Tasting Notes

For me this is the summit among Schaefer’s ‘15s, unusually as they’re not really associated with Wehlen, as their parcels are quite small. If I ever said “OMG,” this is when I would say it. What a fragrance here! Unreal, almost ethereal blue slate and vanilla and shady herbs. It’s a spirit-kin to Ockfener Bockstein. Plum-blossom enters this shimmering stunning young masterpiece from Schaefer; an equipoise of divinity and urgency, a lapsed Buddhist monk who left the monastery because he was too fond of éclairs. We don’t use the word “noble” all that much, it’s kind of vague and twee—but this is what it means. — Terry Theise
