Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Ungeheuer Beerenauslese Riesling (Pfalz)

Unlike many BAs, which can often be dominated by dried-apricot/botrytis notes, this one also displays ripe melon flavors and a distinct salty minerality. It’s intense and sweet without going over the top, finishing with tremendous length and verve. Aging this wine 50 years isn’t out of the question.

Eugen Müller 2004 Forster Stift Eiswein Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $77

There’s great purity of fruit here in the wine’s sweet flavors of candied pineapple and fresh apricot balanced by mouthwatering acidity. It’s intense, concentrated stuff, finishing long and sticky.

Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Kirchenstück Auslese Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $35

Amazing minerality in such a ripe wine. This boasts an almost smoky, salty intensity to its aromas, mystically combined with hints of honeyed fruit. The result is sweet but not overly so, and the minerality comes to the fore again on the finish, joined by notes of green apple. Should prove to be long lived; drink now–2025 or so.

Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Kichenstück Cyriakus Spätlese Trocken Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $41

From an old clone yielding smaller berries and having a longer hang time, this is even more minerally than Müller’s regular Kirchenstück spätlese, showing a briny aspect to the minerality and bringing in more intensity, including passion fruit and a sweetness reminiscent of roasted root vegetables. Ends on lingering notes of honey and lime.

Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Ungeheuer Spätlese Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $31

The Müller family has coaxed incredible fruit into this wine, which is packed with aromas of white peaches, citrus and spring flowers. Flavors favor honeyed orange segments and ripe peaches. And lest one forget its origins, there’s a minerally edge to the finish that balances all of the sweetness and fruit.

Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Pechstein Spätlese Feinherb Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $35

Bottled at 11 g/l of residual sugar, this tastes pretty dry, the sugar admirably balanced by crisp, lime-like acids and a dry minerally note. It’s plump and round in the mouth, where it develops some melon and spice nuances, but retains an intense rainwater minerality throughout.

Eugen Müller 2007 Forster Mariengarten Kabinett Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $20

A bit confected and rather sweet-tasting for a kabinett (38 g/l residual sugar), but there’s no denying the prettiness of the fruit. Green apples are joined and rounded out by melon notes and finish on a drier, minerally note of crushed stone.
