Professional reviews:

Vinous: “This leads with intriguingly musky, bittersweet perfume suggesting iris and narcissus, as well as with faintly fusel notes, all of which conjure Niersteiner Ölberg (from which, along with Pettenthal, the fruit is derived). It represents another pithy, piquant performance of a sort familiar from Kühling-Gillot and sibling estate Battenfeld-Spanier, with citrus seed and hickory nut prominent. But like the corresponding Nackenheimer, this bottling also boasts generous primary juiciness in a refreshingly sustained and consequently not at all austere finish. Moreover, a lick of salt stimulates the salivary glands with mouthwatering effect. (Here is another wine onto whose label Gillot and Spanier have snuck the inscription ‘1er C.’) ” 91/100 pts

Falstaff: “Archetypisch im Duft: feuchtes Löschpapier, rauchig, bereits mit einer ersten Entwicklung. Stämmig am Gaumen, gute Säurebalance, homogen druckvoll, mineralische Grundierung, fast jodig, ein feister Ortswein.” 90/100 pts

Wine Advocate (Stephan Reinhardt): “The 2015 Nierstein Riesling Trocken 1er C is still reductive and pretty closed on the intense and dense, somewhat chalk-influenced nose. This is a round and elegant, very charming and nicely salty Riesling with a long, mineral, refreshing finish with citrus flavors. This ambitious Niersteiner Riesling has a certain power and persistence, and an almost calcareous soul with a lingering salinity—even though it is sourced from the red slate soils of Nierstein.” 89/100 pts

JancisRobinson.com: “Big and bold on the nose. Great spread of ripe spicy flavours on the palate with some warm sandstony impression. Fun! Drink 2016-2021.” 17/20 pts
