Every bottle drunk of Müller-Catoir is a love letter. There is a visceral experience with these wines, like a pumice stone, a rough surface to a smooth finish. These aren't razor edged wines, forcing a point of view, they are edgy with secrets to share with those who are willing to listen. This historic estate has had hundreds of years and plenty of talented winemakers have garnered it critical acclaim. But never have they rested on their laurels, even now, with some of the most careful farming and strictest selection of grapes from anywhere. Whether dry or sweet, Riesling or Pinot Noir, young or old the stark minerality of these wines will bring you back for more.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Mango and lightly singed caramelized pineapple dominate on the nose and the silken, glycerol-slicked palate of this luscious offering. Muskmelon, white peach syrup and almond extract add decadent, rich but juicy elements to the mix, leading to an impressively sustained finish, albeit one surprisingly restrained for Rieslaner and in which the grape’s naturally high acidity is not at all obvious as tang or brightness, but does serve as a spring to generate animation. “This fruit reached 108 degrees Oechsle but with almost no shriveling” – let alone botrytis – observed Franzen." -Vinous

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!
