2022: James Suckling: 95/100 "This youthful beauty needs some aeration for the wealth of stone fruit, mandarin orange and orange blossom aromas to fully unfurl. Concentrated and compact with stacks of wet stone minerality this is a strong wine that some may find a bit demanding right now, but this has been built for the long haul and has great potential."
2021: James Suckling: 95/100 "A stunning single-vineyard dry riesling with apricot and mango aromas plus a wonderful harmony of ripeness and freshness on the generous and concentrated palate. The fine tannins and mineral acidity at the finish support this beautifully. So much apricot character and citrusy freshness at the very long finish." | Wine Enthusiast: "This is very classic in profile. An elegant frame sports shadings of ginger spice and minerality, with flavors of apricot and citrus, all together in an expressive, harmonious package. The inviting finish caps it." | Wine Enthusiast: "This is quite subtle at the moment, with an intense acidity forming the backbone for the notes of green apple and pear. Acidity forms the structure and gives this focus, but also keeps this away from showing its full flavor spectrum. Give it time. Best after 2027."
2020: James Suckling: 95/100 "Deep stone-fruit and citrus aromas with some blossom notes. Stunning balance of ripe yet finely nuanced fruit and elegant acidity that then tightens to a long and pointed mineral finish that takes your breath away. Drink or hold."
2019: James Suckling: 96/100 Points (TOP 100 WINES OF GERMANY 2020) "There’s so much peach and apricot beauty in this glass of dry riesling that you feel thankful to the power of nature that made it possible. So deep and so vibrant, but it’s the elegance that makes it shine like a diamond. Very long, silky finish that doesn’t want to let go. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." | Robert Parker: (91-92)/100 Points "The 2019 Bürgergarten Riesling is clear and dusty/stony on the pure and puristic yet aromatic and distinctive nose that shows notes of crushed stones as well as ripe and elegant fruit. On the palate, this is a juicy, round, quite concentrated, almost mouth-filling yet also pure, tight, mineral and fine dry Riesling with a certain phenolic grip and a clear, salty finish. Still terribly young. Tasted as a sample in April and June 2020." | Gault & Millau Palatinate 2021: 4/5 Grapes "Lean and rich in finesse, refreshingly crisp with a fine play of acidity and sweetness in the finale." | Eichelmann: "The Bürgergarten is already very present among the two Erste Lage Rieslings, shows yellow fruit, apricot, pineapple and herbal notes in the bouquet, is elegant and stimulating on the palate." | Ronn Wiegand: 5/5 "Two terrific dry Rieslings. The Burgergarten is medium rich, supple, and well balanced, with excellent depth and flavor (peach, honeysuckle, lime, pineapple), and a very long finish. Delicious dry Riesling and a great value; warrants at least 2 more years of aging."
2018: James Suckling: 94/100 Points "Dried cloves, white pepper, saffron and lighter notes of almonds and cherry blossom. Full-bodied and powerful with a serious tannin structure, but there’s a wealth of finely tuned acidity behind that. Drink now or hold." | Robert Parker: 90+/100 Points "The 2018 Bürgergarten Riesling needed three bottles to convince me until it opened clear, pure and intense, with crushed stones and fresh ginger aromas on the nose. Pure, fresh and bright on the palate, this is a lithe, lush and salty dry Riesling with refreshing mineral grip and tension on the finish." | RESTAURANT WINE® Issues #190-193: 4+/5 stars "Full bodied and fairly rich in flavor (white peach, passionfruit, lime, apple), this is a well balanced, elegant Riesling, with a very long finish. Still quite young; warrants 5+ more years of aging. Great value! Unwooded. Organic. [2024-2028]" | enos 9th Riesling Challenge: 1st place in the category "Tastefully dry Rieslings of vintage 2018"
