With over 160 years’ experience, Von Buhl is one of Germany’s finest estates, and attracts high praise from critics every year. Their Riesling No.1 is exceptional, with zesty lime, ripe peach, mineral freshness and lovely bite. A terrific dry white.
Rieslings of the Reichsrat Von Buhl estate consistently receive over 90 out of 100 points from Wine Spectator and Robert Parker. A leading German wine publication lists a Von Buhl wine amongst the best 100 in the world, and their top releases sell for £150 a half bottle. Since 2013 the winemaker has been Mathieu Kauffmann, who was previously at the helm at Bollinger Champagne. His expertise shines through in this exclusive cuvée from the ripe 2018 vintage. The wine is crafted from organically grown grapes, selected by Mathieu. Riesling Nr 1 is bright and well zipped with a delightful echo of lime, pears and peaches. It is thoroughly appetising with almost any food, from poached salmon to roast chicken to cheese and fruit – even Thai curry.
"Since the arrival of Mathieu Kauffmann as winemaker, Reichsrat Von Buhl has been leading the field"
