Ekologisk Kieselberg i sin första Grosse Gewächs skörd.
Jancis Robinson - 17.5
Reichsrat von Buhl doesn’t seem to be averse to a little assistance from oak in their Grosse Gewächse, but the Kieselberg remains mercifully moderate in the use of this tool. Vinous and viscous could sum up the character of this wine. Pears and spice, a touch of herbaceous spontaneity, gentle nuances of aniseed and fennel make for a very enjoyable Grosses Gewächs with complexity looming in the future.
Falstaff Magazin - 93
Spicy greenish Riesling, ripe acidity, great complexity, good hold, very juicy, very persistent.
James Suckling - 92
This is a very serious, dry riesling. Better from 2018 when the salty, mineral character and the elegance will become more prominent.
Vinous - 91-92
Strikingly dusty, stony notes mingle on the nose with scents of mint-laced peach and pineapple, setting the themes that continue on an oily-rich but in no way heavy palate. Adamant dryness certainly reinforces the impressions of stoniness and chalkiness, but they impinge on the palate with invigoratingly tactile counterpoint, and there is no shortage of juicy, bracingly tart-edged and pit-inflected fruit to this Riesling’s impressively sustained finish. It was raised in a large, newish French oak cask (from which I last tasted it) whose presence is only directly noticeable by a faint overlay of resin on the nose as well as the palate.
