2013 Riesling Ungeheuer Auslese Von Buhl

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



Peach and persimmon pungently rise from the glass, hauntingly accompanied by rowan// and brown spices, then saturate the palate in viscous, jammy abundance, accompanied by muskmelon and smoky buckwheat honey. Smoke, spices, nutty piquancy, a tart edge of lemon juice and saliva-liberating salinity all help cut against the wine’s strong impression of sheer sweetness, so that even a hint of caramel emerging in the finish does not tip this performance into outright confectionery. And that finish is not just superbly sustained but also remarkably invigorating for a wine of such noble sweetness and enormous richness. The decision was made that this didn’t exhibit the requisite concentration to release as Beerenauslese, but I’d say it’s more BA- than Auslese-type, and the team here, in retrospect, agrees. At 2,000 half bottles, it represents far and away the highest production of the von Buhl Auslesen from vintage 2013. May 2016, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2016-2035
