Wine from Weingut Bastgen

The Weingut Bastgen Estate
The property was founded in 1850 and is located in the tiny hamlet of Monzel, along the middle Mosel. The current owners are Armin Vogel (husband) and Mona Bastgen (wife) who began working in the winery in 1993. The average total production is 3,300 cases. They export mainly to Germany, Switzerland, U.K and the U.S. Their wines are bottled in screwcaps.

The Weingut Bastgen Vineyard
They meticulously tend 4.5 ha (11.11 acres) of which 80% is Riesling. The soil is made of slate. Their vineyards are located in Kesten and Brauneberg, on a steep terrace, and planted to 50-year old vines. Fortunately for Bastgen, they own part of the famous Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr. The vines produce very small, ripe berries that are very tasty.

Bastgen Berncastel-Cueser Weisenstein Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2017

Bastgen Berncastel-Cueser Weisenstein Riesling Spatlese Trocken is made from 100 percent Riesling. 


Bright, clean, fresh and zesty. Grapefruit like flavors. Fruity aromas and a nice minerality, typical of the Riesling grape grown on blue slate soil. Round, rich and a very long finish.
The grapes for this wine are vigorously selected. Botrytis is not tolerated. At harvest the grapes are fully ripened, have a golden color, and a soft tartness. After a long spontaneous fermentation in a traditional 1000L barrel, the wine just reaches the dry stage. This gives the wine a creamy structure that interplays with ripe yellow and exotic fruit aromas. A delicate wine that yet has power and fullness, predestined to go with food. 111 cases made.


 Review:
"Fragrant yellow peach and melon notes are accented by earthy whiffs of crushed mineral and slate in this full bodied, luscious Riesling. Ripe yellow peach and apple flavors are rich and penetrating, offset by brisk acidity and a sleek, stony finish. A hedonistic wine to enjoy now through 2030. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"
