A. J. Adam takes us to Dhron, just off the much-beaten path of the Mosel river. Dhron is named for a river that flows into the Mosel. Its steep, slatey vineyards form the tributary's northern bank.

The sites are steeper and at higher altitude than most of Mosel. The wines are a little wispier and saltier. The fruit is cooler and whiter.

Adam is Dhron's undisputed star. He makes extraordinary dry Rieslings and Kabinetts from Hofberg, the top site in Dhron.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93 June 2019
"The 2018 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese is from a single terrace in the Laychen parcel that was picked earlier than the dry Goldtröpfchen. It was vinified in stainless steel and opens with a clear, piquant and flinty nose. This is a gorgeously lush, fresh, pure, crystalline, piquant and persistently salty Goldtröpfchen with a long, stimulating finish. It's lean, sharp as a knife and moderate in alcohol, and the sweetness is well absorbed. It was picked at 89° Oechsle, which leads to a fine, highly stimulating, crunchy Spätlese."

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
