2015 Forster Riesling Von Buhl

Writing for Wine Advocate, Stephan Reinhardt says: Wine lovers who are looking for the finest dry Rieslings of the 2015 vintage in Germany shouldn't miss the exceptional wines from Reichsrat von Buhl. Mathieu Kauffmann, born in Sélestat/Alsace and chef du cave at Bollinger in Champagne for many years, is about to bottle an outstanding series of dry Rieslings. Lead by the Forster Riesling GGs Pechstein and Ungeheuer, these two wines are two of the greatest dry German Rieslings I can remember. Kauffmann's Buhl Rieslings are highly complex, terroir-driven, very mineral and fresh, tightly woven and will develop over many years. Honestly, I was blown away by both the style and quality, but should also add that the 2015s are probably too complex for beginners. You really have to be a Riesling maniac to feel the rhythm of these wines.”

The citrus/golden-colored 2015 Forster Riesling is dense, clear and aromatic on the nose and shows flinty aromas along with ripe Riesling flavors. Very vital and pure on the palate, the wine reveals a great grip and tension. Its power comes from the depth, not from the alcohol. The finish is long, complex and very salty, revealing a pure, concentrated and firmly-structured baby Riesling. This has great expression and talents. The finish and aftertaste reveal some refreshing white and lemony aromas; it does not have the rich and opulent stone fruit flavor you often find in Pfalz, as well as in Forst Rieslings. The finish is long, pure, salty and enormously vital. Jun 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2018-2025
