93 John Gilman (7/2020) "As I mentioned last year, the "Senior" cuvee from Florian Lauer is one of his "village wine" bottlings, though the fruit for this wine hails entirely from the grand cru Ayler Kupp vineyard. The wine comes in at 11.5 percent octane in 2019, carries 7.6 grams per liter of acidity and 13.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. The wine offers up a superb bouquet of tart orange, pink grapefruit, wild yeasts, a beautiful base of slate minerality, lemongrass, citrus peel and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb mineral drive and cut, excellent focus and a long, complex and seamlessly balanced finish. This is a "village wine" the way Jean-François Coche used to make them! (Drink between 2020-2060)"
91 Our Score (1/2021) Florian Lauer is an exceptional winemaker in Mosel who has gone from underrated to well-known in the last decade. The Fass 6 "Senior" is just another example of the incredibly focused wines we have come to expect. With searing acidity, bursting lemon/lime flavors, and a lingering stony, white flower finish this is easily one of the best declassified Riesling in Mosel. Even better is how the wine gets its name...Fass 6 (Fass is German for barrel) "Senior" is affectionately named after Florian Lauer's grandfather, Peter. Every vintage he would taste through the year's wines and select one barrel, for his personal consumption. On this barrel, he would write "Senior." According to Florian, eight or nine times out of ten, his grandfather would pick Fass 6.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
