Trossen Lay Purus 2020
The wine ”Lay” 2020 grew in an old slate site sloping to the south. Grey and
blue slate cover the soil, which warms up quickly and dries quickly after rain.
The vines are 40-year-old Riesling vines, which are densely planted and
therefore the roots have to penetrate deep into the soil and carry the required
water upwards with great energy. The juice fermented slowly and gradually
turned into wine that can rest on the yeast for a long time. As always, the
wine wandered around the cellar between old oak barrels and stainless steel,
was decanted twice to completely remove the yeast and clarify the wine.
The wine has a great density, radiates a majestic calm and is stimulatingly
fresh and has a great drinking flow. This wine should be enjoyed with
devotion in a large Zalto or “Reto Zünd” Glass. It has many ”tongues” and a
great willingness to tell stories about the terroir. So, the 2020 LAY is not to
be compared with the exotic fruit bomb of the 2019 vintage, which weighed
in at 100°. The wine appears rather cool and Nordic: Gothic, rather than
Baroque. More Botticelli as Rubens. But with a fine bouquet, elegant and
with great drinking flow.
In this way, one can really deepen a wine meditation and understand that the
Riesling wines of Moselle and Rhine were counted among the most
expensive and popular wines in the world 120 years ago. Because this wine is
”old-fashioned” in a positive and impressive way. This is how the wines will
have tasted back then, when Riesling wines from Germany were an integral
part of the menu at every Nobel Prize gala dinner.
