fruit and show depth and character with age. World class Rieslings come from farther east on the river through Geisenheim, Johannisberg, Winkel, Oestrich and past Erbach as well, where soils of loess, sand, and marl alternate. Long-living, floral-driven and mineral-rich Rieslings come from the best of these sites.

Rheingau growers became early activists in promoting the dry style of Riesling, low yields and the classification of top vineyards, or Erstes Gewächs (first growths). Proximity to the metropolitan markets of Mainz, Wiesbaden, and Frankfurt keeps Rheingau in high reputation. While dry wines are the style here, Rheingau isn’t short of some amazing Auslesen, Beerenauslesen, and Trockenbeerenauslesen.

Rheingau doesn’t mess with many other grapes—in fact 79% of its total area is dedicated to Riesling. But it produces some fine Pinot noir, especially concentrated in Assmannshausen, a bit farther west from Rüdesheim.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
