Johannes Selbach is beyond a doubt one of the great producers in the wine world. But, being based in Germany (and not being called Egon Müller), their wines are available at totally reasonable prices. Usually we can stock many of them year-round. Possibly our favorite Mosel estate, Selbach is renowned for his ability to take a snapshot of a vineyard at one place in time with every bottling he makes. The Selbach family has been making wine in the Mosel for 400 hundred years, making them one of the oldest winemaking houses in the region. But the wines are not old-fashioned; in fact, they exemplify everything we love about modern day Mosel wines: racy minerality, finesse and beautifully balanced acidity.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Verbena-laced apple and white grapefruit on the nose project both candied and fresh aspects, setting the stage for a palate performance whose zest and penetrating brightness come as a surprise in the context of this vintage and collection. And yet, there is simultaneously an alluring (as well as more predictable) hint of textural creaminess. The long finish is tongue-tingling yet persistently rich in its evocation of apple and quince jellies." -David Schildknecht

Robert Parker

RP 94
"The 2018 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese opens flinty, cool and precise on the bright and intensely scented nose, showing no signs of botrytis but super bright and healthy fruit intertwined with flinty-spicy slate aromas. Lush and round but also racy and piquant on the clear and super precise palate, this is a highly attractive and digestible Auslese with a crystalline, stimulatingly salty and frisky finish with grip and tension. A terrific 2018." -Stephan Reinhardt

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!
