Ref: HAAG040
White  |  Still  |  7.5% ABV

The first documented mention of the estate came in 1605, at a time when the town was known as Dusemond. To better invoke the stellar reputation of the world-famous "Brauneberger Juffer" and "Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr" — which Napoleon himself had considered pearls of the Mosel region — the town renamed itself in 1925 from Dusemond to Brauneberg. Oliver Haag took over the estate in 2005 and has been managing it together with his wife Jessica ever since.

Tasting Notes

"The 2004 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule A.P. #9 consists of a selection of very tiny and in small measure botrytised berries. Smelling of peach jam and fresh lemon, this comes onto the palate with meaty, low toned richness, like a medley of veal stock, honey-drenched toasted nuts, and spice-tinged caramelized pit fruits. A lavishly creamy texture is pit against insistently bright citrus, yet the flavor marriage is harmonious and the long finish ultra-pure, elegant and without heaviness. The layering of honey, caramelized and fresh fruits, citrus, and slate displayed is surely worthy of three decade’s worth of archeological investigation." David Schildknecht

Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
