Dr. Konstantin Frank Eugenia Dry Riesling 2020 / 750 ml.

Item#: 56773

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 9, 2022
This youthful dry riesling has a slew of floral and herbal nuances, together with delicate stone-fruit and wild-berry notes. So elegant, in spite of the full, juicy fruit on the palate. The long, wet-stone finish is racy and pristine. Made with grapes from the estate vineyard on Keuka Lake. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 12th May 2022
The 2020 Dry Riesling Eugenia comes in with three grams of residual sugar against 6.9 of total acidity and 12.9% alcohol. This is a single-vineyard selection from 1968 vines on soils with high slate content. The winery calls it their best Riesling plot. This is a surprisingly friendly wine this year, perhaps typical of the vintage. Maybe one day it will close down, but not today. It is splendid, showing off fine depth, a fruity demeanor and respectable power. As fruity as it is, it shows off a little tension on the finish too. This is very accessible this year, but it’s still likely to improve in the cellar. The winery is a strong proponent of the 2020 vintage (and they aren’t the only ones), but as impressive as this is, and granting that both are not here together, I’d take the 2019 just now. That may be slower-developing, but in a few years, a comparison will be intriguing. They are both very fine.

Where It's From

District / Finger Lakes

View more wines from Finger Lakes

Officially established in 1982, the Finger Lakes region has a storied history of wine production in New York State and is recognized the world over. The deep glacially formed lakes offer sublime growing conditions thanks to the sloping hillsides and moderating effect the lakes have on the temperature of the surrounding area.

The main growing regions are centered around Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake (which each have their own AVAs) but quality wine is being made throughout the region. Riesling is the belle of the ball in the Finger Lakes (oftentimes being compared to the Rieslings of Germany) but success has been had with Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and others.

Region / New York

Seeing as our store is located in the midst of New York's wine regions, we have a special affinity for New York wines. And so should you! New York is now producing some of the world's best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, and there are lots of other terrific wines made from grapes like Catawba, Niagara, Cabernet Franc and others being produced here, as well. Every year, the quality, reputation, and demand for New York wines continue to soar. What are you waiting for? Uncork New York!

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

The 2019 Dry Riesling “Margrit” comes in with 7.39 grams of residual sugar and 9.7 of total acidity, plus 12.8% alcohol. That is dry. This is sourced from a single vineyard on Seneca Lake, owned by the winery, that was planted in 2008. The winery says the site is somewhat warmer than their Keuka Lake properties, producing a riper wine. A big step up over the last I saw, this has power but also a juicy finish that displays fine fruit. As powerful as it is, it not just an acid-freak wine. That long finish is gripping and tense. The aromatics are powerful too, while the mid-palate is simply solid. This food-wine Riesling shows every sign of improving over the next decade. It may have layers yet to reveal. Giving it a year or so of cellar time would be a good idea.

Sourced from a vineyard on Seneca Lake, this wine offers a stony, earthy core surrounded by citrus and apple tones on the nose. The palate is broad and juicy yet dry in style, with honed lemon, pome fruit and crushed stone elements zipping along. (Alexander Peartree)
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2021
Zippy from the start, with pippin apple and slate notes backed a pinch of lime zest on the dry finish. Drink now through 2025. 375 cases made. (James Molesworth)

I love the apple blossom and white peach aromas of this racy and very focused dry riesling that is only medium-bodied (12% alcohol), but it is beautifully balanced with a long crisp wet stone finish. The best vintage of this Finger Lakes stalwart in quite a few years! Drink or hold. Screw cap. (Stuart Pigott)
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2024
A vibrant perfume of honeyed apple, citrus blossom and peach leap from the glass. Dry but with richness and oodles of fruit and floral flavor, this is an unmistakably Finger Lakes expression that finds balance and tangy freshness right to the end. (Christina Pickard)
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 04/23
Scents of lemon and passion fruit have a mildly petrol-like overtone here. The flavors are bright and herbal, fiercely dry, with a mineral grip that’s hunger-inducing for prawns.

Item #: 25030

WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2013
Brisk, lemony and thoroughly refreshing, this sparkler’s ripe pear flavors and mild pear-skin finish would merit a pairing with miso-glazed chicken. It’s also an irresistible aperitif.
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2017
With its juicy, concentrated peach, nectarine and apple flavors, the Célèbre is Dr. Frank’s more approachable, easy-going sparkling. It’s fruity, forward and delicately sweet yet maintains steadfast acidity and a soft, foamy mouthfeel.
VN8787 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2016
Chateau Frank’s NV Célèbre Crémant is a sparkling Riesling made using the méthode Champenoise, with a base wine of 2013. This off-dry wine has a fruity nose of spun sugar, kiwis, green apples, and a pronounced flint tone. The palate is playful and easy-drinking, with a gentle mousse and a sweet caress of fruit. 25 grams per liter residual sugar. Disgorged January 2016.
VN8787 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2019
Definitely an easy-drinking crowd-pleaser that veers toward the sweet-tooth side (30 grams per liter residual sugar). Made from 100% Riesling. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit and honey, with a touch of spice, and soft and creamy on the palate.

The 2020 Riesling HJW Vineyard comes in with six grams of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. This was sourced from HJW vines planted in 1977. This takes the Flower Day Riesling, which is sourced from the younger 2009 vines at HJW, and adds concentration, plus a more unctuous texture while retaining a fairly crisp demeanor relative to what I’m seeing in this group of 2020s. The mouthfeel suggests depth and there are hints of complexity to come. This might be the most nuanced of Wiemer’s wines in this report. Plus, some six hours later, it did a better job of pulling in its parts and showing off its structure. It began to look a bit more like the 2019 and also like one of the nicest winners for Wiemer in 2020, with an excellent chance of improving over the next several years. It will not even be released until the summer of 2022. (Mark Squires)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2022
Delicious from the start, with a burst of meringue, lemon gelée and Jonagold apple flavors backed by jasmine and honeysuckle accents through the long, pure finish. Drink now through 2032. 800 cases made. (James Molesworth)
WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2022
Coiled aromas of yuzu, limestone and white blossoms give this dry Riesling an air of pent-up energy on a nose that’s waiting to explode. The medium-bodied palate delivers tense flavors of citrus peels and crushed stone matched by heady field blossoms, all while juicy apple and peach accents peak out their heads. A gentle grip of white tea, along with well-honed acidity, lend structure and length to it all. (Alexander Peartree)

Lifted aromas of crushed stone, lime peel and spring blossoms show with great intent on the nose. The cohesive palate delivers honed flavors of yellow apple, lime and blossoms wrapped in a gently silky texture that’s honed by well-integrated acidity. Zesty quince and lemon flavors linger on the finish. (Alexander Peartree)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2021
Bright and fresh, with a lively mix of lime zest, peach and fennel notes. Offers good zip on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 421 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Item #: 43125

WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 06/22
A spectacular value, this riesling has the concentration and elegance of wines three times the price. It leads with tree-fruit scents—pear, lime and lime leaf, apple—and carries a caramelly accent throughout. Its flavors are focused, concentrated, effortless, with a sweetness that one never notices, that rounds the wine, keeping it balanced and on point for a sumptuous meal, like a crown roast of pork.
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 9, 2022
A very juicy and citrusy off-dry riesling that has plenty of peach character on the well-structured palate. Striking oyster-shell character at the crisp and vibrant finish that leaps and bounds over the palate. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2022
Rounded aromas of yellow apple and white peach meet dried field flowers and sun-baked clay in this semidry Riesling that deftly balanced fruit and earth elements. The palate shows a pleasing textural creaminess that is further filled out by ripe apple and peach flavors, with plenty of fresh acidity to lend ample balance. (Alexander Peartree)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2022
A nice fresh, crunchy style, which keeps the off-dry edge honest, this sports lime, fennel and pippin apple notes, with a honeysuckle-infused finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,472 cases made. (James Molesworth)

For an entry-level wine this is a stunner! Wonderful nose of white peach, lemon blossom and jasmine. So succulent, with excellent ripeness and concentration, but nothing flashy or any hint of opulence. The best thing about the wine is the long, very silky finish. And this is properly dry. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)
