Kientzler Kirchberg de Ribeauville Riesling Grand Cru 2016
"The 2016 Riesling Grand Cru Kirchberg de Ribeauvillé is still pretty reductive and shows a prominent sulphur note on the nose at this early stage. Full-bodied, fresh and mineral, with ripe fruit and good balance, this is a firmly structured wine with grip, tension and great aging potential. Like always at Kientzler, the wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The addition of sulfur is around 90 milligrams, so readers have to be patient with this Kirchberg. Tasted at the domaine in April, just one week after the bottling. Drink 2025-2040.92+ points." Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com, July 2017.
