Mosel Terraces | Bremm

Angelina and Kilian Franzen’s story is every bit as moving as their wines. Today they have 5 hectares in the Calmont and additional holdings in the venerated Neefer Frauenberg and Kloster Stuben vineyards. Vines are up to 90 years old, their roots driven into the terraced slate, giving immense concentration to the wines. Fermentations are spontaneous, the wines go through malo, and GGs are bottled late. All this accounts for wines of that are as much about texture, herbaceousness, and salinity as they are fruit. They display remarkable freshness and animation as well as density and echoing length.

Franzen 2015 Calmont Riesling trocken

The Bremmer Calmont is the steepest vineyard in the world and the soil is oxidized red Devonian slate with veins of quartzite. This was fermented in stainless steel and like all Franzen dry wines, it underwent malolactic. Cayenne, apple and red peach mark this spicy, compelling riesling.
