100% Riesling from GrCru sites in the Mosel, Champagne method and hand disgorged. The nose has more presence to it versus the 2013, with baking spice a light tropical fruit and pineapple with a light mineral note to the finish. The palate has a little presence to it with slate minerality, and subdued tropical fruit. D&M Tasting Notes
Ingo Simon is frequently in other wine regions to produce sparkling wine, flying as far as Georgia (Ukraine) to manage the production of a red wine project. He is a real character, who can be funny as hell with his wry wit, but when it comes to his winemaking craft, he’s got it together. He is the driving force behind this small family venture located in the tiny and somewhat unknown town of Losnich—bordering to the east the more famous villages of Erden and Urzig—which produces Rieslings from steep hillside vineyards located in the Middle Mosel across the river from the famous vineyards where he gets his fruit: Urziger Wurtzgarten (Spice Garden) and Erdener Treppchen (Stairway to Erden).
Aside from not being an ordinary guy in these parts, neither are his wines; he specializes in Sekt wine—sparkling wine made from Riesling. One of the fun facts about his sparkling Rieslings is that its dosage, or the amount of sugar added to sparkling wines (which usually comes from regular old sugar), comes from high-sugar Auslese grapes, grown in his two famous vineyards across the river.
