2014 Bastgen Blauschiefer Riesling QBA - 92 PTS + BEST BUY - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Mona Bastgen and her husband, Armin Vogel, blend this wine from several of their organically farmed parcels in and around Bernkasteler-Kues, focusing on vines growing on blue-gray slate. It's tight and muscular, the flavors pithy and spicy, as if infused with stone. The most impressive element is how long and firmthe flavors are, pristine and elegant in shape and timbre"

2018 Bastgen Blauschiefer Riesling - 89 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 89 pts"From nose to finish, this is an ebulliently fruity wine offering loads of concentrated white peach and apricot notes. It's just a shade off-dry and an easy people-pleaser, but it's also a surprisingly stealthy wine with a finish that feels cut by shards of slate and salt. An elegant, satisfying wine with wide appeal. - Anna LEE C. IIJIMA"

james suckling hq logo plain"Very enticing nose of ripe pear with some white peach and floral aromas! All the elegance and delicacy we expect from high-quality Mosel riesling, but this light-bodied and dry beauty is only an entry-level wine! Long, refreshing and delicate finish. This will be a bargain in all the markets it reaches. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap. "
