2020 Bürklin Wolf Wachenheimer Rechbächel Riesling Premier cru


The monopole Premier cru Rechbächel is widely regarded as the noblest “premier cru” of Wachenheim. In fact, only a sweet spot one third of the vineard is bottled for the premier cru, with the rest going into the ortswein (villages) level bottling. I was unable to secure any of this last time around, so folks, don’t miss it this time around…..

“The 2014 Wachenheimer Rechbächel Riesling Trocken PC is a monopole classified as Erste Lage, but at the moment just one-third of the vineyard has been picked for this cru; whereas another, only six-year-old plot is picked for the village wine. The last third will be replanted only next year. The wine has a coolish and very distinctive aroma of ripe and concentrated, also some overripe Riesling berries along with some discreetly sweetish oak flavors; this migrates to a full-bodied, very elegant, finely racy, and complex palate with a lot of power and expression. This is extremely young Riesling with lots of grip and talent that should be kept in the bottle for further development for another 3-5 years. Great aging potential here and almost, if not really, on grand cru level.” 93 points Stephan Reinhardt for the 2014, NOT THE 2015 OFFERED HERE


“The ripeness of the nectarine and exotic-fruit aromas is immediately apparent, but its the stunning interplay of mineral and tannin structure with that fruit which makes it so exciting. Medium-to full-bodied with a very long, almost electric finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ” 95 Stuart Piggott
