    179, The Wine Advocate

    Near the end of the harvest, Leitz gathered a 2006 Rudesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling Beerenauslese from within the parcel that normally supplies his off-dry Spatlese. Vanilla, pistachio paste, honey, and marzipan give this a confectionary cast from nose to finish. Whiffs of smoke and twists of citrus zest add counterpoint. Incredibly creamy and polished in texture, this finishes with terrific length, a core of fresh juiciness, and a sweetness that fits its personality without becoming cloying. One could safely cellar it for at least a quarter century. Leitz began picking September 21st, so that his high-volume, off-dry export wines (as well as most of the precocious Kaisersteinfels) were harvested before the Great Rain, and the entire harvest was completed by October 18. The majority of the Rudesheimer Berg vineyards were picked at must weights higher even than those of 2003, but fortunately at significantly higher levels of acidity than in that year (or in 2005). Largely navigating the pitfalls of botrytis and high alcohol, Leitz rendered a remarkable collection of dry wines.
