95 Points!  The 2016 Piesporter Treppchen Riesling "von den Terrassen" was picked at 96° Oechsle ("strangely, like every year," says Stefan Steinmetz) and fermented in stainless steel down to 11.5% alcohol and 20 grams of residual sugar. It is deep, ripe and complex on the nose, with very fine slate aromas and remarkable precision. From up to 90-year-old vines on very well weathered gray slate in high altitudes just below the forest, this is a very elegant and linear but mouth-filling and structured Riesling that tastes very intense and complex, thanks to the old vines and the concentrated fruit. The sweetness of 20 grams per liter is almost completely swallowed by the immense mineral freshness and the well-structured body. "A wine that always needs a lot of time to show its potential," says Stefan Steinmetz. Indeed, this is a very promising, powerful, compact Riesling with remarkable grip and tension. The finish is mouthwateringly salty and highly complex. A great wine to be served in a decade. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate #236
