Here’s the open, obvious secret: Lauer’s “Senior” is one of the of the greatest values in German wine, and frankly white wine, period. While Lauer considers this a village-level wine (special Lauer label-reading tip: any bottle with a green circle on it is considered a village-level wine), the “Senior” is in fact a single-vineyard wine sourced completely from the Grand Cru Kupp. With an average vine age of around 70 years and a plethora of ungrafted vines, this is a wine that punches well above its price. It is Grand Cru for the price of village, plain and simple.

From Mosel Fine Wines, Issue No. 66: "The 2022er Ayler Riesling “Senior” N°6 is an off-dry wine (with 11 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit harvested from the original Kupp hill on a west-facing section towards Wawern. Initially still slightly reductive, this offers an aromatic and appealing nose of candied lime, grapefruit zest, herbal tea, greengage, dried white flowers, and spices. The wine proves delicately playful and smooth on the nicely juicy and animating palate. The finish is nicely clean and long with a fine spicy touch. The after-taste proves light and refined. This barely off-dry yet superbly juicy Riesling is very good."
