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 2017 Frauenberg Riesling Grosses Gewächs

This Grosses Gewächs comes from Franzen's oldest vines in the Frauenberg at 70+ years in age. The slate soils in Frauenberg are markedly less oxidized than in the Calmont, resulting in a wine that has typically less spice and more florality than the Calmont GG.
