Wine Spectator 95pts: "*Highly Recommended* Offers rapierlike focus and acidity to the concentrated and explosively fruity green apple, white cherry and jasmine flavors. Dried sage and chamomile notes linger on the powerful, well-structured finish, showing some hints of white pepper. Complex and refined. (KM)"
Wine Advocate 94pts: "The 2015 Birkweiler Kastanienbusch Riesling trocken GG shows a very pure and complex, almost dusty and wet clay bouquet with herbal flavors. Round, piquant and very elegant on the palate, this is another Mosel-like Riesling from the Southern Pfalz. It is lean but juicy, precise, concentrated and very complex in the finish. Already accessible, but with a long and tension-filled finish, this is a very expressive Riesling with grip and character. Highly recommended. (SR)"
