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 2020 Elbling

This is an ancient grape, thought to have been planted in the Mosel region by the Romans. Elbling is an offspring of gouais blanc and is a cross between traminer and some unidentified variety, which has the same parentage as riesling. Elbling is typically more acidic and more tropical than riesling, but in Franzen’s hands, the wine is zippy yet round.
