Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The epitome of refinement, the 2001 Riesling Auslese Graacher Domprobst A.P. #0902 reveals aromas of Johnson's baby powder, flowers, perfume, and underlying earthy notes. A wine of magnificent depth, it has a penetrating character of purity, breadth, and focus. Rich, yet impeccably balanced, its tangy flavor profile is composed of an assortment of minerals, citrus fruits, quartz, honeysuckle, and white flowers. Drink this ethereal, glorious wine between 2008 and 2025+.

Weingut Willi Schaefer, Germany
Weingut Willi Schaefer Winery Image
Weingut Willi Schaefer is a small 10 acres family winery that dates back to the year 1121. They produce exclusively Riesling, because they believe this grape is qualitatively the best that thrives on the weathered Devonian slate soil.

Willi Schaefer and his son, Christoph, aim to make their wines as gently as possible, treating the fruit, must and resultant wines with respect. As such, all their wines are treated in exactly the same way in the vineyard and the winery.

The vineyard parcels are located in Graacher Dompropst and Graacher Himmelreich, as well as in Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The plots are situated on steep slate slopes and consist of up to 100-year-old, ungrafted vines.

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
