2013 Richard Bocking Alte Reben Trarbacher Burgberg Riesling - 88+ PTS - WA

wa88"Ripe, yellow-fleshed fruit aromas with lemon oil and discreet slate aromas open the deep 2013 Trarbacher Burgberg Riesling Alte Reben. Medium to full-bodied, very pure, racy but quite elegant on the palate, the 2013 vintage is leaner and more full of finesse, but less rich and ripe than its predecessor. It also has a more pronounced acidity. This wine reveals a fascinating purity and I am quite sure this Burgberg will be a stunning wine (and potentially more fascinating than the more sensual 2012) in 3-4 years. — Stephan Reinhardt."

2014 Richard Bocking Alte Reben Trarbacher Burgberg Riesling - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"From 75-year-old vines in a site adjacent to the estate’s share of Schlossberg that faces west into the village of Trarbach and away from the Mosel, this bottling finished much drier than the estate’s other 2014s, but at 11 percent alcohol it still evinces a nice sense of levity. Clearer and brighter than the corresponding Schlossberg, its influences of malo and old barrique are in no way problematic, although along with lees influence they make for a subtle impression of creaminess. Apple, white peach and lime deliver generous, tangy juiciness, while stoniness and salinity add interest and saliva-inducement on the persistent finish. - David Schildknecht"
