Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 1998 Ruppertsberger Gaisbohl Spätlese Trocken Riesling (Pfalz)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $37
This 14-acre monopole is Dr. B-W’s top property. The wine has big fruit, but is still tight, with interlaced layers of pineapple, lime and mineral with a waxy note. Extremely concentrated and rich, with a slightly viscous mouthfeel, it’s a baby that’s impressive for its vigor, density and superbly balanced weight. Talk about structure—after two days, it showed even…  — W.E.  (8/1/2001)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 2004 Deidesheimer Hohenmorgen GC Fass 23 QbA Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $50
Starts slow, gradually ramping up its complexity and concentration as it warms in the glass, eventually opening up to show scents of diesel and peach pit alongside flavors of lime, peach and melon. Throughout, there’s a strong sensation of minerality, ending on a crisp, mouthwatering note. Imported by Classical Wines.  — J.C.  (5/1/2006)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 1998 Ruppertsberger Hoheburg Spätlese Trocken Riesling (Pfalz)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $23
Explosive ripe, luscious fruit bursts from the glass in the pungent nose and expands full throttle on the palate. The flavors, complex and layered, include honeysuckle, lime, mineral and some lovely, tropical fruit—especially mango and pineapple. Long and seamless. Editors’ Choice.  — P.G.  (8/1/2001)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 1990 Wachenheimer Rechbächel 'R' Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $44
Yes, this is the current release. The “R” series of Dr. B-W has a minimum of 5 years in bottle; in this case it’s 10. The concentrated and intense superripe aromas and flavors are not too sweet, show no botrytis and are still quite lively at this age. Tropical fruit, orange and pure grape flavors mingle sensuously with spice and vanilla. They play out on a long…  — W.E.  (8/1/2001)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 2001 Bürklin Estate Riesling (Pfalz)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $16
Rich and a bit sweet, this is an atypically powerful wine. Full-bodied, powerful flavors of ripe apples and green plums are balanced by citrusy acids; complexity is added by notes of menthol and floral greens. Editors’ Choice. —J.C.  — J.C.  (3/1/2003)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 2002 Wachenheimer Rechbächel Qualitätswein Trocken Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $26
This is a big, broad-shouldered Riesling that for all its size stays soft and friendly in the middle. Smoky, leesy aromas give way to flavors of mineral oil ladled over spiced pears. There’s a sense of custardy richness that lingers on the finish.  — J.C.  (11/1/2004)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 1998 Wachenheimer Rechbächel Spätlese Trocken Riesling (Pfalz)

  1. $28
The soft, spicy scents of the bouquet mix grapes, flowers, talcum powder and a faint petrol note to create an almost Gewürz-like symphony. It’s lovely and impressively complex, as layers of grape flavor, flowers, minerals and citrus rind gain power in the mouth. The mineral elements come up on the tangy finish. Exotic and smooth, it is immediately appealing but…  — W.E.  (8/1/2001)

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf 2004 Forster Kirchenstück GC Riesling QbA Trocken (Pfalz)

  1. $80
Unique and idiosyncratic, this extravagantly priced wine certainly makes a statement. Smoky, mineral and spice scents are layered over tropical fruits that range from mango to lychee. Clean and crisp on the finish, without the same length as Bürklin-Wolf’s Deidesheimer Hohenmorgen. Imported by Classical Wines.  — J.C.  (5/1/2006)
