Winemaker Notes

Aromas reminiscent of roses, white peach, mango, lime-tree blossom, mace, glove and flint stone. Complex mineral structure with a vibrant and tensional acidity, full bodied, juicy and rich.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Strawberry preserves and vanilla icing in the nose of Molitor’s 2009 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese create confectionary expectations for its palate performance that are not disappointed. In addition, decadent lily and heady gardenia perfume seem to hang over this unabashedly sweet Riesling whose buoyancy approaches weightlessness. A lip-licking, quickening streak of salinity helps counteract this lush yet delicate wine’s finishing sweetness. I would lock it away for a decade and then anticipate at least several years of further satisfaction, but those with a sweet tooth will find it more enticing in its youth than do I.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This ripe, forward style is lush and creamy, displaying lots of ginger, peach and sea salt note. Finishes with notes of smoke and apricot. Drink now through 2020. 600 cases made.

Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
