2013 Richard Bocking Alte Reben Trarbacher Schlossberg Riesling - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"Bottled with 18 grams of residual sugar and 12% alcohol, the 2013 Trarbacher Schlossberg Riesling Alte Reben opens with an intensely floral and concentrated bouquet, whereas its pure, deep, ripe and concentrated fruit aromas (maracuya) emerge only slowly but very precisely. There is a certain relationship to the Chenin Blancs from Svennières, perhaps. Full-bodied, powerful and complex on the palate, this remarkable rich but pure, delicate and well-balanced Riesling from ungrafted, 80-year-old vines on grey and blue slate with quartzite inclusions, reveals a persistent and salty finish which makes this, maybe, the most impressive (but also most powerful) wine of the recently revitalized estate, so far. — Stephan Reinhardt."
- Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (Issue 217, February 2015), 90 pts

2014 Richard Bocking Alte Reben Trarbacher Schlossberg Riesling - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Weighing in at just 10 percent alcohol even though it misses being legally trocken by less than a gram, this bottling comes from 80-year-old vines in a southwest-facing portion of the Schlossberg Einzellage. In the present instance, grapefruit and pineapple are accented with kelp-like, alkaline and saline notes both on the nose and on the palate. There is a fine sense of animation and refreshment, with tangy pineapple core and alkaline mineral notes combining for a stimulating finish, albeit one that has sacrificed a bit of brightness and focus to malolactic transformation and old barrique. - David Schildknecht"
