Juicy and flowery, this Riesling has a powerful finish
Weingut Richard Böcking
90 points Vinous
A southwest-facing slope that adjoins the Burgberg, looking across the Schottbach side valley. The Böcking parcels in this vineyard are identified in the oldest maps of the Mosel and compete with the Ungsberg as the greatest vineyards in this bend of the Mosel. Our oldest vines grow in Schlossberg, characterized by fine and fragile gray and blue slate.
This wine displays the perfect balance between pure, fresh fruit and mineral flavors indicative of the Scholssberg vineyard. It has a juicy and flowery bouquet; yellow blossoms, green apple with a powerful finish.
“Ripe apple and white peach are garlanded with honeysuckle on the nose and mingled with smoky black tea and saline marine breeze. The midpalate is at once subtly creamy and animatingly juicy and the finish lusciously fruited yet mineral- nuanced; the 14 grams of residual sugar are supportive but do not engender any sense of outright sweetness.” – 90 points, David Schildknecht, Vinous
