Winemaker Notes

The fragrance of the Rieslaner Beerenauslese is a balancing act between fresh and dried herbs. Its vibrant fruity sweetness on the palate distinguishes the delicate, long mineral-rich finish.

Organically grown

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
Dense, dried-fruit character - everything from apricot to fig - which is typical for this grape variety and style. Very concentrated, but so bright. Super lush palate, but no hint of heaviness, the finish very long and seductive. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bottled with 10% alcohol, the 2019 Herzog Rieslaner Beerenauelese is precise and enormously concentrated on the spicy and somewhat limey nose. Dense and piquant on the palate, with cooked stone fruit aromas and caramelly notes, this BA is still very sweet, with piquant acidity and a potent finish. Wine to be cellared for at least 10 years and up to 50+ years.
Range: 93-94

Muller-Catoir, Germany
Muller-Catoir Muller-Catoir Estate Winery Image

Family owned since 1774 with 9 generations tending the vines, the winery is now run by Philipp David Catoir. Martin Franzen, hailing from the Mosel, with experience as head of operations at Schlossgut Diel in the Nahe and Gut Nagelsforst in Baden, took over winemaking responsibility from Hans-Günther Schwarz in 2001. In an effort to showcase terroir and varietal character, Müller-Catoir has adopted the following philosophy of winegrowing: “Vines were grown by natural methods with organic fertilization, permanent green cutting that gets more and more radical every summer, and ever-greater selective harvesting with hand-picking of grapes for even the most “basic” kabinett wine – all these measures cannot help but produce only a small yield of wines with a mineral note, a filigree acidity structure and exotic fruit aromas.” The estate began an organic conversion in 2007 and completed their first organic vintage in 2009. The vineyards in Haardt are composed of primary rock (urgestein) and sandstone, with an increasing proportion of gravel lower on the slopes. Vineyards of Gimmeldingen contain more loess and sand, while the vineyards of Mussbach are the most gravelly. Müller-Catoir also bottles several “micro parcels”; one of which, the Breumel in den Mauern, is a monopole inside the Burgergarten which was first planted 700 years ago, and is also one of the oldest vineyards in the Pfalz.

Müller-Catoir was a pioneer of reductive winemaking in Germany. The estate implements a gentle crush, a long skin contact, slow gentle pressing, and then ferments at warmer than customary fermentation temperatures in stainless steel. The wine is racked only once and very late. Müller-Catoir produces wines of outstanding transparency and density, and remains emblematic of Riesling at its most sophisticated.

This sunny and relatively dry region served for many years as a German tourist mecca and was associated with low cost, cheerful wines. But since the 1980s, it has gained a reputation as one of Germany’s more innovative regions, which has led to increased international demand.

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.
