Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  had a tasting of  88 Wines  from  78 Producers 

2017 is a vintage bringing back Bordeaux to its roots, offering a very classic wine style with lower alcohol levels than in the previous years but with often excellent aromatic expression. 2015 and 2016 have surely been better vintages than last year, but based on a first impression 2017 seems to be better than 2014. The evolution will show, that 2017 is far from becoming a "forgotten vintage". Some nice surprises will be waiting for us.

Martin Conrad represents the 14th generation of his family in the world of wine. 1558 his ancestors were first mentioned for growing grapes in Brauneberg. However for Martin Conrad  tradition does not exclude innovation. Since 1998 he produces vegan wines and in 1999 after successfully finishing his studies he took over the winery from his father. Today he is an acclaimed wine producer and one may find his Rieslings also in Michelin-starred restaurants. His winery is member of the prestigious association "Bernkasteler Ring".

The Kronenschlösschen at Hattenheim is one of the places of pilgrimage for friends of mature wines. The cellar lists an enormous amount of different wines with a great depth of vintages. Meeting friends at that place is a great pleasure, especially when some great wines are on the gable. The meeting started already on Saturday night with an excellent magnum of Moet & Chandon 1964 and continued on Sunday for lunch with three icons of the wine world. Teh 2005 Château Haut-Brion blanc and the 1962 were served blind, without any hint what it could be, an exciting experience for a Sunday lunch.

The 13th edition of the rare wine tasting of Kloster Eberbach featured a wonderful series of Pinot Noirs from the Höllenberg, down to 1938. A flight of 1958 showed the diversity within one vintage from different sites. A vertical of Steinberg and a great vertical of Trockenbeerenauslese were the great final of a quite memorable tasting.

Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  had a tasting of  15 Wines  from  15 Producers 

An eclectic choice of excellent wines was presented in a tasting hold at the home of a wine collector in Essen. The occasion was the tasting of the legendary 1727 Rüdesheimer Apostelwein of the Rathskeller Bremen. This deeply impressing wine was framed by a series of excellent growths from Germany, France, Italy and Spain.

Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  had a wine moment

“1727 Rüdesheimer Apostelwein – Bremer Rathskeller

1727, Johann Sebastian Bach presents the oratorio „Matthäus Passion“, Georg Friedrich Händel composes the Coronation Anthems for King George III, the Italian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo is born, the scientist Isaac Newton dies aged 84 and the Rheingau vintners harvest an exceptional vintage. The vintage 1727 features wines of great fame which were very much in demand. Therefore the city council of Bremen decided to cellar a barrel of this extraordinary vintage beneath the Town Hall of Bremen. The so called „12 Apostels cellar“ became the home of this rarity, already sought after in the 19th century: The London based auctioneer Christie’s presented a dozen of bottles of the 1727 in his wine catalogue from 1829. The bottles were sold for 5 pounds, a fortune in the early nineteenth century. The last half bottle sold at Christie’s was in 2008, when the wine was sold for more than 6000€.

During the ageing process in the cellars at Bremen, different bottlings have been made. The half bottle which was presented on October 6, 2017 has been bottled in the sixties, it was the last bottling. The wine originates from the so called Judas cask and is arguably the oldest, still drinkable wine worldwide. The grape variety of this wine is unknown. At the time being, the vineyards where planted in mixed plantations. It is thought that White Orleans could be the main grape variety, Riesling might have played a minor role in the blend.

Ten tasters gathered on October 6 in a cellar at Essen and were anxiously waiting to taste the wine. Tasting such a rare bottles is a special experience. Only two wines are known with an older age: the last bottle of 1540 Stein from Würzburg which is kept in the cellars of the Bürgerspital Würzburg and a cask of 1653 Rüdesheimer, which is still ageing in the Rose cellar of the town hall of Bremen. However, both of these rarities are not accessible for tastings and not on sale. Expectations were high and –to make long story short- were absolutely fulfilled. The 1727 was shipped from the Bremer Ratskeller two weeks before the tasting day and opened one hour before service. It showed an amber colour with a slight copper coloured hue. The nose was very expressive displaying an aroma reminiscent of oranges, candied orange peel and bitter almonds at the beginning. After a quarter of an hour the aroma of candied orange peel intensified and was complemented with hints of dried fruits, mainly apricots. Another ten minutes later the nose turned towards a quite spicy expression with aroma reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg blossoms. The fruit still developed positively remaining on dried apricots and hints of candied orange peel. After more than half an hour hints of walnuts showed up. Half an hour later the first hints of flowery and blossoms were turning up: white lilies, honey and white blossoms. It was interesting to see, how the different aromatic components showed up, intensified than faded and some of them were coming back on a regular rhythm, especially the aroma reminiscent of English fruit cake, balmy spices and roasting notes.


After three hours in the glass the aroma reminiscent of walnuts, caramel, raisins and butterscotch intensified. Interestingly the nose kept hints of dried fruits for over six hours in the glass. The palate was exceptional from the beginning, displaying a creamy texture, fine acidity and a hint of sweetness. A wine with 290 years of age with surprising freshness. Even after six hours in the glass, the wine showed a mild character with hints of candied lemon peel. When the glasses were finally emptied more than six hours after service, they kept displaying an intense aroma of sherry, walnuts, dried pineapple and candied orange peel. A unique experience.
It was my second bottle of this wine. The first time I had the pleasure to taste it over five years ago. Comparing the tasting notes from that time, there were a lot of parallels, however this bottle was even more perfect.
Rating: 100/100

1878 Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte - 100 points. Still lively, bright ruby colour. Excellent and expressive nose, slightly smoky, roasted chestnuts, hints of dried fruit, noble leather, classical style with perfect maturity and very persistent character. On the palate great elegance, depth and length, hints of minerality and a slight metallic hint in the background. A great bottle, close to perfection.

The Perrin family hosted this year’s magnum dinner of the Scandinavian sommeliers and invited for a vist at Château de Beaucastel. After a visit of the cellar and the tasting of all grape varieties vinified in the 2016 vintage, a lunch was prepared by the fantastic team of the Restaurant L’Oustalet in Gigondas. Red Mullets from the Mediterranean Sea were prepared in a crust of sea salt and accompanied by Zucchini flowers in Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Miraval.

The wine to match was the white 2014 Châteauneuf de Beaucastel Vieilles Vignes. The second course featured ravioli with chestnuts and fungus boletus, perfectly matched by the red 2011 Château de Beaucastel. The main course was a young duck breast with cloves-butter, taking in account the aroma of the 1990 Château de Beaucastel. The excellent white 1998 Château de Beaucastel Vieilles Vignes was a highlight with the 18 Months old Laguiole AOP cheese. The end of this admirable lunch was a tasting of the 2000 Hommage à Jacques Perrin and the 1961 Château de Beaucastel
