Riesling Sekt Brut Nature 1992
This is a terroir-specific, vintage, méthode Champenois bottling from one of Germany's greatest producers (it's even hand-riddled) that has seen a near-quarter century of perfect provenance in the cellar. The 1992 was bottled with no dosage and is perhaps the most complex, herbal and mineral of all Lauer's rare releases.
The nose is complex and savory, with an ultra-fine medley of green herbs brightened by citrus and an almost saline minerality. The palate is pure lightning - brisk, with a shimmering citrus and green apple. The acidity is still razor sharp, even after more than two decades of development.
We love it with… a big night or a night chilling with fellow wine geeks 🥂🍾✨🤓🤯
