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 2021 Calmont Riesling Grosses Gewächs

The vines for the Calmont Grosses Gewächs come from the oldest parcels, on the lower third of the mountain. The resulting wine has power, structure and length noted with signature spice. Like all wines at Franzen this is fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel. Malolactic takes place and elevage continues on the lees for approximately a year before bottling.
