John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “The ‘basic’ Estate Riesling Trocken from Klaus-Peter Keller is superb in 2015 and will be one of the very best values to be found in the vintage. The bouquet is pure and very stylish, offering up scents of pink grapefruit, tart orange, a touch of petrol, chalky minerality, orange peel and a gentle topnote of wild yeasts. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and very elegant, with a lovely core, bright, ripe acids and a long, seamless and complex finish. There is an effortless beauty to this wine this year that absolutely exemplifies the vintage. 2016-2030. 90”

Vinous (David Schildknecht): “Ripe apple, fresh lime, and Scheurebe-like pink grapefruit inform the forward nose and sleek, animatingly bright, infectiously juicy palate of this extremely high quality ‘intro-level’ Riesling, one Keller has always priced to insure that ‘even those on a budget can be rewarded with something seriously delicious. ‘(And while not that much of its small production comes to the US, I am amazed to see how many shops offer it.) This finishes with verve, consummate refreshment and transparency to a chalky undertone. The last couple of vintages of Keller’s Gutsriesling have benefited from the inclusion of young vines in a high-elevation spot in Dalsheim that had formerly been devoted to Frühburgunder. ‘In 2015’ – 2015! – related Keller proudly, ‘we picked these near the end of October yet with only 84 Oechsle’.” 90/100 pts

Jancis Robinson: “Delicate citrus, pretty lemon nose. Hints of quince and lime. Great freshness and delicacy. Lightweight but persistent. Tastes balanced and pretty much dry but then there’s sweetness of ripe citrus on the finish. Lively and delicate. Just a hint of floral and mineral notes. Amazing length for a wine at this price.” 16.5/20 pts
