The Wine Advocate 90 - The 2015 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett offers a clear and slatey bouquet of ripe white fruits. Sweet and lush on the palate, this is a light but fruit-intense, very mineral and well-structured Kabinett with a clear, piquant, salty and extremely stimulating finish. However, the wine needs some time to develop its rich source of talents.
This Riesling has it all, super complex and utterly delicious! Christoffel is an absolute joy to drink, and one of the finest German wineries. Everything one can wish from great wine is lavished on these: depth, clarity, complexity, buoyancy, purity and ineffable beauty. Dashingly aromatic with a brilliant luster of flavor and inchoate depth which begs for study. The kinds of wines you keep adding to your notes on; each sip reveals another facet, the second glass differs from the first, the very last sip is still saying fresh new things. There’s a jewel-like firmness here; these aren’t leesy or plush. In general, the Erdeners are thicker and more thrusting; they show better younger. The Ürzigers are refined, fastidious and sleek.
