'The 2019 vintage is the best vintage I have ever tasted for German riesling in my four-decade career. Like James Suckling, my career as a wine critic began in the early 1980s. The first German vintage I tasted as young wines was 1983 and I can’t remember a vintage like that – until now. The 2019 wines, from dry to classic style with natural grape sweetness are simply astonishing quality, which means 2019 is one of the greatest vintages of modern times and will be remembered for decades, possibility generations.’ Stuart Pigott, James Suckling, September 2020.The 2019
Ruppertsberger Riesling opens with a somewhat wild yet pure and thrilling bouquet of crushed stones and rather floral Riesling aromas. Lush and round on the palate, this is a charmingly fruity, refined and elegant dry Riesling with a salty-crystalline and stimulatingly piquant finish. This is already very expressive terroir Riesling and, after 2018, the second top wine for a rather moderate price. Drink 2023-2036.’ (92-93) points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, August 2020.
