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."
