Max Ferd. Richter in Mosel Fine Wines

Mosel Fine Wines has released their first batch of scores for the 2017 vintage and the wines from Max Ferd. Richter are getting great press.
"This is yet another stunning collection of wines crafted by young Constantin Richter. While all single-vineyard wines (and especially those made in a fruity style) are highly recommended, we have to underline the extremely high quality of the Estate’s “basic” wines. Unfortunately these are only available in tiny quantities, but no stone should be left unturned in trying to get some of these great QPR champions... All in all there is much to love in the 2017 Richter wines!" (Jean Fisch & David Rayer)

The estate of Max Ferd. Richter has been passed down from father to son for the past 300 years. The current reins are held by Dr. Dirk Richter, the 9th generation, and will eventually be passed down to his son Constantin. The estate produces world-class Rieslings from some of the most esteemed vineyards in the Mosel, and all production comes from estate holdings. The terroir of their steep vineyard sites is generally grey slate with different compositions of ferruginous (Brauneberg), mineral quartz (Veldenz) or clay (Graach, Wehlen, Mülheim) soils; those deeply influence character and flavor  of the wines. Strict attention to quality and detail is paid to all vines from the QBAs on up through the Eisweins. Through the entire line of wines, their hallmark balance is evident in every glass.
