These are our last bottles of this excellent dry Muskateller from Muller-Catoir. This is one of the best examples of Muskateller on the market and is a fantastic value for those who love dry, complex white wines with excellent mineral drive. This is one of the best of all time here, and we still have the only bottles available in the USA, so act quickly before they are gone!
An outrageous deal from this much-loved address, Muller-Catoir is one of our favorite producers in Pfalz. Founded in 1744 between the Rhine River and the Haardt mountains, Muller-Catoir makes an exceptional range of wines. Our top picks have always been their drier creations like the trocken or GG's, and The Bürgergarten Muskateller is always one of the top dry wines from Muller-Catoir. We've offered the Riesling from the special "Im Brumel" parcel before, which is their best wine, but in 2022 the Muskateller or Muscat steals the show at a lower price point. The Muskateller from Muller-Catoir is one of the best in the world, and while this vineyard is most noted for the Riesling, a portion of very fine Muskateller comes from here. The vines are 50 years old here, organic, and grow on weathered yellow sandstone that has been used to produce wine for centuries. With its profoundly expressive aromatics and perpetual finish, this could be one of the greatest Muskatellers ever made and is James Suckling's #1 Muskateller of the vintage. An uncommon find in the USA, we have the only bottles available right now, and while we usually don't offer Muscat, this is a magical wine once again this vintage. A fantastic choice for those that like precise, complex, and mineral-driven white wines, this is good as Muskateller gets, and if it is your first experience with Muscat, there is no better bottle to try, and at $10 less than last vintage, this is a no brainer.
James Suckling 97 points! (Best Muskateller 2023) “Dry muscat can be zesty and refreshing, but it seldom achieves this combination of excellent concentration and great finesse. The interplay of the salty minerality and the juicy fruit (pink grapefruit, pomelo, fresh pineapple) must be tasted to be believed! Super-long and elegant finish that pulls you ever deeper into this muscat masterpiece. From 50-year-old vines."
