Axel Pauly Purist Riesling Kabinett Trocken : Axel Pauly is one of the rising stars of German wine.

He took over the Pauly estate from his father after doing vintages in California, New Zealand and other parts of Germany.

Most of the seven hectares of vineyards are in the heart of the Mosel Valley in the village of Lieser, with the exception of a small parcel in the highly regarded, neighbouring village of Bernkastel.

The majority of Axel’s wines are dry or off-dry in style and are closed with screw cap to preserve the purity and freshness from Riesling grown on the famous slate soils of the Mosel. Axel Pauly

Vineyards

‘Purist’ Riesling was harvested from the family’s steeply sloping vineyard in Lieser. Here, the soil is predominantly grey and blue slate, which is cooler than the red slate of neighbouring Bernkastel and seems to give more minerally wines than the latter.

Stringent crop-thinning and leaf-plucking ensured excellent flavour concentration in the ripe grapes, which were sorted and picked manually, to ensure only the best berries were selected at harvest time.

The wine is a Kabinett, meaning that it was harvested slightly later in the season, resulting in riper fruit and a fuller palate than the earlier-picked styles.

Vintage information

Due to warm, damp weather, vintage 2014 was a challenging one. Bud break started in early April during a warm, dry start to spring.

The flowering period was slightly earlier than average, with great weather providing a good fruit set. An overabundance of rain in July and August (three times the normal amount in some areas) resulted in prolific growth in the vineyards, requiring a lot of canopy management.

Despite all the wet weather, the grapes stayed healthy with good must weights. A perfect start to September took an unexpected turn right before harvest, and rain forced the picking to be done very quickly, with most fruit at the winery by the end of the first week of October.

Quantity was on par with the ten-year average, and quality was very good thanks to attention to detail and hard work in the vineyards.

Vinification

The grapes underwent skin contact for 20 hours prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks, in order to extract precious Riesling flavours.

The fermentation lasted three weeks at 19°C, with natural yeasts used for this wine. The wine was kept in inert, large oak barrels for five months, which resulted in a more mellow, smooth wine but without any hint of oak.

Tasting Notes

Axel describes the 2014 Purist as his best vintage so far. The nose has fresh hay aromas along with yellow and exotic fruits.

The palate is bone dry, with a striking mineral character and subtle but pure tropical fruit notes before the long finish.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre Quick View

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2018

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy Quick View

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
